Thanks mate, that may help.

Since i was unable to get the new beta version to work for me, i have been using the older Alpha version which does not have the Option selection.

In saying that i do have the beta version, and will check out the option selection for all the paths within.

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.
No problem mate, this has been my ultimate goal, i will be in touch when it is successful.

Happy to pass on the info.

cheers

lol about learning the new languages,

i think your best bet, would be simular to the 7-Zip self extracting archive.

it could hold the 7boot app inside the bs7 and somehow run it from within the archive, and extract itself and the resources.

oh, no effence,but could you put my full name in the about tab, Marcusj0015 you forgot the 0015 part.

or you could put in my deviantart account which is more important to me, BumbleBritches57

The old version (Alpha 8) requires testsigning to be turned on which you can't do for a new install. You must use at least version Alpha 9 which attempts to work around the testsigning requirement.

@marcusj
The problem with a 7-zip self extracting archive is it provides no method for uninstallation. If someone wants to try out the animation then try another it will complain that the files are already modified. If the want to remove it or whatever they would be lost. Also, apparently these modifications interrupt some Windows Updates so uninstallation and reinstallation may be required just to install some Windows Updates.

I will correct your handle for the next version. Sorry for the oversight.

I was unable to get Alpha 9 to work at all, on reboot it goes to startup recovery every time.

Alpha 8 is the only one that would change boot animation.

The with issue Alpha 9 seems to only shows up when you don't have the hidden partition. The default for a new install is to have that hidden partition, so it should work. I can assure you that Alpha 8 will fail when integrating it into a new install.

Windows Update supposedly fails with errors 80070643 and/or 80071A91 only with certain updater. This was reported to me by someone. I haven't experienced it.

As I said previously, I believe that NSIS would be a great way to make an installer.

You may need to explain this comment

"The with issue Alpha 9 seems to only shows up when you don't have the hidden partition"

Can you explain what i need to do to get Alpha 9 to work base on the comment above please.

I have a patch that enables you to install Windows 7 without being forced to create the hidden partition.

You need to mount boot.wim image 2 and substitute "sources\winsetup.dll"

When you boot from the dvd and you get to the "Where do you want to install Windows?"
screen, If you choose next you will get the normal partition layout with the hidden partition.
But if you click "Drive Options (advanced)" you can create a partition using the whole disk and the hidden partition will not be forced upon you. Thank To Neuropass

Thanks Mate
cheers

what that means, is if you DON'T have the hidden partition, it won't work right now, and Thaimin is trying to work out the bug and it will take some time.
