Boot animation

16 posts in this topic

hey there,

I properly replaced the boot animation and texts with used Win7BootUpdater. Everything's working great, so now I need to replace the ISO files with the customized System32\bootres.dll and System32\winload.exe.

Bootres.dll can be easily replaced, but everytime I try to replace winload.exe I get a 0x8007080 error.

How to solve this issue?

Are those 2 files enough to make the boot work properly?

tks!

Windows is silly. Even though you are working in a System32 folder that is NOT the one for your OS (mounted WIMs do this too) Windows will still protect files in there against changing. Annoying huh? You can try to attrib -s -h on winload.exe, replace it and then attrib +s +h.

Don't waste your time I don't think it is going to work. I have tried number of method but none of them is working till now.

You can't change boot animation in pre-install.

Wow Thanks,

Have you tested it? I guess the commands are in Spanish, never mind I would translate it; BTW what is "Selecionar pasta" in the script?

If I got it correctly you have put the animation file in "C:\Appz\Boot"

If you can explain a little bit about this script that would be very helpful for people like me who doesn't know much about the autoit scripts.

Thanks in advance

I've tested in VMWare.

Its in Portuguese.

Selecionar pasta = select folder

The boot animation, boot and resume background r on C:\Appz\boot, as well as win 7 boot loader

The mouse coords r for Windows classic mode

The script loads the animation, boot background (background.bmp) and the resume one from the folder above, applies the changes and closes the soft when it's done.

Do a step by step run with Scite to see what do what. It's a pretty simple script

Tell me if u need some help

Thanks mate,

I was also thinking that it can be done with autoit but I don't have the expertise to write a proper script for this, you really done a great job mate. I would get back to you once I would try it in vmware. Would you mind if I PM you?

Thanks again mate, Will you please post screenshot of your "boot" folder where you have put all your stuffs? I presume that there should be only one folder named "Animation Information" in which you must have put your 105 bmps.

After all "A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words", lol.

I hope you understand.

In the boot folder there's only 4 files: activity.bmp, background.jpg, resume.jpg and Win7BootUpdate.exe

"Animation Information" is a Win 7 Boot Updater button, not a folder name

The whole animation is one the 200x21000 activity.bmp file

Here's the most complete guide I found: How to change boot animation in Windows 7
