How to Customize Boot Logo on Mac OS X

Mac OS X is one of the smartest operating systems available for desktop or laptop. Especially the latest Mac OS X El Capitan, feature like Split View is catching eyeballs around the globe. It’s a human psychology; everything seems to be less after a certain period of time.

We tend to change things every now and then. We keep changing wallpapers on our Mac as per our mood, but we hardly consider changing the boot logo. That’s because we have assumed that it cannot be changed. But to your surprise, we can customize or change our boot logo.

So, if you are bored of seeing the same logo, we will provide a solution to change it. We will need to download a third-party app in order to do this. Just follow the steps given below:

  1. Animated images are not supported, so don’t use it
  2. Apple original logo is 90 x 90, so you will need to resize your image to this dimension
  3. Large size images might not be displayed. Instead, a complete black boot screen will be visible

BootXChanger comes with some sample images which you can use. Apart from logo, you can also change the background color of your boot screen, in order to match your new logo.
