You may add bitmap background to the boot screen of Grub2. Simple way to do this:
- go to the file /etc/default/grub
- add line GRUB_BACKGROUND=<image-path-and-filename>
- run update-grub
You can use tga, png and jpeg (8-bit) images. Image color mode shall be RGB (or it will not display).
If you want, you may install default Grub2 backgrounds collection by running command
sudo apt-get install grub2-splashimages
Its image files are stored in /usr/share/images/grub.
