The boot screen package is self-extracting archieve.

There are two option to install the Vista RTM Boot Screen.

(1) By editing boot.ini

Rename file into 8.3 filename format lets say VBoot.exe and Copy VBoot.exe into C:\Windows\System32 folder and edit the boot.ini

The Default Boot.ini look like this, add /Kernel=<bootscreen.exe> switch

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS=."Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /FASTDETECT

after making the changes


[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /FASTDETECT /Kernel=VBoot.exe

(2) Change the resource of origianl bootscreen.
The Boot screen archieve is also contains a resource file named VistaBoot.res.
U can change the resources of original boot screen using ResHacker manually.

Open ntoskrnl.exe [Under C:\Windows\system32 ] in ResHacker.
Click on Action Menu -> Update All Resouces ...
Locate the VistaBoot.res file under Open Dialog Box and click on Open.
A message box will be appeared "11 resource items updated." Now save and replace the existing one.

NOTE : If U are working on multiuser system. Re-perform 2nd method with ntkrnlpa.exe having in same folder.

Hey tried both the methods, doesnt seem to work.
1) copied to system32 and then edited boot.ini using the control panel\system\Advanced\Startup and Recovery.

2) Used Res Hacker and saved ntoskrnl.exe over the original.

Is there any other way, or is there a missing step, do we need to copy that above picture to any location.

If you edit ntoskrnl you don't need to edit the boot.ini

the 1st option with editing boot.ini works only if you rename VistaBoot.exe into 8.3 filename format, ie. vistboot.exe,
and boot.ini should look like this
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /FASTDETECT /Kernel=vistboot.exe

does anybody here try to slipstreaming the modified ntkrnlpa.exe and ntoskrnl.exe?
i try to mod and slip inside my cd ... but after winxp installation... both of those file are replace by original ver of it... weird...
any expert have any idea?

by reading http://unattended.ms...xp/view/web/51/

i found out my windows will use NTKRNLMP.EX_ to be ntoskrnl.exe with same file size...
so i assume my windows detected dual core and use the multi processor file as the ntoskrnl.exe
just hope it works and maybe it helps someone having same issue as me.... =)

this direct modding consider fail ... because i success to change and use in dual core system... but my cd won't install well on single core system..
it hangs at 34 minutes installing device .... known problem with ntoskrnl.exe
i quit modding it

neo, thanks a lot for the boot ;)

I think that method 1 is better because it doesn't modify any system file.
Method 2 works fine as well but you have to re-do it every time WindowsUpdate replace ntoskrnl.exe with a newer version.

two little requests:

1) Is it possible to create an installer to automatize the method 1?
I mean something that rename the kernel to VBoot.exe, move it to System32 folder and add the switch to Boot.ini

2) Is it possible to have an n-lite addon (always with method 1 if possible) to integrate it in our Windows CD?


Thanks a lot in advance ;)

Here is another Method

  • Extract BootEditor.rar
  • Open BootEditor
  • Click Add

  • Click on Vista from the bootscreens list [There may show some errors like file missing or palette error.., just press yes or ok to continue].

Posted Image

  • Click on Make button, check the checkboxes

  • After that press OK..Those dialogs you can understand...Restart & select OS for testing new boot screen from the bootmenu..
  • Later you can edit c:\boot.ini as how u wish to show your bootmenu..
NOTE: MAKE BACKUP OF BOOT.INI

Thanks Neo :)

I already tried this add-on before and it works fine but it uses method 2... this is why I was asking for an installer for version 1 :D

Very happy to know that :)

If I can give you some suggestions:

- Please create a logon screen without text on it (I'd like to have it neutral so I can use on XP, Vista, etc.)

- Please create it based on black Vista logon screen (I mean the one with black background)

- If it's possible, I'd like to have also logout and shutdown screens that match same theme :D

thanks a lot in advance

Thank you for listening :)

BTW, Microsoft just released a new hotfix for kernel to address a problem with the hibernate feature

The fix is kb944092

Maybe you should update your vboot.exe (this also can be the time to rename it to vboot.exe to avoid not 8.3 filename problem) :D
