Windows 8 Setup Background (Billboard)

9 posts in this topic

What all you'd need

1. WADK-to mount/unmount .wim files (choose only Deployment Tools & download would be <90 MB) http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30652

2. ResHack-to replace resources in .dll & .exe files (Restorator2007, ResEdit, etc. can also do the same job) http://www.angusj.com/resourcehacker/reshack_setup.exe , http://rammichael.com/downloads/Resource-Hacker-FXer.rar (it'll improve ResHack) & http://media.askvg.com/downloads/2008/10/add-open-with-resource-hacker-option.zip (it'll add ResHack in context menu of supported extensions)

3. Photoshop-to edit images (you may use whatever program you want instead)

4. Knowledge of "How to Take Ownership" or you may download any of these to add Take Ownership in right click context menu (Note2) http://media.askvg.com/downloads/2007/10/Add-Take-Ownership-Option.zip or http://www.howtogeek.com/downloads/TakeOwnership.zip)

5. GimageX (imageX with GUI-I used this one to compress my final .wim file to maximum level) http://www.autoitscript.com/cgi-bin/getfile.pl?gimagex/gimagex.zip

Mount

imagex /mountrw D:\Install.wim 1 D:\zi

imagex /mountrw D:\boot.wim 2 D:\zb2

Unmount

imagex /unmount /commit D:\zi

imagex /unmount /commit D:\zb2

Note 1 : Unmount without /commit if previous attempt to unmount couldn't finish.

Note 3 : Modify the related .mui files too.

Hey! can someone help me with changing the screen that flashes for a while when Windows 8 changes from Boot Screen to the Desired color screen we choose for Windows?..

It's the dark blue colored screen that we come across when the setup finishes & prompts us to choose color for the very 1st time..

Thanks in advance.. :)

I have no idea how you made everything transparent as bmp. files cannot be transparent. I have tried PS Gimp nothing works.

It's not a transparent image..

It's a clever piece of Photoshop skills.. :P

Basically, I used the same image for both(the dialog box and the background).. Cheers.. :)

Could you share with me the method to get the permission access to extracted install.wim and boot.wim

of Windows 10

I want to modify the files to make a Superman themed installation ISO for my personal use. I did so with Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 earlier but I don't know why I'm not able to attain access to the extracted files :-(
