Because the software doesn't modify the kernel which is what determines the size, position, and number of frames for the animation.

@selyb The values I modify only pertain to other boot files (boot drivers, winload, required MUIs). Ntoskrnl is a completely different beast. Besides being checked by winload it probably also checks itself, continuously (patch guard). Thus the only way is probably to just use testsigning and then you can patch a file to remove the watermark.

I don't use IDA to modify any of the files, only to investigate. I use a hexeditor to do modifications.

So Thaimin, have you been working on this lately? Like, changing the size of the animation ?

I know I'm not thaimin, but we did some testing on this earlier on. And did not manage to change the size of the animation/frames. If thaimin have found new stuff lately, I would be happy to know the details.

AlexYM successfully changed the size and location of the animation, however it requires modifying ntoskrnl which would open your computer up to all sorts of malicious stuff. I was working on a method of doing it in-memory to reduce security risks. However I haven't had time for this recently.

How about working on a unattended installation or Reverse Integration? John

In reverse integration you can integrate the custom boot animation only in install.wim. What about the boot.wim?

Then maybe thaimin or AlexYM would quickly describe what instructions to change and how. I knew about the positioning, but was thinking about the size-part.

I'm glad there are still people thinking about this. I was wondering if movie duration would be tweakable somehow too?

@Cooperdale
One day it will hopefully be. Along with position, framerate, loop point, and size (if that was actually successful).

@RBCC / @niceguy
I haven't figured this out yet either.
