Restoring An Xp Bootscreen

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I recently downgraded back to XP from vista, and was extremely happy about the performance. However, I liked vista's theme, and so I download the Vista Transformation pack by windows x to remake the whole thing.

 

However, it was slow, so I uninstalled it, but the bootscreen is still "Windows vista"! How can I undo this?

I can't do that, because I just reinstalled XP and don't have any previous restore points. If I restore to the earliest date, I will have to reinstall all drivers and programs, correct?

 

Also, all the icons are in vista style.

Put in your Windows XP disc and load the setup. Choose the 'Repair" option and let it repair XP. It should replace the replaced system files with the originals so you can still keep everything else. You'll probably have to run Windows Update again though.

-Completely remove vista

-hit start

-run

-msconfig

-switch to "boot.ini"

-Remove the vista option

 

Alternatively

Pick up your windows XP installation disk

 

Now;

-Remove ALL vista files from your computer completely uninstall it.

-Pop in your XP disk, restart computer

-Now hit any key to boot into the XP installation screen

-Hit "R" on the first screen, this will place you in the Repair screen

-now type "Fixmbr"

-restart and done

 

Darkeyes thats kinda overkill lol.

What's overkill? All I told him to do was repair the Windows directory, which is also what you told him to do.

Well, thanks everybody. I have system restored to the first day of XP downgrading, and everything is fine, but the Icons are still Vista style. Oh well!

 

Much Thanks,

Sean

 

And repair may be a bit too extreme, especially if you're repairing everything.
