hello there folks, i searched the forums but I don't think i used the proper search terms :-S

The reason for my posting is i am looking for the image files that are used on the xbmcbuntu boot splash shown here for my windows 7 HTPC setup. I am using Windows 7 boot updater and am able to do all my image manipulation through gimp. If anyone could please provide me with these files i would be much obliged. If successful I will provide it to the community for the Windows 7 HTPC users out there.

EDIT** i forgot to mention i would like the files in png or bmp if possible...thanks in advance
The splash from your link is outdated. Why don't you use the new one? Splash.png is installed with XBMC.
He's looking for the boot images, i.e. the logo linked as well as the white dots filling in, so that he see's the same thing on his Windows install as it's booting as you do on the Linux side. What you've linked to is the splash screen when XBMC starts, not what shows as the entire PC is booting.

To the OP, I'm not sure where exactly they're stored on the XBMCbuntu ISO, but you can probably extract the entire thing and look in the grub or boot folders to try and find them.
@pumkinut that's exactly what im looking for. i have downloaded the iso but the only images ive found were back.png and another that isnt even close to what im looking for.

@FernetMenta i already changed splash.png to a pic of my liking.
The splash is ubuntu default plymouth script, just replaced with an XBMC logo.

By Golly I've done it! It can be found here and the program used for updating the boot screen can be found here feedback is appreciated and help too if its necessary.
You do realize you posted this in a Linux thread and has nothing to do with Linux except some image right?

I do believe this is what your looking for http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=138747
