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

<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">

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