Thank you all for testing! Here is a list I have put together based on what people have said:
  • Works
    • x64 Home Premium English (no updates)
    • x64 Home Premium German
    • x86 Professional English
    • x86 Professional Italian
    • x86 Ultimate English (no updates)
    • x86 Ultimate English
    • x64 Ultimate English
  • Fails to 'Apply'
    • x64 German (SP1 BETA)
  • Startup repair
    • x64 Professional English (7600.16385)
    • x86 Ultimate English
    • x64 Ultimate
  • Just 'not working' (PLEASE BE MORE DESCRIPTIVE!)
    • x64 Hungarian (SP1)
    • SP 1 RC1
So the trend here is that 32-bit is less sensitive (and less popular). Also, at the moment no hope for anyone running any version of SP1... I am getting the SP1 files now so I will check out why this is. I will update the above list as more reports come in.

On another note my website is running so I am taking down the temporary files. You can get the files at:

Coder for Life - Project - Windows 7 Boot Updater

On another note, I fixed the x64 problem with text 2 color.

Windows Professional x86 Italian language, works like a charm.

I had the files modified from the previous version, what I did was remove testsigning, reboot, restore backups, reboot and then proceed with the changes.

Thanks for this work of art!

@rockyp

My guess is that one of the Windows Updates changes one of the files I need to modify. I will have to research it and see what can be done. There is no solution at the moment.

How are you setting the image? What is your original picture type / size? Or are you using a folder of images? If using a folder, what types of images (BMP, PNG, ...)? Does the preview look fine?
