It's a little bit hard to understand where you're at. I think it's best for you to go for thaimin's AIO tool; Coder for Life - Project - Windows 7 Boot Updater It is a wonderful app that will do the necessary stuff for you, except creating the actual animation (activity.bmp).

I was looking on page 12, and found the write up on colours. But in the line <title color="XXXXRGBX"> what do I put in there for the colour gold? Gold rgb = #CD7F32? and in this line:font foreground-color="RGBI" what is I? IN Background color= "XXXX"?

About the colors in the osloader.xsl file, see the first post and post #103. As a reminder, all of the things in osloader.xsl are written using a fixed-width system font that you cannot change. These texts are for menus and errors during bootup.

The "Starting Windows" and "(c) Microsoft Corporation" texts are COMPLETELY different. That font can be changed, as I told you in the email (changing the string "\fonts\segoeui.ttf"). Their color is changed in a completely separate way. See the first post. The "Starting Windows" color is especially difficult to change manually.

And your question "is there a way reposition the animation?" has been asked and answered numerous times. If you truly have this bad of a memory and want to know all this, I suggest making yourself a document on your computer, reading the entire thread, and writing down all the important facts and post numbers.

It looks fine. It's the same as the Wikipedia article I linked to. That website is mostly about the underlying hardware implementation and calibration, way more than you need to know. All you need to know is in post #103. There are 16 possible colors for colors in osloader.xsl. This does not effect the messages you normally see.

How to Integrate?

Hey there.
I'm trying to integrate my custom boot animation in Win 7 DVD.
I used Boot Updater to change the files and replaced the install.wim ones, but setup fails right in the 1st boot telling me to restart the setup.

So... What I must do? How?
Tks!

No one knows. That is being worked on. The only way at the moment is to apply it AFTER the install.

What about reverse integration? Much like the sp1 way?
