To change the text with the program you must run the following command (as the website says):

bcdedit /set {bootmgr} testsigning on

We are working on this problem.

whole new bootmgr In sp1 RC
i think to make this work in SP1 we should modify the update to not incorporate bootmgr and other updates then we could use the same resources and update too

This is known. I believe AlexYM is looking at the differences in SP1 bootmgr that are relevant. Also, the way I patch is looking up targets, not by a specific offset. The functions that we are patching are pretty core and likely not to change (my research shows that they are almost identical in Vista bootmgr (SP2) and Windows 7 (SP0)) along with nearly identical functions in winload.exe.

The current version does not modify bootmgr at all, it requires the bcd entry for bootmgr to be modified.

Even if bootmgr should have changed that drastically, you could easily solve the issue by substituting it with the previous version (or an older one). Beware that unless you are native booting from vhd, you could even use the vista version to boot Windows 7. I even have an old Longhorn version from 2005 that will boot Windows 7 (however this particular version does not work in 64-bit, but that will the Vista and later ones do).

Bottom line is you can preatty much use whatever bootmgr you find to boot any nt6 system, with the few exceptions mentioned above.

Does one have to unsign then resign bootres.dll in order to make it work? Can I reposition the animation? If so how? John

You can definetely boot without testsigning, now with latest research, and you don't have to resign the files (you can even boot with bad checksum in all core files). About a repositioned animation, that should apparently work according to AlexYM's notes, but I have never tried, so I can't verify that.

You should read the latest research notes to get an understanding of how it works. It should be well explained.
