    HOWTO: Modifying "Resuming windows" hibernation screen

    After reading excellent posting about customizing text and bitmap on the "resuming windows" screen, here: Customizing the "Resuming Windows" screen, I made an extra step forward and found how to get rid of the ugly progress bar.

    This progress bar is made of characters 0xDB (full) and 0xDE (empty) from system "Terminal" font. All you need to do is:

    - Open "C:\ntldr" in binary editor (see the post above on how to do it considering attributes, safety and write protection).

    - Scroll down until you reach the area with all the text messages (it's in last 10% of the file, typically starting with "Windows could not start...").

    - From that point on - look for DB and DE hex characters (WARNING: the characters should be very close to the end of file, about 100 bytes from the end; don't let the editor to restart search from the beginning of the file)

    - Replace both characters with single space

    - Save, replace the system original "ntldr" and enjoy - you now have pure-plack resuming screen!

    If not done correctly, this is a good way to completely hose your Windoze install.
    Use extreme caution.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    It probably does. The EWF NTLDR uses the same font and displays the exact same loading bar, you probably just modified the wrong spot. It could be in a different location in the EWF file.

    Or EWF is doing what EWF does and the updated file is not getting written to the physical disk. Are you committing the changes to the protected volume?

    I've had the same issue with EWF turned off.
    After a 2 year break, I'm back! There are so many new and familiar faces here!
    New vehicle, new ideas!

    Have you guys tried modifying it before copying it over? I mean modifying the EWF NTLDR on a normal system and then copying it when you do your install.
