.HTA backgrounds in WinPE

12 posts in this topic

I am trying to get a .bmp to be the background of a .HTA file in windowsPE and it is just not working. I am wondering if anyone knows a way to make this work. I don't want to have to add explorer and IE to make this work either, so if anyone knows of a way please feel free.

Here is the begining of the .hta file

<HTML>
<HEAD>
   <TITLE>WinPE Recovery and Install disc</TITLE>
   <HTA:APPLICATION
ID="oApp"
WINDOWSTATE="Normal"
BORDER="none"
INNERBORDER="Yes"
SHOWINTASKBAR="yes"
SCROLL="No"
APPLICATIONNAME="WinPE Recovery Console"
NAVIGABLE="yes">

<style type="text/css">
 TD {font-size:8pt}
 input {font-size:8pt}
 H5 {font-size:10pt; font-style:bold}
</style>
</HEAD>
<BODY BGCOLOR="000000">
<BODY BACKGROUND="file:///%systemdrive%\i386\system32\InstallBG.bmp">
<FONT COLOR="White" FACE="times">
<H2><Center>Welcome to the WinPE Installation and Recovery CD.</Center></H2>
<Center>Designed by Likuidkewl</Center>
<script language="VBscript">
Dim WshShell : Set WSHShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
Dim WshNetwork : Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Dim Fso : Set Fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

sub window_onload()
window.resizeto 640, 480
window.moveTo 112, 84
end sub

Thought this fixed it but it didn't

<HTML>
<HEAD>
   <TITLE>WinPE Recovery and Install disc</TITLE>
   <HTA:APPLICATION
ID="oApp"
WINDOWSTATE="Normal"
BORDER="none"
INNERBORDER="Yes"
SHOWINTASKBAR="yes"
SCROLL="No"
APPLICATIONNAME="WinPE Recovery Console"
NAVIGABLE="yes">

<style type="text/css">
 TD {font-size:8pt}
 input {font-size:8pt}
 H5 {font-size:10pt; font-style:bold}
</style>
</HEAD>
<BODY BGCOLOR="#000066">
<FONT COLOR="000000" FACE="times">
<H2><Center>Welcome to the WinPE Installation and Recovery CD.</Center></H2>
<Center>Designed by Likuidkewl</Center>
<script id=clientEventHandlersVBS language=vbscript>

Dim WshShell : Set WSHShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
Dim WshNetwork : Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Dim Fso : Set Fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

sub window_onload()
window.resizeto 450, 400
window.moveTo 112, 84
window.document.body.background = "file:///"+ _
                  WshShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%SystemRoot%") + _
                  "\Scripts\installbg.bmp"
end sub

sub Diskpart_onclick()
 WshShell.Run "%systemdrive%\Scripts\DiskPart.cmd"
end Sub

The whole code is not posted, due to the nature of the question asked, but if anyone wants to see it, I can post it.

Have you tried to put the background in the same dir as the htm file and use:

<BODY BGCOLOR="000000" BACKGROUND="../InstallBG.bmp">

I just tried the line below and was able to get it working, the picture was in the same folder as the hta

<BODY BACKGROUND="test.jpg">

Just out of curiosity did you use a VM or an actual cd?
