  • There is a a policy setting which applies to Windows 7 and Windows 2008 R2 systems.

    Access the local policy by running GPEDIT.MSC.

    Navigate to the following:

    Local computer policy
    --> Computer Configuration
    ----> Administrative Templates
    ------> System
    --------> Logon
                  

    Always Use custom logon background

    Ignores Windows Logon Background.

    This policy setting may be used to make Windows give preference to a custom logon background. If you enable this policy setting, the logon screen will always attempt to load a custom background instead of the Windows-branded logon background. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, Windows will use the default Windows logon background or custom background.

  • Hi,

    The policy "Always Use custom logon background" set the registry OEMBackground.

    You still need place a background picture in %windir%\system32\oobe\info\backgrounds folder. For detailed information, please refer to the following article:
