I see that. I'm just pointing out that it's not just grub2 in wubi. If
you want to set the splash screen, then try the instructions in link
that I already provided to grub2. Those /may/ work... or they /may/
screw up your system worse - I honestly don't know. Either way, you now
have information regarding grub2 and wubi.
