Hello Leah, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Other than it will just take longer to play at startup, I haven't noticed a size limit for the .wav file. This may be able to help.

I'm having trouble with the comands. I took some pics of what it said and I use local disk C: drive, and I replaced the "D:" with "C:" but There seemed to be something diffrent from the begging because it said "x:\windows\system32" and yours says "x:\sources" What do i need to do? this is kind of confusing for me.

Hello Leah

You would want to use D: in the command instead of C: .

Not yet, I was wonderin about this step "22. In the command prompt, type the command below and press enter. (see screenshot below)
NOTE: Substitute D in the command below with the drive letter you have listed in step 20 for your Windows 7, and substitute username in the command below with your user account name."
When it says the username does it mean the username you see when you reach the logon screen or liek the "LEAH-PC" thing?

Username would be the name for your user account in Windows 7. It's also the same name you would see for your C:\Users\(user-name) folder.
