I've removed and am updating my 7backgrounds stuff but that was the spwizimg.dll which I updated in

MountDir & "\Windows\System32\

64 also get this

MountDir & "\Windows\SysWOW64\

Has to be done correctly I finally figured out. I no longer see any of that MS image in the background. :thumbup no more of that image

But you are mount the boot.wim and then you changed there the spwizimg.dll ? But i can`t found the spwizimg.dll in Windows\System32 or SysWOW64 ?

I thought we must only chnaged the spwizimg.dll when i mount the boot.wim ?

Now we must also mount the install.wim and there we must changed the spwizimg.dll and the imagers.dll ?

Like I told Max, to change the image after the first reboot, you need to edit the install.wim spwizimg.dll copy. The boot.wim spwizimg.dll (and DVD\sources\spwizimg.dll for that matter) are only used for the initial boot, when installing from DVD or via setup.exe respectively. Everything after the first reboot is contained inside install.wim. That is why you have to change it in multiple places, because Microsoft included multiple copies in the installation process.

It's more like you have to customize two OS'es to fully control the process. The Boot.WIM is actually a self contained Windows PE OS, but it only controls the installation process up until the first reboot. After reboot, the boot.wim hands off to the spwizimg.dll inside the install.wim (now on the HDD), and the HDD controls the process from first reboot to first login.

Now only a little tip of me, how to change the user picture on the logon screen.

mount the install.wim an search for the file " user.bmp " . this ist the standard user picture of windows 7. Now overwrite this bmp-file with your own.

important:

your new user picture must have an resolution of 128x128 and 24bit an must be an bmb file. Also this new user picture must have the name " user-bmp" . When you have replaced the original you have your own new user picture on the logon screen after windows 7 installation. I have also saved the original with the name of user1.bmp.

Here the result:

Userpicture1.jpg

Userpicture3.jpg

your right beatmaster

I been doing that with my program since Se7en_UA.exe 6.1.5: December 14, 2009, 11:34:44 AM

and if you replace the MountDir & "\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\Default Pictures\usertile0.bmp with same .bmp it will make that the default picture instead of the flower

beatmaster

winsxs I've been looking at that folder for quite some time

is like the backup location of everything in 7/Vista. If you inject drivers it usually creates a folder there with the drivers you injected but with the funny name's you see there. Can grow quite big even updating drivers

I already get all them things you say and copy over to the name I found in them locations

Like img0.jpg is the default wallpaper, if it' in another location like you said uxwizard-clientimages then thats a backup to the main located elsewhere

My quest was to replace the default background's on a setup and I have done that completely. I didn't care for the 'MS powder puff background' so I looked at every image and replaced it minus the PE Mrjinge has said several times. I'll leave that alone for now as that would require replacing another .wim, and I never had to do that.

An d i have also the same problem. (sorry for my english)

I have edit:

- DVD sources\spwizimg.dll 517 and 518

- DVD sources\boot.wim\sources\spwizimg.dll 517 and 518

- DVD sources\background_cli.bmp

- DVD sources\boot.wim\sources\background.bmp (here i can find only a backround.bmp not a backround_cli.bmp)

And the same problem like Olive89 and Adadu.

beatmaster

You need also make others modifications:

When you mount "boot.wim 2" for Windows, change the images setup.bmp and winpe.bmp inside "Windows\system32" by yours owns with the same size and the same name and the same image you've changed inside "spwizimg.dll" (517 - 518), also into: sources\background.bmp.

Then unmount and commit boot.wim 2.

You need to take full control for the file and these images.

You can use another image for the logon screen (start and shutdown session) and change images 5031 to 5043 inside "imageres.dll" after mountrw install.wim 5 (Windows Ultimate)!

For edit "spwizimg.dll" I use XN Resource, because Reshack don't work:

And for edit "imageres.dll", I use Reshack, because XN Resource don't work!

I hope that will help you.

How to edit boot.wim file?

You would require WAIK, mount the boot.wim and then edit the required dll.

No need for WAIK. f you are running Win 7 then this is all that is needed to mount boot.wim

Thanks mate, I forgot.

But DISM works slower than imagex, I rather like to use WAIK for Vista it's really lightening fast.
