The File Is 0 Bytes After Downloaded And Can Not Be When Opened With 7 Zip, WinRar Or Winzip,

Nor Can It Be Used In nLite. Which Means The File That Is Available For Download Is Invalid And Useless.

Ive Tried Mozilla firefox, Internet Explorer, And FlashGet To Download This, But It's Always 0 Bytes.

PLEASE.. Someone Upload This "Vista RTM Boot Screen Compiled by ricktendo64"

I Have Searched MSFN, WinCert, And Google But To No Avail.

Please Upload a Working Copy For Service Pack 3 Final 5512.

Thanks for this dude!!!

EDIT!!

I have since tested this using method 2 and i used makecab on the two files (after updating the resources) and put them in m I386 folder, but for some reason it decided to use the normal windows one instead.

I have tried both ways now of doing this and so far no luck either way. Any ideas?

I Believe So.. I Tried Using The Same Boot Screen For a New nLited Installation of Which The Same Boot Screen Worked Before, But After Having Included Windows XP Post-SP3 Update Pack v2.0.0, The Boot Screen No Longer Displayed The Vista Style and Went Back To Default. I'm Forced To Believe That Some Hotfix or Security Update In The Update Pack Overwrites the Custom Boot Screen. Im not sure however, But that Seems The Most Likely.

I Was Frustrated Because of This, But I Always Install "VistaMizer" After My XP Installation So I End Up With The Vista Boot Screen Anyways Plus Better Looking Icons and Such. I'd Recommend you Try That Software Out, Its Pretty Much Excellent With No Virus's or Crapware.

A Little Advanced and Off Topic But.. :D Another Cool Thing Is That If You Want you can Edit The .BMP Picture Files This Software Installs In "C:\Windows\VistaMizer\bmps\", Copy The Ones You Custom Edited To a Different Directory, Remove The Software, Reinstall It, and Quickly While Your Reinstalling Just Copy The Custom Edited Files Over The Originals While The Installer Is Working using That Same Directory, Thus Allowing you To Have Your Custom Edited Files Used Instead of VistaMizers Defaults.

Heres a link to The VistaMizer Homepage For Information If Your Curious...
