Would be nice if you could upload a few test animations with differences in frames and size etc.

Awesome! I was just going to suggest that I comment out the few lines that clear the entry in the table but that will hopefully work too! Will test when I wake up tomorrow.

I wonder if all the fixed I tried that failed were due to this issue or something similar...

Don't you still have to patch at 421ec5to to allow the winload.exe to be unsigned? Or does your new patch work for that too?

You are probably right about winload.exe. Keep the patch at 421ec5 to be on the safe side (did not verify this, but it makes sense). The function that 421ec5 is in, is called once each time signature is bad (bootmgr + winload), and with the new patch we have reduced it to just one call (for winload.exe).

Bad news, first attempt with using your new hack + the old hack failed.

Second attempt (without clearing the certificate on winload.exe, bootres.dll and winload.exe.mui) also failed.

What could be up?

I have uploaded my bootmgr and winload.exe files at http://www.coderforlife.com/projects/win7boot/files.zip

They should have no modifications except the hacks to prevent signature checking.

By the way, using testsigning on {bootmgr} no longer works... I am becoming thoroughly confused...

Oh my, could it be easiest to just keep the old hacks then including a bogus value in the certificate table for bootmgr? I'm getting a little dizzy about all this myself. Will look into into later today.
