Windows 7: Win7bootupdater isnt working on my netbook

Win7bootupdater isnt working on my netbook

i have home premium windows 7 installed on my hp mini 200 4200 netbook (2gb ram) and ive downloaded windows boot updater so that i can change my boot up screen - text and animation to mimic alienware and match as i have a 3rd party theme alienware darkstar running.

ive loaded the alien head gif/bs7 file thing and changed the text to say alienware and it says its successfully patched/updated but when i turn on my netbook the windows logo animation is just gone and the bottom still says microsoft instead of saying "loading alienware"

is it because i have a 3rd party theme which is preventing it from displaying? im completely lost here as its working for others on youtube with the same version of windows and i dont know what im doing wrong as the tutorials of it look identical to what ive done

No its not related to third party themes.
Could you link me where you have downloaded Boot updater and boot animation.?

The Background Image

The background image is a 1024x768 full-color image. The size cannot currently be changed. It takes a moment for it to show, and the background color may be visible for a brief moment, so make sure to pick a color that is suitable.
What is the screen resolution of your notebook? Specs look to be 1024 x 600 pixels. This could well be the issue. A Guy
