Vista pre-SP1 boot screen

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have a question that has been bothering me for a while now. Is there a way to reinstate the boot screen in Windows Vista that was available before SP1?

Credits to Vista Forums for the image.

Topic title edit: From "bootscreen" to "boot screen". My mistake.

The only time I've seen that is when you put the PC to hibernate, then swap the HDD and wake it up. I didn't ever see it at any other time of boot or installation.

What is the same? Do you get the green progressbar only? Have you selected the "NoGuiBoot" option.

The boot screen changes to the image when resuming from hibernation, starting with Service Pack 1. I have selected the /NoGuiBoot option.

I am trying to restore the pre-SP1 boot screen. :ph34r:

I googled and found users back at this time who also had the issue.

I have to search my Vista RTM x86 ISO first to get the RTM files and next I'll look at the Sp2 files.

I've checked the code for RTM and Sp2 and have no idea why Vista no longer allows you to use custom pictures. The code in OslDisplayInitialize for RTM and Sp2 does the same and tries to load the osload800x600.bmp or osload1024x768.bmp from the WIM which is includes as a resource :blink: :blink: :wacko: :wacko: :(

I am not quite sure what that meant. :unsure:
