I believe it is technically possible, I haven't tried any of the NTOSKRNL hacks, joakim and AlexYM have. However, I don't think changing that would be good (at least changing it to a higher value) since it will take much longer to load the image. I also wouldn't recommend making the animation longer or larger for the same reason.

Thanks!

I am now ready to have you start translating! Please see Coder for Life - Project - Windows 7 Boot Updater: Translation for details. There are currently 173 phrases, although about half of them are only one or two words. I may have more for you as I create the installer and boot skin sharing system, although those should be the last two things with any significant amount of text.

When you look at the document, at the moment there is a German column (de-DE), however it is filled entirely with "x". I was using it to make sure my program could actually change language.

Thank you so much for assisting!

Howdy, I was just hoping someone could give some advice, I'm trying to replace the Boot ani. and boot text. This is is fine using the Winupdate7 tools. So I have successfully replaced the winload.exe, winload.xxx.mui etc on the Windows 7 DVD and this works fine.

Iam trying to replace the winload(s) bootres.dll etc in the Wim's so that upon first boot (after first reboot) will display the Modded Boot Ani(pic). So far i have discovered that replaceing all of the winload.exe, .mui, bootres.dll etc all works fine until first(just after completing first stage of setup) reboot then displays the Old "Windows could not verify digital certificate crap", "error 00000xf <- not right".

Now i gather this is because of the the patched or modded bootmgr. So i have also tried to replace this with the patched version(in the install.wim) all goes well in the install until first reboot complains about can't prepare drive.

So is there anyway to get around replacing the files in the install.wim (and Boot.wim) and get this to work. Or should i run a script to run the Winupdate7cmd. I would very much prefer to not have to install VC libs and .net 4.

I am working on this problem. You have given some very detailed information and it will hopefully help me. I plan to have these integrated into the boot.wim / install.wim eventually for my own purposes.

In the mean time, you will need to do it with a script. You however don't really need .NET 4 and VC 2010 libs. There is a special .NET 2 version which works identically and doesn't require any extra libs. Look under the standard download links.
