    Hey All,
    Ive come to know that there are some pretty smart people here at iPTF and have a question for anyone who has experience changing the icons for windows and mac when you hold option at bootup.

    I got the OS X (Macintosh HD) icon to change but when I tried to use this guide it didnt work.

    Any help at all would be really, uh, helpful.

    Thanks

    Changing the Windows HDD icon is pretty hard, requires another FAT32 little flash drive or something. I just kept it the way it is.

    If there is an easier more automated way, be sure to hit me up

    Yeah, that's what I did, I even bough a little 1GB flash drive to do it, brought to windows formatted it with FAT and brought back to OSX and entered the terminal codes,

    Code:
    cd /Volumes
     ls -la
    and

    HTML:
    cp ._USBSTICK ._WinXP
    and then in windows

    HTML:
    attrib +H +S .VolumeIcon.icns
    and I did remember to change the locations to the actual locations of my flash drive and the .icns file.
