Windows 7: Need help with Windows 7 Boot Updater

Need help with Windows 7 Boot Updater

Hi, I have recently tried to install a new boot animation using the Windows 7 Boot Updater and when I restarted my computer it took me to system repair. When it restarted it had a boot animation from an older version of windows. I have restored backups of the files, bootmgr, bootres.dll, winload.exe, winresume.exe, winload.exe.mui, and winresume.exe.mui so now the normal windows 7 boot screen loads again. I really want to update my boot animation! Someone please help me!

Something must have thrown up the flag to run startup repair, perhaps it's the boot animation you're using? Some people on sites like deviantart have been making larger resolution and/or widescreen boot animations. I have not tried any of those because to me that sounds like its pushing it a little. Are you sure the boot animation is in the proper format, size, dimensions, and the correct number of frames?

Good practice there on backing everything up. I assume you have the x64 version of Boot Updater? I would try another boot animation (or a few others) which people have reported as working for them on your version of Windows in the comments, etc.

This has actually happened to me a couple of times, although quite rarely/randomly. I let it run the first couple times it happened, until I became suspicious that all Startup Repair was doing was copying the Vista boot animation over the custom one (for whatever reason). I had reapplied the same animation and rebooted with no problems on the next startup. After that, it'd happened a couple times, but I just hit cancel, and Windows loaded fine, as well as booted up without problems since. I haven't had it happen to me a long time since then, and no problems with system stability.

On my version of Windows I have had Mechanics, Diablo III, and the Umbrella Corporation boot animations from deviantart all working fine.
