Windows 7 Boot Updater by Vishal-Gupta Windows 7 Boot Updater by Vishal-Gupta
!!! Please Read this before using any custom Windows 7 Boot Screen !!!

Hello everyone

I'm posting this deviant because many people have started creating custom boot screens for Windows 7 as a new tool "Windows 7 Boot Animation Updater" created by "Jeff Bush" [link] allows us to customize Windows 7 boot screen.

But the tool is very dangerous. I have posted about this tool many months back at AskVG:

Change Windows 7 Boot Screen Using Windows 7 Boot Updater

Lots of people complained about endless Recovery Console problem after using this tool.

So I have updated the above mentioned article with proper instructions which can be followed to enjoy this awesome tool without any worries.

If you want to customize Windows 7 Boot screen, don't forget to read the detailed instructions given at following link: :)

How to Change Windows 7 Boot Screen Using Windows 7 Boot Updater

This program was great until microsoft released the KB2949927 update, which did something to the winloader. The program would even give a error message stating that winloader had been changed due to a update. So now unfortunately, the program won't work and even worse, will render Windows 7 unbootable. Even rebuilding the BCD won't work. Any chance the author of the Boot Updater program can re-code his work as a work around for the problem? It would be very much appreciated, as I have no intention of migrating to Windows 8.1.

I used to use this tool all the time but on my current setup I had updated to latest windows updates and now the app crashes on startup. I wonder what update broke this program on 64 bit windows.

1. Boot up in safe mode (Press F8 during startup).
2. Open CMD (Command Prompt).
3. Type "sfc /scannow" without the " ".
4. Reboot.
5. Done.

I have a new problem with a laptop that I'm trying to do this on. I have a Samsung NC10 that I have upgraded to W 7 H.P, and fully updated. and I did the usual that I have done with several other computers. It states that the animation and text was updated successfully but when I reboot it didn't change it, it only changed it to the vista boot animation. Any clues on what to do? Would I be able to change the files from another system that have already been modified ( I have VMWare)? Thanks
daarky Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2011
Boot Updater Alpha 11 doesn't work properly with Windows update KB2506014 (can't change the winload.exe). So wait for an update.
AvernusTriad Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
It worked perfectly, but I reinstalled Win7 (x64) and since then the program doesn't start cuz it can't load winload.exe.

Any ideas plz?

i m a regular askvg reader. i have used your both win 7 boot screen updater but every time recovery console is started when i restart my window.its your fault, i have never expect it from u
StDevilHeart Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2011  Student General Artist
Obviously you are doing something wrong.I am a regular AskVG reader n have tried out the tool myself.It works seamlessly IF you follow every step in detail.
The Coder4Life website n Vishal himself points out several things necessary for the tool to work and yeah, each step IS important to be followed intricately.Messing up and blaming the creator or AskVG who merely posted about it rather earns you the status of a retard.
