Windows 8 Boot for 7

For Windows 7 x64/x86 SP1 or without SP

- Use it AT YOUR OWN RISK! because the tools still alpha at the moment and may contain bugs
- Come with resolution of 16:10 and 16:9 but only in *.bs7 file, there is no *.exe installer since some people encountered error with that installer
- *.bs7 skin needs [THIS] to apply it)
- If you've mod your bootscreen before, please restore your backup file and/or uninstall the previous bootscreen before applying
- well, then! enjoy!
- and :+fav: if you like :D


In case you get stuck forever in Windows Recovery Environment then you need to manually restore winload.exe. Here are the directions:

-Once you enter Windows Recovery Environment press "Cancel" right away (while it is still scanning)
-Click "Yes" on the warning that pops up
-Click "View advanced options for system recovery and support"
-Select your keyboard types and click "Next>"
-Select an account (not "HomeGroupUser$") and enter any necessary password and click "Ok"
-Click "Command Prompt" (the last option)
-Enter the following commands:

cd \Windows\System32
del winload.exe
ren "winload - Backup.exe" winload.exe
cd \Windows\Boot\PCAT
del bootmgr
ren "bootmgr - Backup" bootmgr

-Click "Restart"

Hi, this is really beautiful!

Can you make this animated please (maybe a soft glow for the windows logo)? Or at least, can we add some custom text to it?

When I load it in "Windows 7 Boot Updater", it only shows up as a Complete Image, and I cannot customize it. Please help.

nise work, bro
but does it also work with 1680x1050 resolution?
if so, what should I use then?
die77's avatar
1680x1050 is 16:10 so you must try the 1610 one,
but I don't know it will suits well or not since I haven't test it yet on that resolution

thanx, but I already tried both bootskins and the result was the same: I came to the boot manager, choosed windows 7 and my pc reboots (could repair it by system restore)

hmm I've tried it to some machine and most of them works very well, but some of them need more than one attempt to made it works, weird huh?
