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

By:Prayag Nao

Now the wait is over. Since when Microsoft released Windows 7, no one was able to change the boot screen as it requires lots of files and certificates customization.

But now Jeff Bush @ "Coder for life" website has developed an excellent tool which can customize Windows 7 boot screen.

"Windows 7 Boot Updater" is a program that makes it easy to update the Windows 7 boot animation and text. It is written in C++/CLI and requires Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 and the Microsoft WIM library.

Features List:
  • Modifies the boot animation
  • Modifies the boot text "Starting Windows" and "Microsoft Corporation"
  • Will compile the animation from 105 BMP, PNG, GIF, or TIFF images
  • Does not require any other applications (like ImageX)
  • Designed to be idiot-proof by having numerous checks
  • Automatically backs up the modified files
  • Works for all versions of Windows 7: any language, any edition, 32-bit or 64-bit
  • Works even if your setup has the hidden "System Reserved" partition
The software is available for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.


You can change both boot screen and resume screen using this utility.

1. Download and run the program's exe file.

2. You can change the text messages, remove them completely, change their color. You can also replace animation and background image.

3. If you want to change the animation you will have to make an animation! The animation is:
  • 105 frames (if there are less frames the last frame will be repeated as necessary)
  • Each frame is 200x200px (resized if necessary)
  • 15 frames / sec
  • First 4 seconds play once then the last 3 seconds play in a loop
The program loads a folder containing all the frames as PNGs, GIFs, BMPs, TIFs, or JPEGs images. The files will be played in alphabetical order. If you are numbering them, use the same number of digits for all numbers (e.g. 001, 002, ..., 103, 105). For 'historical' reasons, the animation can also be a folder containing a single BMP named "activity.bmp" that is 200x21000px. don't want make animation you can download from internet.
