For #1, its just I have no code at the moment for modify the stub so I would prefer not to go through the effort of adding it.

I gave up optimizing the compression a long time ago.

I will tell you any problems I have, although hoping for none!

Is there a way I can use my own certificate to resign it? Where is the boot background? John

Thaimin,

you should also include a original copy of the boot flag bmp you can convert it to png if you want to save space

that way a user can just start modding and wont have to worry about how to get his original bmp out of the dll and renaming it ,wim and extracting it and all that

I already provide a separate download with the original activity.bmp and it split into pieces. I plan to keep this available.

@RBCC
Also, please read How to change boot animation in Windows 7 about the background image. There currently exists no background image. I would be injecting code into winload.exe and adding a custom resource to bootres.dll.

@win7expert
Very nice animation! I really like it! I'm very glad to see some nice animations being made

@joakim
I am having a problem... but maybe it is with something else, however if you could verify that this works, that would be great. I have uploaded my modified bootmgr to http://www.coderforlife.com/projects...ot/bootmgr.zip

Can you test it and see if it works? If it does work then something else is the problem with my program and I will have to figure that out.

It is strange but it seems that the lack of values for the Certificate Table in data directories have caused the error. I just entered some values and now it booted fine with the one you uploaded.

I suspect that we need to implement one of the other signature patches to get rid of this requirement. If you want I can verify that, but will need a few days as I'm busy with other stuff in life right now.

Joakim

Update:
I just tried the other patches and they all require a bogus value in the Certificate Table (ie, it cannot be empty with current patches).

He he, I just got a few minutes anyway, and found the solution. To boot with erased certificate table we must patch at va 40122c. Change e809300000 -> 90909033c0. Basically we don't call the function that verifies its self integrity, but merely nop it out and xor the eax register with itself to fullfill the check right after. You don't have to patch at va 421ec5 then. I think this is a better solution.
