Bootscreen won't Budge!!!

Recommended Posts

hey guys

i just tried customizing my bootscreen( win xp sp2)

but the bootscreen just wont change :sad:

I did it the manual way using Resource Hacker

I googled the topic, found a lot of pages showing the same thing/ technique

did all that they suggested, and came out with zero results :cry: :cry: :cry:

each time i rebooted expecting to see the custom bootscreen

i was greeted by the win xp one as if it was mocking me!!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

i checked the sys32 to find that xp created a copy of the orig ntoskrnl.exe

on every reboot :shock: :shock: :shock:

is there a walkaround to this idiotic situation???

help!!!! 

regards

What did you use, or put in place of the boot screen ? I played with this once before, but it's been some time ago. I ended up doing it in "msconfig" and just checking the box that says noguiboot, or something like that. So you get nothing.  :haha:

But obviously you want something there. So I looked around and found Bootskin , and there library of VERY cool skins.

I found this info here , since I'm not sure what, or how you tried this, this is all I have, if you get it to work, post up for the rest of us.

Or if you can't then post what's going on, and we'll see whats up.

thnx muddy and multicav for the suggestions :grin: :grin: :grin:

but the thing is I dont wanna use a software/program for this everywhere i checked it said that it is possible

to modify the ntoskrnl.exe file using resource hacker and yea mudman i alredy checked that site link which you posted

>the thing that pisses me off is:

>>I edit the 'ntoskrnl.exe' file. On reboot I finds that Xp created 'ntoskrnl_original.exe'

>>I edit the 'ntoskrnl_original.exe' file. On reboot I finds that Xp created 'ntoskrnl_original_original.exe'

This happened even after replacing the hacked files in safe mode

WTF When did Xp get so smart so as to create copies of original files that were edited??? :shock: :shock: :shock:

PS: I even edited the ntkrnlpa.exe file though i dont know wht exactly the file does expecting that to do the trick

but same shit :angry: :angry: :angry: Xp creates copies of it too!!!

it was funny in the beginning but now it's not funny anymore!!!

I spent half of my day yest behind this trying to figure it out!!! :cry2: :cry2: :cry2:

As with the rest of these "self creating" files of MS, just change the name of the file, and or the extension, see what you get, just remember what you did, because I played , and lost the boot file, then you have to re install.

oh i found the page :cheesy:

check this

hey mud can u check out a dl link for Paint Shop Pro 6

I know it's old but that's the one mentioned in the page so i wanna go wid it :angel:

thnx

See thats the right way to change your boot screen, without all the "extra baggage" of another program on your machine, specifically for this. I admire your enthusiasm :) The most you ned is resource hacker, right ?

There is a free download of paintshop pro , but check the md5 before installing. I didn't see one along side the installation, but it may be in the package in a text file. 

If thats what your looking for.
