When do you plan to include this feature into the Windows Boot Updater? I would like to update the bootscreen of my winPE 4.0 with .NET support.

I'll try to create a little fake OS with .NET GUI to backup/restore current HDD

@win7expert - First someone has to find out how to trick the installer to not complain about a modified bootmgr.

@flashdrives - Thanks!

@RBCC - I am okay, although both of my computers are currently being repaired and I am super busy (when am I not?).

Does anyone (except thiamin) know if there Protected file list? How does Windows figure out if a file is corrupt? what does it compare it to? John

I noticed that the new Windows Internals book is out , it is book one of a set of 2. The second talks about the boot process would it be better to wait for both and purchase both books at $49 or buy this one now and wait for the second one to come out? John

I have been reading about how Windows 7 Decides if a file is corrupt, it seems to compare the hash of the file in question to the original. If it is the same then it uses that file. However, if the two files are different it uses the file in winsxs and restores it. Now the the hashes are in winsxs/backup.

Are those files in file name order? Are they in Alphabetic order? How does Windows know what hash is which file?

Could someone please point to the post that shows how to control the 'speed' of the animation? How is it Sped up or slow down? can I edit this?
Mine is fast and choppy!

The speed of the animation is fixed at 15 fps. Is the default animation choppy? Then it may be due to a slow computer. If it is a custom animation, it was probably poorly designed.

Look at the files in Winsxs\Backup. The file names include multiple hashes (one for the assembly and one for the file I believe), the file name, the abbreviated assembly, and a version number.

Thiamin: My animation is too fast! Is there a way to change it to 5fps? Use the manifest file open with notepad then find the boldface part:
<file name="sysmain.dll" destinationPath="$(runtime.system32)\" sourceName="sysmain.dll" sourcePath=".\" importPath="$(build.nttree)\">
<securityDescriptor name="WRP_FILE_DEFAULT_SDDL" />
<asmv2:hash xmlns:asmv2="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v2">
<dsig:Transforms xmlns:dsig="http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#">
<dsig:Transform Algorithm="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:HashTransforms.Identity" />
</dsig:Transforms>
<dsigigestMethod xmlns:dsig="http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#" Algorithm="http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#sha256" />
<dsigigestValue xmlns:dsig="http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#">tRvVoC0gwc2Pe0MmEUwvpXq9jXUTPWzpBstl6Xqrf3A=</dsigigestValue>
</asmv2:hash>
</file>
now open your custom file and find its hash and change it to what the boldface says! given that I can't seem to find the bootres.dll file! I used what I had!
