The WLAN connection is often lost after a few hours if inactive. Just adding a regular PING seems to fix this, but let's still check the PING result and reconnect if necessary.

HackBGRT on WinPE

You can replace any .efi file with HackBGRT.efi (remember backup!) and then point the boot= option to the original .efi file, so technically it should work just as well (assuming that WinPE shows the logo from UEFI).

HackBGRT on WinPE

Hello I would like to change the boot logo of the Windows 10 installtion environment. I tried to do it manually, but there is no bootmgfw.efi, only cdboot and cdboot_noprompt.efi in the efi\microsoft\boot subfolder of the Windows 10 iso. I tried modifying bootres.dll but it resuled in a black boot screen. So i don't know what to do.

Let's Assume The Worst Case Scenario

Sorry if this has already been covered, but I have a question.

Let's assume that I enable HackBGRT to have my own custom logo, and I have Secure Boot enabled, then obviously the computer is not going to start up, and will say a message that it cannot boot. Now let's say that I disable Secure Boot, and I happen to get that same exact message, this would imply that the computer is completely unbootable anymore.

Let's say this scenario happens, how would I be able to repair the original Windows boot settings?

(After every big Windows update, the boot sector seems to go back to the default uncustomized boot logo, and I would have to re-enable HackBGRT. But before enabling HackBGRT, my heart skips a beat thinking of the possibility that the computer won't be able to boot up if I use HackBGRT to re-enable my custom logo.)

Thanks.

You would boot from Windows installation media (repair partition / USB / etc.) and run Startup Repair, probably.

Uninstalling Secure Boot Question

You cannot have both HackBGRT and Secure Boot enabled. It's not actually disabled to allow installing, it's disabled to allow use.

I can't really (efficiently) help with issues with some specific laptop without having access to that laptop. It requires some hands-on debugging.

Boot File Reverting

I'm sure it says something else before that, either "Boot path not specified" or "Failed to load application <some_path_here>".

What are the dimensions and location of the loading circle for the splash screen in Windows 11? Display is 2240x1400

I want to incorporate it into my splash screen design somehow. Also, is there any reason I shouldn't be using a full size image, i.e. 2240x1400?

I don't know the position of the spinner, and it has really nothing to do with this software. It's easy to find out, just create an image with easily countable pattern (such as the XOR texture) and take a picture during boot.

As for the resolution, just remember that the resolution is sometimes lower during boot. Also, some people have reported problems with big files.

how to animate an image?

It is not possible, HackBGRT does not draw anything, Windows draws it. You need to hack Microsoft boot loader to do this.
