I have been building a WinPE image to use at work for various tasks. I have pretty much all the tools set up the way I want it, but I wanted to change the boot animation so that me (or another user) could tell that it was booting PE and not Windows 7.

I found a tool on the net called Win7BootUpdater.exe. With that tool I was able to change the Boot logo, the color of the text and the Copyright text at the bottom. But I cannot seem to change the "Starting Windows" string. According to the tool I changed it to "Loading Toolkit", then I used Resource Hacker and opened Windows\System32\winload.exe and saw that the last string was changed to "Loading Toolkit" but when it boots it still shows "Starting Windows". Does WinPE use a different file to control that text? If so, where might I look to find it?

Thanks
~Mike

Nevermind, I figured it out... There was another winload.exe.mui that I didnt see. It was located in Windows\System32\Boot\en-US

I just copied the modified winload.exe.mui that I had to that location.

I use Win7BootUpdater.exe also, great program.
I,ve created USB and hard drive based recovery partitions.
NOT packed to wim.
Use bootice and modify your bcd file.
Check this info field Boot file:
change from: \windows\system32\boot\winload.exe
To: \windows\system32\winload.exe
