hi , if you want change background when system boot it is grub stuff

edit /etc/default/grub and change GRUB_BACKGROUND


and run

grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

see details here https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/GRUB_2

if you want change the animation on boot process use :

plymouth or plymouth-set-default-theme see question #7951

so you need some kernel boot parameters http://www.stlinux.com/howto/splash-screen#kcommandhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bootsplash but I think you want a custom plymount https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Plymouth#Splash_Theme google it
