  • Simple custom boot screen. no 3rd party software!

    All you have to do for a custom XP boot screen is create a 640X480, 16 color image and put it in you windows folder. Name it boot.bmp.

    Add the following switches to your boot definition in your boot ini file.

    /bootlogo /noguiboot

    That's it!

        Well i tried it and it did work, except that the image wasn't the image i made. It was very disstorted and only had 2 colours.

        Where was this info found?

          Just search Google for those options. There are several write-ups about it on the web. As an example, i tried it with the FP boot skin that someone posted here a few weeks back. It works fine. The only thing missing is the little scrolling rectangle thingie at the bottom. I'm not sure if the boot.ini option provides a way to reimplement that or not.

            Make sure the image is 16 colours only. I make sure of this by opening my final image in Paint(the one that comes with windows) and saving it to 16 color bitmap format.
            Photoshop bitmaps resulted in the same thing you describe.

                    At the root of your boot drive. It's hidden.
