$OEM$ Win 8

2 posts in this topic

What I've done so far with success using $OEM$ to replace and not having to get permission on files

I am running 8 in a VM so my results may be different than an actual install. let us know

DVD\sources\$OEM$\$1\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures
replace all pictures in that folder with same size
user.bmp is also found in MountDir\Windows\WinSxS\amd64_microsoft-windows-usertiles-client_31bf3856ad364e35_6.2.9200.16384_none_825f8ac8a2b29ff7\user.bmp

Depending on your version or language the numbers after _none_ may be different. I checked a French release dvd and it is same

Windows\Web\Screen\img100.png is Default LockScreen image. the cartoon looking tower
add DVD\sources\$OEM$\$$\Web\Screen\img100.png through img105 1920x1200 image
You can change that one and all the rest if you want then you are able to swap it in Settings on right mouse sweep.
At bottom 'Change PC settings' and it comes up on lock screen. Small image there will still be the default but it loads your img100.png
Now each time you change the resolution it will use your pic.

for small image haven't found out which dll to hack yet but I did see them somewhere but have to find again

EDIT: Windows.UI.Immersive.dll contains the small images

After watching that FirstLogon Animimation 1 time I thought that is enough. :lol:

You can hit Alt+F4 together to kill it but you get a black screen and don't know what is happening for the 7 minutes or more it run's

You can replace it


I create a new file. Edit h2 for what you want

<!DOCTYPE html>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<style type="text/css">
body {
color: #fff;
background-color: #00008B;
<h2 align="center"><font color="#FFFFFF">FirstLogonAnim.html running. Listen to some music</font></h2>

I have a page with an svg data:image/jpeg;base64 image on it but unable yet to make it work

setup.bmp is first image you see
