Hi, I want to know how to change the home screen and the banners in the login screens, the logo in the start menu and the winver logo so that instead of showing "Windows 2000 Advanced Server" it shows "Windows Powered". use reshacker or edit the resources of MSGINA.DLL among others!

There is a program called TweakNT that it is possible to change Advanced server to Datacenter server. But what things do you edit in the registry to tell me what that edition is? Since Powered does not appear in the list of editions.

You can edit Shell32.DLL for the banner that shows up during startup, I believe, and you can also change the banner and build number that way as well.

There has been quite a bit of discussion about Windows Powered. Here's a couple of other topics about it:

viewtopic.php?f=16&t=35500 (warning: I'm a bit cringy in this one, but it does include discussion over if some ISOs are legit or not.)
viewtopic.php?f=61&t=39131 (a more technical discussion on it, with a focus on how Windows 2000 handles branding and SKUs)

Yes, replace the Advanced Server/Server Family bitmaps in msgina.dll and shell32.dll with those of Windows Powered. You can do the same with the boot screen in ntoskrnl.exe.

The start menu banner is in explorer.exe (along with ones for Windows 2000 Terminal (Server) and Windows 2000 Embedded)

Considering that Microsoft kept Windows Powered under wraps, I guess that TweakNT developers weren't aware of its existence.

Hey, just a heads-up, if you want to do this with XP, the same methods work :)
There are also some icons you can change in explorer.exe if you need to

No. Login window stuff is solely in msgina.dll.
