I don't think it is going to work; in reverse integration you only capture the install.wim, what about patching the boot.wim files?

@RBCC
I have a command line version: http://www.coderforlife.com/projects...es/#PEChecksum

Seeing that XXXX is white and RGBX is grey it seems the first one is foreground. You can test this yourself though, and if its reversed, well, then do one more test with it the other way.

Hi. I have removed the bootres.dll file and now, windows boots using the vista boot screen. I don't want to have any kind of animation.
Would setting testsigning on help or do I have to remove vista boot screen as well? If it's the last one, where do I find it?
Thank you

I don't think that you can totally remove it, it's hardcoded somewhere...
but i'm pretty sure that you can "cheat it"...
Just use bootres.dll and make a totally Black animation

That's a shame. I really wanted to make my install dvd as small as possible. By removing that I thought maybe I'll gain some more space and kill another slow factor. Thanks for the reply claysoft.

I am using reverse integration to create a SP1 DVD, I would like to use my bootscreen before setup, Upon bootup before setup. Now should I copy the "Patched" files into my image before I make an ISO? Would this work?

I never tried on a complete setup iso, but I've done most of my tests so far on WinPE (both flatboot and wimboot). So since setup is in fact winpe, I would assume it to work. But as I said I never tried it on a complete setup iso.

Give it a try and report back. Beware of which index in boot.wim you are putting the modified files (usually 2 slightly different ones on a standard setup iso - setup and recovery).

@AlexCeed
I can't remember exactly, but believe this can be done with a patched in winload.exe. I'm too busy now and have not got time to look it up. Sorry.
