  • I changed mine using the instructions on page 257 of "Windows Home Server Unleashed".  You replace C:\Inetpub\home\images\i_landingpage_main.png (759 x 316 pixels) and C:\Inetpub\remote\images\i_default_photo.png (263 x 148 pixels) with your images. Make sure they're the same size.

    You should keep copies of these in another spot because installing PP2 reverted mine back to the default ones.

  • Hi,
    this is the smaller one, which Don mentioned in his answer (C:\Inetpub\remote\images\i_default_photo.png).
    To change this, you need to logon locally on your Windows Home Server (or use Remote Desktop).
