Windows Me boot screen
Posted 21 March 2013 - 10:41 AM
Logo files are in the install cabs, sulogo.sys for the startup one and logos.sys for the shutdown one.
I hate startup (and shutdown) logos and don't use them. (Not that anyone cares about that)

No, I presume that it works (worked) only on NON-ACPI machines (please read as AT power supply vs. ATX ones) just like the corresponding (say) XP one, which I never recall seeing until I got on this:

C:\logo.sys --> startup logo
C:\WINDOWS\logow.sys --> 'waiting for shutdown' logo (Please wait...)
C:\WINDOWS\logos.sys --> shutdown logo (It is now safe to turn off...)
A logo.sys in the root of the bootable drive will replace the default startup logo bundled with IO.SYS.
Image must be 320x400px, 256 colors (8bpp).

The shutdown is logos.sys and the wait is logow.sys
Add it to C:\Windows, i.e. add a file C:\Windows\logos.sys, this should apply:
If you should ever desire to see the original logos again, just delete the logos you've added and the originals will automatically be restored.

Are you sure it is a "valid" file?
What is the EXACT size (in bytes) of that file?
It should be a bitmap 320x400, 256 colours , exactly 129,078 bytes in size.

You say the error is in "EXPLORER.EXE" (Polish, apparently). What version does it show? Did you "modify" it?

I don't think Windows ME does the "Waiting for shutdown" logo thing. There doesn't appear to be one such logo in the install cabs and I can't recall having ever seen it in years of use of that OS so I am probably right on this one this time.
Anyway, it isn't that important , is it?
