I want to change my XP Propessional (32bit) bootskin. For this I have edited four files ntoskrnl.exe, ntkrnlpa.exe, ntkrnlmp.exe, ntkrpamp.exe. But my bootskin does not work properly. I have changed 1.bmp. What can I do? Please help me.

How did you edit the 4 krnl...exe files, with what bitmaps are??

How did you changed in your system?

Picture rules for .bmp are: 640 x 480 pixel, 150kb and 16 MS-colour palette, 4 bit.

Thanks for response. I have changed two images. These are 1.bmp and 5.bmp. 1.bmp is my desire picture. It is 16 colour, 640x480 size and 150 kb by photoshop.

Another one is black and it is also apporiate size and colour.I have replaced them successfuly by Resource hacker. But bootskin appears as watermark. Prevew Below is my desire picture.

Sorry my fault, the image are to small to say this!

Your colour palette is still wrong! kernel.exe exept only MS-palette!

But i don´t know how to change this with out any App!

16 MS-colour palette, 4 bit.
this is the mistake.

If you don´t want MS pal. look here Boot Screen changing at msfn-unattented.com

But i don´t know whether this still functions! It exists since 2001 or so ...

Another opportunity is with TuneUp Utilities, see this thread:

I could imagine that it still a free version gives anywhere in the net, just google around.

I found for me TuneUp Utilities 2009 portable for free in German, with just 20MB or so...

Move the Progress Bar in XP (SP2)

If you don´t wont a progressbar read this thread and scroll down.

Customize your boot screen!

Yes. I'm just looking for that you've given. I've tested and works fine. You are really great. Thanks a lot for your help.

I've another problems. If you dont mind I'm writing here. I'm trying to make a XP (Professional sp3)AIO cd with nlite. But I'm facing some problems written below.

1. My addons made by nlite addon maker are not installed automatically. So I am to install them during XP installtion. But the addon downloaded from online works fine.

2. In the 3rd session of installation setup does not parform settings (for example: Next, skip,finish etc)automatically. I want it will be parformed silently.

3. I've added cursor addon as hotfix. It is istalled silently but I can not find it default. How can I make it default cursor?
