Is there an easy way to use themes and boot screens made for XP SP1 on SP2? Or am I thinking wrong and this question is just for boot screens?

Is there a patch that allows any theme from any service pack?
Is there a program that will convert an SP1 theme to an SP2 theme?

there is no difference in the themes. Run UxStyle service to patch the Uxtheme files in Memory.

bootscreens are problematically because they change the NT kernel file.

Thanks Magic! I have some XP SP1 boot screens, such as "Windows XP Lame Edition", which shows a snail as the logo. I don't know how to make the boot screens, so I was hoping for something easy to convert XP SP1 to SP2 boot screens. If I find some time I'll learn how to do it manually. Or... HA!

open it with Anolis.resourcer and extract the picture and replace the bitmap from your XP Sp3 Kernel.
