  1. The easiest way to change the boot logo is to add /bootlogo /noguiboot to your boot.ini file so that it looks like this:

    [boot loader]
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /bootlogo /noguiboot

    Then, save your boot image as 4bit (16-color - any 16 colors) .bmp file, name it Boot.bmp and copy it into your windows folder.

    I found this on Sysintrernals site, tried it and it works!

  2. I would like to change environment variable %ProgramFiles$ to point to a different directory than the default C:\Program Files\, since some programs can't cope with spaces in directory names (Python, for instance).

    So far I found out that I should change:

    "ProgramFilesDir"="C:\Program Files"

    I'm using nLite for my unattended CD so I thought I could extract NLITE.INF from NLITE.IN_ and add the following line:


    where "%SMWC%" stands for "Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion".

    Would that work or should I try something different? I don't want some other file changing my settings later in the installation process, but i also wouldn't like to be late and change this when C:\Program Files\ has already been created and some programs installed in it. Can somebody please help me?
