Does anyone know an easy way to stamp the PC hostname to the Windows 7 backgroundDefault.jpg image?
We are using Bginfo via Group Policy for stamping user desktops, but that doesn't work for the pre-logon desktop image as far as I can see.
Anyone got, or know of, a script that will write the hostname to the backgroundDefault.jpg image? (maybe using ImageMagick or similar)
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

I do this by running BGInfo in a shutdown script.
Err, well at least on XP I do, W7 I've not invested the time to try it yet.

Vote one for BGInfo here too, and yep we have it working on Windows 7.

I can get it to work on W7 for user desktops, just not the pre-logon wallpaper (backgroundDefault.jpg).

So, the only thing I can think of at the moment is some way of stamping the PC Hostname onto the backgroundDefault.jpg
