@thaimin
I cannot find the link to the bootmgr tool that you made. Do you still have it?

I'm currently updating the first post with some of the details that have been revealed during the discussions and research.

@snowcap

did you notice that he is Swedish?

they dont speak of the English in Switzerland which means that he is reading a foreign language much more difficult.

i think he did a hell of a job considering i only know a handful of foreign words.

I have that link. I was working on reorganizing the entire website for the project to work on creating a system to upload bootskins.

I have a new page that includes:
  • bmzip: the bootmgr (de)compressor
  • BootRes: breaks apart and puts together acivity.bmp (includes source)
  • MsgTableEditor: for playing around with programatically modifying message tables (includes source)
Here it is:

OK that's great. Link attached to first post. If I get the time before Christmas I will make an attempt at drawing a bmp with winload.exe with the theory you described earlier. We'll see...

A few more things:

I updated the preview of the next version. I know, just want you want a better GUI without still working... its just that it is easier to do that instead of the testing... It includes a part about the background image (the 'pro' version, can you think of a better name?), however that part is even less tested than the other stuff.

@joakim
With the the background image stuff, I have a bunch of stuff that I have thought out about it. I can email you with what I have. I have most of the assembly code which I think is necessary written out.

Also, your updated first page is very well written! And has so much good information all in one place. I added a link to the forum on my page (I should have done that before).

Sure I can do some code testing, whenever I get the time. That's great Jeff!

Will it be possible to revert back to Vista-style progress bar instead of using a Windows7 type 200x200 animation?

I would love to make this old school Microsoft Windows version 1.01 boot screen image my boot screen background. I think it would be sick with a progress bar.

That is exactly what we will be testing from now on. Basically it's about getting winload.exe to draw a bmp. But I don't think this will be solved until January, because of limited time for all parties.

Until then you can put the bmp as a resource in the kernel to get a static image displayed, just like you did on XP. But this is not nice at all..
