WOW nice work man.

I will try it and report back to you.

If it goes well I might include it in 7Customizer if you do not mind.

Regards

I am only a newbie but I found out a very simple method to change the boot screen, logon screen and shut down screen.

Just go to this location:

C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds

and place some custom images in jpg format with following name and resolution:

background1024x768

background1280x768

background1280x960

background1280x1024

background1360x768

background1440x900

background1600x1200

background1920x1200

backgroundDefault

If the location is not available in your w7 then make the folders, I did the same and working fine for me.

Here are mine screens:

http://www.ziddu.com/download/7781016/backgrounds.rar.html

If someone wish to use those screens.

I am not sure it is allowed to post file hosting links??????????????

If not then I request mods to please remove the link from my post.

Have a look at bsdiff and bspatch, very easy to script resource edits. Then you don't have to upload a 20MB DLL, just the patch.

:no:

Just back from a VM and my Dll method works better. I mounted and replaced all them images in the oobe\info\backgrounds. It might work if you use the xml I mentioned above.

I've updated my renamed 7background.rar available in my signature down below and with ver 6.1.6 of the Se7en_UA will eliminate 1 more of the default yuck screen's

this was my login with your methods

Ok I got the acutal problem (hopefully), I am on 32 bit and you are on 64 bit. Did you enable the OEM background functionality?????????

Run the registry editor (Win Key + R and then type regedit, press enter)

Navigate to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background , double click on key named OEMBackground and change its value to 1 (If you cannot find the path or the key go ahead and create it, remember OEMBackground is a Dword)

post-269769-1261232068_thumb.png

Now your OEM Background functionality is enabled.

Here is the registry file from my all black login screens from a few months back.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background]
"OEMBackground"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System]
"UseOEMBackground"=dword:00000001

hey there,

are you talking about the logon screen - or the boot screen?

logon screen: can be changed via registry (i think its mentioned somewehe else)

the bootscreen: are you sure this is a animated graphic (gif or something like that?)

here is stated that the animation is a simple xml file -> link:

not sure, but maybe it helps

:blushing:

Are you also replacing the copies inside the winRE.wim inside the install.wim (i.e. the recovery environment)

Here is the path from 7zip (each # is the image #) so winRE.wim Image #1

install.wim\4\Windows\System32\Recovery\winRE.wim\1\sources\

Hadn't looked at that one yet MrJinje although

I had discovered another, MountDir\Windows\System32\oobe\FirstUXRes.WIM

thats the simple animation with black screen after reboot before Setupcoplete, lot of bmps in there, hard to replace but I can do the overall black screen

kinda like that animation, wonder if it would be possible to change the default 4 color thing to this smooth FirstUXRes on every boot.

I would like to integrate my own wallpaper and my own logo on the screen Win 7 DVD.

Basically, this would be possible to replace the one directly the files on the DVD.

That I would not do this time.

Is this possible through the OEM method? (like Windows XP ?)

Where should wallpapers and logo image on the DVD are available and what needs to Setupcomplete.cmd in?

I do not want to replace the first mount and the image files.

Regard

The only way to correctly get the default wallpaper is to mount the image and replace

MountDir\Windows\Web\Wallpaper\Windows\img0.jpg

But will not change the wallpaper for each registered user ?

I think that the OEM method also works.

The Registry path for the desktop wallpaper:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

If you created on the Windows 7 DVD root following folders:

$OEM$ \ $$ \ Web \ Wallpaper

And there they seized purely his new wallpaper.

Then one writes the following in the setupcomplete.cmd:

REG ADD "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v Wallpaper /t REG_SZ /d "%systemdrive%\Windows\Web\Wallpaper\Name of Wallpaper" /f
EXIT

If not now be accepted on first login, the new wallpaper for the logged user?
