Dual Boot 7600 RTM x64
 
 

While i have managed to get the boot animation to work, i am trying to find all the files to batch into a new OS.

What i need to know is the Director path of each file required to load in the new OS, especially Winload.exe, in which i have signature issue when booting to New OS.

I am trying to get the animation to work on new install and when loading in the New OS.

Thanks for the help

cheers

open up the boot animation app, click the options tab.

it will list all the hacked files, with the path to said files.

@xxrazor
Some of the files may be in the boot.wim. You probably need to replace the files in boot.wim entry 1 and 2, and the entry in install.wim that you want to modify. The "Options" menu lists their actual locations (Windows\...). No one has really tried to get this to work by modifying files pre-install. Please tell me how it goes since that is my eventual goal.

Thaimin, we have a problem.

someone ripped off our work (by our i mean everyone that contributed.)



link to infringing work: My7Vision.Fr - My 7 CustoBox v1.1.2.0

i don't know what you want to do about it, it is only your decision, as you wrote it.

thought i would tell you.

i would be pissed.

There are a number of works I have seen that include my EXE. Many on deviantART. This is why the current and future versions all include my information, links, yours guy's names, and the license embedded in the program, accessible in the About menu. Its not ripping off my work, it is disseminating it.

The things that I am worried about is a company like Dell using it to brand every machine they sell. That's why I am forbidding commercial use. I am working with a few companies that want to brand their machines.

I want to make an installer for those people that want to spread their designs using my software. That was there is a consistent and 'controlled' installer that uses my software. I am getting close to being able to do that, although I am working on many little bugs that are being a b**** to track down. I hoped to release awhile ago, but its taking longer than I would have hoped.

It is a bit, and I must agree that most people on deviantART do give me credit. But for those people who don't want to, the program gives me credit.

It is written in multiple languages: C, C++, C++/CLI, C# and assembly. Very convoluted. However there may be something you can help with soon. I have separated the interface from the core. The core can be in a stand-alone DLL file, with everything required to modify the system, and even load and save BS7 files.

One thing that would be great to have as a new interface is an installer. I think using NSIS would be a good way to go. Here are some of my initial thoughts on it:
  • There is an NSIS plugin to use functions in CLR (.NET) DLLs like the one I have created: Call .NET DLL methods plug-in - NSIS
  • The installer would have to have the BS7 file within it
  • It would possibly have an "Advanced Options" page to set the destination files
  • The uninstaller would restore the files
The NSIS has its own language, and I would prefer not to have to continue learning new languages...
