USE AT YOUR OWN RISK
- You need the Windows 7 Boot Updater [link]
- Start the exe as administrator
-Click 'File' and 'Load boot skin...'. Than select the bs7 you've downloaded and click 'Apply'.
-If you've mod your bootscreen before, please restore your backup file and/or uninstall the previous bootscreen before applying
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:
ren "winload - Backup.exe" winload.exe
ren "bootmgr - Backup" bootmgr
