Interesting. For what purpose exactly? –  Martheen Cahya Paulo Jul 10 '11 at 9:37
    
Is this for a base image deployment (ie. Zero Touch Deployment)? Or to automate your manual installations (ie. autounattend.xml)? Or just a single computer, one of change (for all users or just one user??) ? –  ovann86 Jul 10 '11 at 9:45

You can set it to a solid color. Is that what you mean? –  Andrew Lambert Jul 10 '11 at 9:49
