    Hey CG. No I meant an alternative graphic for the boot screen Vista hidenseek to Win7 HidenSeek. Vista had so many problems I rather not see the word! But a great program. M

    Can you point me to the registry hack so I can see if I want to go down that route?

    Mike, I'm sure you know that HnS isn't at all supported any more, which is of course a damn shame given how much work went into it. But maybe I can work up another image for you if I can locate the original artwork

    GDH: No restore points are available when you use Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008-based operating systems in a dual-boot configuration together with an earlier Windows operating system

    Cheers.

    Mike, you can custom build your own boot splash.

    Sorry, was that an attachment to a Mod thread ? So long ago I'd forgotten.

    Default Vista HnS v. registry tweak v. BCD 2.1

    The new version of BCD is great. However, as most users of BCD boot between WinXp, Win7 and maybe Ubunto - unless the registry tweak works for you - you still need HnS to preserve system restore points.

    The registry hack doesn't seem to work for quite a few people including myself who now use HnS successfully. So has anyone established WHY the registry hack doesn't work universally, after all windows KB thinks it does. Has anyone established what other parameters are perhaps linked with this problem? Is there no chance of somehow incorporating the hiding function in the BCD, it seems to do everything else. Mike

    Seeing why the registry hack doesn't work has been on my to-do list for a loooong time......

    Pity it wasn't universal then it could be incorporated as a fix in bcd, and hns could be retired

    What's your configuration Mike ?
    I'll compare it to how mine was originally when the hack failed to do the job for me ( why I originally arrived here, and never got round to leaving !)
    To be honest, my current config is completely different (twice as many OSs, shuffled around onto new HDDs) so the hack might work for me now, but I never got round to trying it because I'm pretty happy with my custom HnS setup and of course, "IIAB - DFI")

    Uploaded my config from the Win 7 side, doesnt show a lot. Strange thing is, windows xp is disk 1 and windows 7 is disk 3 when you look at the actual sata cables to the mobo. The virtual rendition continually changes. Mike

    No that's absolutely nothing like my original setup (like this without W7 or Ubu), so no clues there.
    Your simple unpartitionioned separate drives setup has been certain to work with the hack in my experience here, so it gets more mysterious !

    Hi - only 2nd post.. so quick second "hello"..

    Just a quick question - last week I was setting up a PC for my sister in law who wanted Vista on one drive and XP on the other. Straight forward i thought using easy BCD etc... And it was. Everything worked fine. Two logins for XP and Vista for her to login at start appears and all login fine with no issues.
    That was however until she told me that she was having issues with the "restore in Vista" issue (which i later found to be a problem while searching the net..) As the version of Vista was Premium it didnt include the BitLock feature (which I believe can resolve this issue on Vista) Anyway to cut a long story short... Vista Hide 'n Seek BETA solved the problem perfectly. However, I still have easyBCD installed. So when my sister in law logs on she gets the usual login screen (hide n Seek one) XP goes straight in no problems, but when she chooses Vista, the two options to choose appear again (with the 30 sec countdown) originally set up with easyBCD. Hope I am making sense here... lol..
    Basically is it ok to uninstall easyBCD and just use the HidenSeek? ? The main thing it works fine, I guess I am just trying to cut out the easyBCD XP/Vista option screen? (Vista is the default OP btw..) Thanks in advance anyone.. Ged
