Thin Client boot logo and command prompt


I am currently trying to configure a Thin Client to be imaged and duplicated, and I am running into two problems:

No command prompt
I have tried shortcut keys and sending commands using the HP Device Manager

Changing the boot logo
My management would like the thin clients to have all the bells and whistles. One of which is having the company logo displayed on boot up and shut down. There is an application, Splashy Manager, but it looks like you have to already have a theme designed in order to use it.

Any ideas?

I checked with no luck. I am wondering if it even possible... I could understand HP not wanting any logo but their own to display on start-up and shutdown.

I found how to get the command line and create a new boot logo:
For the command prompt I had to Add a new "Custom" connection and type
xterm -font 10X20
Then I had to try to connect the App.

For the boot logo, it turns out that in order to create a theme you have to select an image for every field, i.e. startup, shutdown, error, etc. If you do not Splashy Manager will not create the theme and it will not give you an error message.

Thanks to those who tried to help

P.S. I am using a HP t5545 Thin Client
