    Should be able to get the default logon back the same way you did for win 7,the other option is use logonstudio from wincustomize ,then either have original reset by selecting & applying or use any of the logons from the download gallery or have a picture of your choice as the logon,there's cursorfx as well if you want to change the cursor to somth'n better,both programs are free may as well look at objectdock as well while your there..lol..

    1. Boot into Windows vista and click on "Start button -> All Programs -> Accessories". Now right-click on "Command Prompt" and select "Run As Administrator". If you are prompted to enter password, enter the password and continue. You can also open Command Prompt in Administrator mode by typing "cmd" in Start Menu Search box and press "Ctrl+Shift+Enter".

    2. Now provide following command:

    bcdedit /set {current} locale en-US

    The above command is for English version of Windows, if you are using some other language version, then change "en-US" to your own locale.

    3. Exit Command Prompt and restart your system. Now the new animated Windows vista boot screen should be back in action.

    NOTE: If the above method doesnt work for you, provide following command again using Command Prompt:

    bcdboot %WinDir% /l en-US

    And restart your system. Itll work now.

    bcdboot %windir% /1 en_US
    'bcdboot' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
    first command says it worked but still no logo. it did not give me the option to reboot or not either like it did on windows 7
