Finally, I manage to upload new version 0.9.93. Check the Whatís new section.

 

10/2/2002

New version 0.9.91 is out. A must update:

<>†††† A new powerfull feature/function that can locate the palette's and progress bar's positions even for unknown/unsupported kernel versions. Until now the program had build in support for kernel versions

†††††† 5.1.2600.0, 5.1.2600.31, 5.1.2600.1106 (SP1) and

for DUAL CPU systems versions

†††††† 5.1.2600.0 and 5.1.2600.31

Now the progarm can locate all the infos for any file version automatically (on fly) with out any need to update the program.

A relative option at dialog Options.

<>†††† Now, before set a new boot screen, program will compare the version numbers of the new boot screen with the original ntoskrnl.exe file located to system32 folder. If found that versions are different (or the one is for dual cpu systems while the other not), will show a warning message.

[That way (I think) that BSOD are limited to almost 0%]

To update an old boot screen to a new (SP1) boot screen using BootEditor, do these:

1. ††† Replace the ntoskrnl.exe file inside BootEditor's folder with one new (SP1) ntoskrnl.exe file. [Do this only once]

2. ††† Run BootEditor and select the screen you want to update

3. ††† Hit the Make button.

††††††† At the dialog that appears be sure to CHECK the "First, copy a clean ntoskrnl.exe file...".†††††† [Select the other options as you want]

4.†††† Hit the Ok button


Done.

At active folder (screen) you will found 2 files.

1. ntoskrnl.exe - The new (SP1) kernel file

2. ntoskrnl.exe.bak - This is the old/original (before SP1) kernel file

Full support for kernel version 5.1.2600.1106 (SP1)

If you want to use the new kernel for SP1 (v. 5.1.2600.1106), it is good to delete the ntoskrnl.exe file inside programís folder and restart the program.

WinXP SP1

 Program is NOT compatible with SP1 yet. Probably Friday will be ready an update.
