Change Windows 7 Boot Screen
Posted 27 July 2011 - 06:04 PM
With this tool you can change the windows boot Screen (not the log-in)
It could work with Win 7 PE too
I have not tested it for now...

Respect Joakim for your work
But Jeff Bush is the actual developer of that great application and deserves all credit for that. I've just contributed with discussions, research and lots of testing..

Thanks for being a part of development of this GREAT app
I have a problem thou
Just spent 2 Hours Making the Boot screen(animated),i will upload it L8R
Installed it and it gives me a "boot Image corrupted" error
I'm running Win 7 Ultimate x64 (No SP)
Dose if fail because of the "No SP" or because its x64
I have never formatted my PC since i got Win 7 (I have no problems with is so far)
And I do not do Automatic updates as well (That PC is not Online)
Must i have SP1?
(Oh And the boot is restored to normal)

His username is thaimin and he is really cool and helpful. I am confident he will know what the problem is and will guide you right away. Just post your OS specifics and file versions (bootmgr, bootres.dll, winload.exe). Without me knowing exactly, I would guess 1 of the binaries where already modified beforehand..
(I am not really part of any development team there though)

(Assumed that you have the win7 dvd extracted to c:win7_32)
1. Download Win7BootUpdater.exe
2. Copy imagex.exe from WAIK
3. Create a folder to mount boot.wim (ex: c:mount)
3. Run cmd.exe. Change to the folder that imagex is located.
4. type: imagex /mountrw c:win7_32sourcesboot.wim 2 c:mount
5. Run Win7BootUpdater.exe
6. Options > Select 'Windows' folder
7. Select "c:mountwindows" (Ignore error)
8. Make the changes to the image (the background color at least doesn't work)
9. Click apply
10. Run cmd.exe. Change to the folder that imagex is located.
11. imagex.exe /unmount c:mount /commit
12. Copy the boot.wim file to c:win7_32sourcesboot.wim (you may back up the previous file just in case)
After this, I run WB as normal and the result is your custom boot screen!

Im trying to make a script for this but i cannot get it to work!
Some help is needed:
Are you using the "full app" or the command line version?
This is the actual homepage of th ethingy:
(maybe the issue is with the installer )
JFYI, the Author Jeff Bush is a member of reboot.pro with the nick of coderforlife:

Its using both the GUI and command Line version
The GUI is accessed via A button,then you must save the BS7 file
Thare is a inputbox to select the saved file that gets handed over to the CMD version
It seems that the bootMGR file gets incorrectly modified by the CMD at least for Win7_PESE
So i think i need to backup the bootmgr file created by winbuilder and move it back after the CMD has done its work
So the only files that gets modified is bootres.dll,winload.exe and winresume.exe (the mui files are not Included by winbuilder so thy are probably not needed)
warning the linked file above may edit your actual windows Bootmgr file causing it to fail to boot(found out this morning)
Just delete the edited bootmgr and load the backup from bootmgr.1

it seems to me their may be a bug in the CMD version :
this command Crashes
Win7BootUpdater.exe [.bs7file] /Windows [WindowsFolder]
This Command Dose Not Edit Bootres.dll if you do not have a animation/ still
Win7BootUpdater.exe [.bs7file] /Bootres [File] /Winload [File] /WinloadMUI [File] /Winresume [File] /WinresumeMUI [File] /Bootmngr
