    Hi,

    Would like to change the initial startup screen logo and background.
    I find the blank white screen super glaring especially at night.
    Can anyone advise on how to change?

    Thanks

    I don't think it's possible to change the startup screen as it's built into EFI I think (will show up without HD). You can change the login screen but that's not what you meant

    There used to be an application called BootXChanger that would allow you to change the logo.

    I haven't tried this but here is a link...
