@win7expert
My tools become part of my program. Testing the tools will accelerate testing the real program.

@marcusj0015
Thanks for the defense!

@RBCC
You will be told. Don't worry.

@Bohne
The current Alpha 8 doesn't support testsigning being off. Next version will.

@jacobf16
What was the problem you had opening files? I would like to fix it for the next version.
If you change the text and do not run:
Code:
bcdedit /set {bootmgr} testsigning on
Like it says on the website, it will crash. Please read.
I read that and i even used that, but it don't work :s
and the error was that the program must be closed.
I solved it by set the compatibility to vista.
oh, and i can't download the certificate on that site

You cannot change the "Starting Windows" text easily with the current version. With testsigning on for {current} and {bootmgr} the current version should be able to change animation and copyright text.

You do not need to download the certificate, it is included in the program (which installs it). It is only provided for use on other computers. It seems that you have to right-click and save it that way, the server thinks it should be a text file... The new version won't require any certificates or testsigning.

The error you are getting is very strange, and no one else has reported that. It may inadvertently be fixed in the new version. When I release the new version please test it out and report back to me. If it isn't fixed I will need to work with you to fix it.

Is the alpha 9 going to allow pictures for the background? How many colours? John

Background pictures is currently completely hypothetical. I have written assembly code to do it, however it has not been at all tested. It is likely to need some fixes from what I wrote since I don't know what I am really doing. On the other hand I have built a lot of the framework for it in the program, once I get around to actually testing. Additionally, I have not even begun to think about translating it into 64-bit assembly.

One thing I can tell you though is that when it is working (if I and/or joakim get it to work) then it will support 24-bit images. So full-color or 16,777,216 colors. In fact I have no idea at all how I would do anything besides 24-bit images since the built-in code in winload.exe seems to only draw 24-bit images. My program already converts many image formats to the proper 24-bit image necessary.

I am also very busy at the moment and haven't started testing the code yet. Realistically, support for background images will not happen this year. When I get the time, I will first study the code and implement it in winload.exe. Then lots of testing, tracing and rewriting of code will be required. I'm not sure either, how this will end. But I will give some feedback when I've found anything useful on the topic.

No, it won't be. However you will be able to see what it looks like it in the program and create the bootskins, but not actually apply.

The progamm alpha 9 is currently only a preview. But if thaimin release the 0.0.0.9 Beta (/Alpha) it will be possible to apply a custom bootskin, I think.

In the preview, you can only create new bootscreens but you can't apply them.

I hope, what I write was not wrong

Several Utilities turn on and off the Windows 7 watermark, is this the problem with NToskrnl.EXE? jOHN

The watermark is just something that is generated based on the TESTSIGNING configuration in the BCD store. As already discussed, there are several ways to prevent that from being present on your desktop;

1. You actually don't need TESTSIGNING at all (see first post patching instructions).
2. Put TESTSIGNING on, but remove the watermark (see first post for patching instructions).
3. A few other mixed derivatives of the above (see first post and the rest of the thread).

To keep it simpel, stick to either 1 or 2.
