Windows8 RTM logon for Windows7

This only works with Windows7 SP1 32bit and 64 bit
DON'T try it on another version

Correct size of userpicture, passwordfield and buttons.

Make a backup of your files before.
Learn how to remove the original language button in the left upper corner( if there is one) here[link] Thanks to :iconlee-whittington: for the hint.:)

Be careful what you are doing. I'm not responsible for any damage of your system. Don't try it if you are not an experienced user and if you have no installation disc to repair your system if somethings going wrong.

Use the background changer of your choice to change the background.

This also changes the look of your winver info as shown in the bottom picture.

Keep reading on, or die tonight a exactly
12:42. This
is based on a TRUE STORY! Once there
a baby
girl named Marry. Her mother couldn't
all the
crying, so she decided it was time for her
go. She
buried her baby alive in her back yard.
After she
buried her she could still hear Marry
So she dug her back up and stabbed her
time in the arm,
and buried her again. Marry cried harder,
but a few
hours later it stopped. At exactly 12:42,
Marry died.
She bleed to death. Now her sprite
world. When your sleeping, she stabs
you in
arm and watches you bleed to death.
that's how she got the name "Bloody
Marry" this is the true story
of her. She wants everyone to feel her
that she
felt. Apparently, if you re-post This isn't
Apparently, if you copy and paste this to
comments in the next ten minuets you
have the
best day of your life tomorrow. You will
either get kissed or asked out, if you
this chain you will
see a little dead girl in your room tonight.
In the next
53 minuets someone will say I love you
I'm sorry
to 12 other comments you will have the
best day of
your life tomorrow. But if you break this
chain you die
at exactly 12:42 tonight by Bloody Marry.
Don't believe me? You'll see not taking

PeterRollar's avatar
This is no prob.Open the image with any image editor. Select "Save as" and save it as any format you need. Time needed about 30 seconds.:)
XxdarkChaosMLG2xX's avatar
yeah, i got it btw, LOL
how do i apply this?? please tell me fast Thanks
This looks really nice!

Is there any way that we can remove the references to the domain . . . "DomainName\Username" or "Log in to: Domain Name" --- I've been trying to do this since my organization recently went through a name change and references to the old name are not desired.
PeterRollar's avatar
Sorry i cannot help you with this.:(
Even if there is a way to change the font color for those references it would be great. Please help.

I tried to apply it but when I did the passwordfield and go button's place didn't change and neither did the profile picture zoom??
PeterRollar's avatar
Tried this file five minutes ago and it works perfect. Seems you made something wrong while replacing. You know that you have to take ownership of a systemfile to replace it? I'm pretty sure you still have the original file in place.Learn how to replace this file…
Btw. This file is outdated. Newer one is…

Windows8 Blue logon for Win7 by PeterRollar
AlexMartin00323's avatar
nope I didn't do anything wrong I took the ownership of authui.dll and renamed it to authui_original.dll and did the exact thing with basebrd.dll then I changed the value of OEMbackground in the regedit from 0 to 1 and I put the background from the zip file in C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds and I renamed it to BackgroundDefault
I'm pretty sure that's it please tell me if I did anything wrong :(!?
PeterRollar's avatar
I agree, it seems you did nothing wrong. Mysterious. Why should something that works for so many people not work for you? Do you have SP1?
And can you give a screenshot of what you get?
AlexMartin00323's avatar
Dude it worked I actually don't know what happened but it just worked yesterday at night! sorry for wasting your time man it looks really great!
PeterRollar's avatar

It doesn't work for me. I installed the 64 bit version because i have a 64 bit machine. Am I supposed to install the 32 bit version as well? btw the background works, but idk where to put the user200 picture at.
PeterRollar's avatar
You can read a detailed tutorial how to use this here…
The user picture can be used as any other picture for the logon screen.
