Howdy, I was just hoping someone could give some advice, I'm trying to replace the Boot ani. and boot text. This is is fine using the Winupdate7 tools. So I have successfully replaced the winload.exe, winload.xxx.mui etc on the Windows 7 DVD and this works fine.
Iam trying to replace the winload(s) bootres.dll etc in the Wim's so that upon first boot (after first reboot) will display the Modded Boot Ani(pic). So far i have discovered that replaceing all of the winload.exe, .mui, bootres.dll etc all works fine until first(just after completing first stage of setup) reboot then displays the Old "Windows could not verify digital certificate
crap", "error 00000xf <- not right".
Now i gather this is because of the the patched or modded bootmgr. So i have also tried to replace this with the patched version(in the install.wim) all goes well in the install until first reboot complains about can't prepare drive.
So is there anyway to get around replacing the files in the install.wim (and Boot.wim) and get this to work. Or should i run a script to run the Winupdate7cmd. I would very much prefer to not have to install VC libs and .net 4.
