Thank You and God Bless You All :thumbsup_anim:

p.s. U got to understand... i don't have any templates, so i'm re-creating bitmaps from scratch and the differences are expected. although it may look even better :rolleyes:

Thanks a lot for making it the best source patcher for XP.

Can you tell me how can i add Windows 7 Boot Screen to the patcher.

I mean i tried just copying the resources from here and replaced it inside the bootscr.res but the result looked horrible because the progress box looked out of place.

for more info on modifying bootsceen:

http://www.geocities.com/thejjoelc/XPbootcolors.html

http://www.thetechguide.com/howto/xpbootlogo/

but, if U want a custom-goodlooking bootscreen, your options are:

1. BootSkin

http://storage.stardock.com/files/bootskin_free.exe

2. TuneUp Utilities>WinStyler

http://www.tune-up.com/download/

(helps you to create custom boootscreen, but it saves it in a TUKernel file and changes your

boot.ini to point to it. U can save your original boot.ini priop to that. rename TUKernel to ntoskrnl and restore original boot.ini. U can use it, but if U try to import bitmaps from it, it's not going to work, since it's compiled-modified) btw, that's how it was done at http://www.askvg.com/download-windows-7-bo...for-windows-xp/

3. choose from variety of bootscreens at www.themexp.org

http://www.themexp.org/listings.php?type=b...c=&catdesc=

or

deviantART

hope it helps ;)

amnesia i always use XPtsp. I know a lot of good looking bootscreens can be found on Deviantart.

But what i am trying to get is a modified version of the bootscr.res which is found inside XPtsp.v1.1_batch\Resources\bootscr.res

Last time i edited bootscr.res to make the progress bar blue. But this time when i copy all the bitmaps of the Windows 7 bitmaps over bootscr.res's bitmaps the result looks bad. I mean the progress bar looks misplaced.

In the previous posts you have posted a lot of resources. Can you please post a edited Windows7 bootscr.res from the link i provided on my previous post.

You are asking for impossible thing, for changing bitmaps in .res file is not enough (because of kernel palette limitation and fixed position of progressbar)... unless You are using precompiled bootscreen or tools to customise it... don't You think Vishal would of post couple of bitmaps instead of pre-made kernel ? and quite honestly, sir, i for example see my bootsceen for 1 sec.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters]
"EnablePrefetcher"=dword:00000001

and i care more about getting into windows faster....

I also care about getting into windows faster. But still i am using XPtsp because i want to customize my OS as much as i can without slowing it down.

By the way thanks for clarifying about the bootscreen and the Registry entry.

Keep up the good work & have a nice day.
