[Addon] Bootscreens for xp sp3 v5.1.2600.5657

Recommended Posts

I think the darn bootscreens need updating again with the recent M$ hotfix. Mine returned to the original XP when I had had the Blue-Grey bootskin.

Basically, new hotfix KB956841 overrides your existing ntoskrnl.exe &/or ntkrnlmp.exe (they are located in system32 folder)

If you already have an existing copy of the vista boot addon but now doesn't work because u integrate KB956841,

u can transfer the bitmap file within your existing addon to KB956841 (if you extracted KB956841 using hotfix extractor. It is in subfolder SP3QFE ;kels uber pack has it in sendto menu). I have only 2 files :ntoskrnl.exe & ntkrnlmp.exe to change. And I changed it. Tested in Vm works. U need to repack back the existing addon the same way before u unpack it.

windows 7 bootscreen looks real nice .... downloaded from the link and installed fine, but ms update KB956841 came calling after install to wipe it out

I think all new bootscreens need made with 5657 files as 5512 files will just get overwritten;

the files that KB956841 installs are 5.1.2600.5657

I have used the bitmaps from some of your earlier bootscreens and put them in 5.1.2600.5657

files from ms update...and when I install them...they work fine...and ms update no longer calls.

hope the new range u r makin fixes this ... luv the ones u have made to date :)

Is it just me or did Orbit restart them again? Seems he edited the first post and removed the current works.

Sly.gif What are you planning, you sneaky snake?

Oh, just read the first post! Quality! I thought they stunk too! HAHAHA, better than XP's default tho'

Naughty.gif Can't go wrong with the original blue-grey from 5512...
