Glad you like it!

The GUI will be the new GUI for the old program. So yes, it will replace the old one. I have decided that the GUI is essentially complete accept I am going to add a fullscreen view so you can see how it will really look during bootup (and add the advanced screen with file locations and a restore button and enable embedded fonts).

I need to program all the hacks in and them it will be working. But I won't really have time for about a week.

To clarify, with the current version you cannot (because it requires testsigning which cannot be setup until after installation). The new version (in about a week) will hopefully be able to (pending testing, but with joakim's testing so far it seems that yes, it will work).

From what i'm reading you've been doing amazing stuff Thaimin. Keep it up!

You haven't come in too late. As soon as I make this new version I will want plenty of people testing it before I go to beta / release.

I would personally recommend waiting a week for the new version. If you use the currently version you will need to do an extra command line: bcdedit /set {bootmgr} testsigning on. It has a very low chance of preventing you from booting (and it makes backups automatically so you can restore in WinRE.

@marcus

I just uploaded a new version that has a fullscreen preview. What did you mean be "if at all possible you should a font size thing in your app also" ? Which font size? You can change the size of each message (this is really "Text Size", should I rename it?)

(There are also a bunch of other minor changes such as adding the advanced dialog, even though it doesn't actually check the files, improving the playback of the preview, making it so embedded fonts can work (although untested), and adding a progress bar dialog (although it is never shown at the moment). I have now made every dialog / UI that I need to make, so it is time to make it do something).
