HX DOS-Extender is a free DOS extender with built-in Win32 PE file format support. Usually the purpose of a DOS extender is to make protected-mode features available for DOS applications. HX fully supports this goal, but goes some steps further. A Win32 API emulation layer is part of HX which allows many Win32 console applications to run in DOS. This emulation goes far beyond similiar approaches in other extenders (Borland's PowerPack, WDOSX or Phar Lab TNT). Furthermore HX implements - limited - support for windows, DirectDraw, GDI and even OpenGL graphics. This allows to run "simple" Win32 GUI apps in DOS as well.

Hello, emiel, I see that you are new, so welcome :P .

Please take your time browsing the forums and searching them, we already know HX DOS quite well, and Nuno already used it in some projects.

imagine a short mpeg movie animation as bootlogo
this is possible.. just have to start a dos media player before windows load ntoskrnl.exe and bootvid.dll then disable the default bootscreen.

there it is.. animated bootscreen in truecolor :P)

Except that DOS != Windows Boot. If you load DOS at boot, then you cannot get into Windows XP without running GRUB4DOS, which will wipe the memory upon boot.
