Rename "Windows" / Seven

Hello,

I need to rename directory "Windows" to another name, during Seven installation.

I use with Xp, the config file Winnt.sif.

Do you know is possible ?

Thx,

Thomas

Welcome!

I don't believe that is possible. You mean the Windows folder in C:\ ? That would mess everything up, because programs look to that directory for important libraries.

Yes, I want the folder installation under another name Windows.
Before it was possible, but not anymore .. ?

I'm sorry, but that would take some considerable tweaking, both on the installation disc, and for every program you installed.
