Vista RTM Boot Screen for Windows XP by Neo with [Add on]


Recommended Posts

:hello: Hi everyone. :hello:

And the time has comeup when I m introducing Vista RTM boot screen for Windows XP with [Add on].

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

after making the changes

[boot loader]
[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.

Im working on a Vista RTM style logon screen...I hope you 'll get soon.

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

:) Thanks for Suggestions !

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

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.
