    What you are refering to as a Start Menu Picture is actually the User Account Picture.
    On a normal install they are located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\Default Pictures.
    They are in the BMP format, 128x128 pixels, 49,208 bytes, 24-bit color
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    you need to edit your oobe.xml and place the path to your user picture usertilepath eg: here is one for hp :

    <usertilepath>C:\ProgramData\Hewlett-Packard\HP\user.bmp</usertilepath>
