for those of you wanting to change building file list, formatting and all that other crap text open up usetup.exe in i386 folder, search the bottom, that is where nearly all the text is for it.

what i do is open it up and do a search for the text i want to change(not got round to doing it yet)

ive gone thru all this 14 pages browsing for a solution to my problembut cant find any

hi !!

u..now i am a novice and i am dealing with dll s for the first time ... i have made the winntbbu.dll and viewed it in jcarle view its looking good. i have also conveerted into winntbbu.dl_ because i noticed the increase in kb in the file (dl_) when i cabbed the new one.

Problem :: how do i put it in the i386 folder on the windows xpcd

I got a first edition windows xp pro cd

I tried openig the cd in windows explorer going to the i386 folder removing read only attributes and copying the files to that folder.. it say its replaced..but when i do a search in that folder i cant find that file(winntbbu.ddl or winntbbu.dl_ )

Also soon as i remove read only attributein the windows xp cd i386 folder and check back again the read only attribute ia already enabled again??

From what i read here that is what i gathered that we can make a windows personalised xp install cd.. so wher i am going wrong.. Help please..

ps:: also checked i386 folder there is only some winntbba and another winntbbu.dll

but then i have tried replacing a those winnt files a couple of times!! so maybe original files have been changed

Also does the customised image comes up soon as the windows xp screen is started..beacuse all i can see is the original blue one??

Thanks

Thank you very much for the tutorial. The information comes in very handy when I create custom OEM XP installs for my home computers. I have also found your other guide very useful as well, thank you. :w00t::w00t:

Hey guys,

Maybe I just missed it somewhere, but has anyone figured out yet how to change the fontcolor in the winntbbu.dll (or dl_ ) file? :blushing:

I've been trying to replace some numbers by other numbers by my text remained white (in fact I didn't notice any other changes either) :blink:

Hopefully someone can help me out here.

Greetz to all :hello:

Maybe other people are having problems with that tool as well. I got an error saying it's no valid win-32 app. (maybe file corrupt?)

It was a great lead though, with a bit more research I managed to do it manually.

Thx again!

Does anyone know how to modify the setupldr.bin so the textmode screens are green instead of blue. I have heard you can't, if not why not? John

Try setting up a 1x1 bmp for it, it should work.

BTW, anyone knows how to make some of the BMPs on the winntbbu have transparencies?
