How to Change Welcome Screen in XP CD and your system
(Unattended XP Tips)
=================================================================
Hi

windows XP uses two kinds of logon screens: welcome screen and clasic screen.

In Clasic logon,the system shows an small window box and after you enter your
password,lets you to logon to system.

In Welcom screen ,system shows agraphical page with users name ,and again
after enterring password ,lets you to logon.

Most of users are using windows defalt welcom screen.If you are tired of this
screen , iam going to tell how to change and make it as you like.

(If there were users that want to change Clasic logon too,please inform me.)

Note:Windows uses file "logonui.exe (inside system32 directory to show
wellcome screen.

==================================================================
Step_1 (Making your favorite logon screen)
==================================================================
A_ There are several ways to make logon screen file.you can do this yourself,
or can use a software to do it for you,and also you can download your
favorite from many locations in web.

I think "LogonStudio" is the only program that works perfectly and you can
use your favorite images and also favorite texts by it.

Any way i am not going to talk about making this file in this tutorial,and
just want to say how can you put your favorite logon screen in windows XP CD
and also how can use it in your system.

If you need to learn making this file ,pleas inform me to talk about later.

B_ I suppose you have made your logon screen file,and saved that by the name
of Mylogon.exe

==================================================================
Step_2 (Using your favorite logon file in your system)
==================================================================
A_ Put file you have made (Mylogon.exe) inside ...\windows\system32\ directory

B_ Open notepad and copy lines below on it,and save as Mylogon.reg
Note that you should save by extention of .REG (not .txt).when doing
this ,select "All files" in notepad.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"UIHost"="Mylogon.exe"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

note : you can down load Mylogon.reg frome attach ment insted of making it.

C_ Now run Mylogon.reg.After that if you have done as i told,work is done
and you can see the new welcome screen after restart or pressing keys
"window + L" .

==================================================================
Step_3 (Placing your favorite logon file in your XP CD)
==================================================================

A_ Rename "Mylogon.exe" to "logonui.exe",and put it in c:\

B_ Down load file "modifype.exe" from attachment,and Put it inside your
system32 directory.

C_ Go to command prompt (start/cmd enter) and type :

modifype.exe c:\logonui.exe -c

press enter,if you have done every thing OK ,command will say:
No Error occurred,have a nice day

D_ Now type command below and press enter:
makecab c:\logonui.exe

by this command,the system will make file "LOGONUI>EX_" in address below:

Documents and Settings\Administrator\

of course if the user name is for example xxxx, the fill will be produced in:
Documents and Settings\xxxx\

E_ Now you can change this file (LOGONUI>EX_) by the one in the I386 directory
of your XP CD.and burn your CD...

===============================================================================
Thats all.you can download preview of my simple logon from attachment.

have nice times

============================================================

Hi dear Komsboy more

this is nice getting notes of a young user from my country.

1.About editing boot.ini during Win XP setup I am going to send an small
tutorial in Tutorial section in a few days.

2.About Editting logonui.exe you have wrote:

"...i want do it by editing boot.ini..."

I do not think that their is a way to change Loogonui.exe by boot.ini.
boot.ini is just for boot actions and can not change logonui.

But about editting logonui.exe,as i mentioned in tutorial ,it is better
to use "logonstudio" to edite this file. I think if you download
"logonstudio" and use it you will see that you have full control on changing
images and also texts.

But if you want to do it your self,it is not so hard,but will take a lot of
time and also changing texts of screen,color and size of texts used will be
little deficult.

Any way if you want to do your self do as bellow:

1.Make two pictures,1st the picture you want to be shown in hole screen.this
picture should be BMP and you can use large picture for example 1024x768 24b.
and 2nd picture ,make BMP 137x86,24b.

2.Open Loogonui.exe by reshack and replace your 1st bmp by bitmap 100 ,and
your 2nd bmp by bitmaps 123,and 127 on reshack.and save by your favorite name.

3.Do as i talked in tutor.


Notes:

there are other pictures and other change that you can change,But 1st do as i saied
,try it,and then again open logonui.exe by reshack and change other things
that you want.
note that XP CD uses bitmap 219x207 for bitmap 100 but you can use large sizes.

changing texts in this way a little bit deficult any way you can change some
text and specification by editing String tables in reshac

have nice times

shirin

I think this should help you:
@echo off



ATTRIB  -R -S -H %systemdrive%\boot.ini



del /F /Q %systemdrive%\boot.ini



SET inifile=&#34;%systemdrive%\boot.ini&#34;



ECHO &#91;boot loader&#93; >> %inifile%

ECHO timeout=4 >> %inifile%

ECHO default=multi&#40;0&#41;disk&#40;0&#41;rdisk&#40;0&#41;partition&#40;1&#41;\WINDOWS >> %inifile%

ECHO &#91;operating systems&#93; >> %inifile%

ECHO multi&#40;0&#41;disk&#40;0&#41;rdisk&#40;0&#41;partition&#40;1&#41;\WINDOWS=&#34;XP&#34; /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer /KERNEL=kernel1.exe >> %inifile%

ECHO C&#58;\CMDCONS\BOOTSECT.DAT=&#34;HerstelConsole&#34; /cmdcons >> %inifile%



ATTRIB  +R +S +H %systemdrive%\boot.ini

These do this set attributes to boot.ini . delete the present boot.ini add a new boot.ini
and again set attributes to boot.ini and in the end displays you a command that shows press any key to continue ;) so it's like a string replacer :thumbup:.
