Open your settings.cfg, and under [GUI], paste stretch menu background = true. It will not fit your entire screen, and you can use a widescreen HD menu replacer of your choosing.

Note that it'll only work correctly if your screen/window has the same aspect ratio as the image. If they're different, the image will be stretched horizontally or vertically to fill the background. A proper fix would be for the engine to scale the image while maintaining its aspect ratio, which it can't currently do.

It's not that it can't do it but that the image's physical aspect ratio can be arbitrary. For vanilla it's 2:1 even though the content is 4:3. It'll look very wrong if openmw tries to be smart with the scaling.
