2.  Navigate to :
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\ LogonUI\Background 
3.  Double-click the OEMBackground DWORD key 
4.  Set value of the key to 1.

5.  Select a background image for Logon Screen with size less than 256KB in size (Use of Image Resize software like VSO Resizer can help)

7.  Rename the image to backgroundDefault.jpg
8.  Reboot, and now your logon Image would have changed.
