    Change the sound? In what way? Make it louder, make it softer, turn it off all together?

    There are several utilities that can control the sound. You can find them by doing a google search.

    Try this LINK

    And newer models do not have the boot sound at all.
    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    No way to change the sound to a more attractive sound or melody. It's either on or off.
