Windows 7 Sp1 Loader


If so, how to return back to old Win7 loader when the VHD is no longer necessary (say, when a public beta is out) and we would love to boot into the Windows 7 using its native boot loader

You are correct - this does wipe out the original bootloader. You should be able to restore the Win7 bootloader by running BCDBOOT c:\windows, where c:\windows is the Win7 windows installation location.

The auto-detection is not limited to only language, but it can also detect your Windows. Detecting the Windows version and edition is the first step of activation. The loader will detect the Windows and all the relevant things.

The taskbar has seen the biggest visual changes, where the old Quick Launch toolbar has been replaced with the ability to pin applications to the taskbar. Buttons for pinned applications are integrated with the task buttons. These buttons also enable Jump Lists to allow easy access to common tasks, and files frequently used with specific applications.[66] The revamped taskbar also allows the reordering of taskbar buttons. To the far right of the system clock is a small rectangular button that serves as the Show desktop icon. By default, hovering over this button makes all visible windows transparent for a quick look at the desktop.[67] In touch-enabled displays such as touch screens, tablet PCs, etc., this button is slightly (8 pixels) wider in order to accommodate being pressed by a finger.[68] Clicking this button minimizes all windows, and clicking it a second time restores them.

Window management in Windows 7 has several new features: Aero Snap maximizes a window when it is dragged to the top, left, or right of the screen.[69] Dragging windows to the left or right edges of the screen allows users to snap software windows to either side of the screen, such that the windows take up half the screen. When a user moves windows that were snapped or maximized using Snap, the system restores their previous state. Snap functions can also be triggered with keyboard shortcuts. Aero Shake hides all inactive windows when the active window's title bar is dragged back and forth rapidly.

Versions before Windows Vista install only one of their many HALs. Whichever is chosen, the installed copy is named HAL.DLL. This standard name is hard-coded into the loader. Unless an alternative is specified by a /HAL switch in BOOT.INI, the HAL that is loaded is whatever file is named HAL.DLL.

Windows Vista and higher install one HAL as HAL.DLL, as with earlier versions, but also install their one or two HALs under their own names. These names are hard-coded into the loader, along with the standard name HAL.DLL. In Windows Vista specifically, a detecthal option in the Boot Configuration Data (BCD) may direct the loader to select from the two. In Windows Vista and higher, a hal option can specify any file to load as the HAL. Without the hal option, the HAL that is loaded depends on the Windows version:

With this mod loader you will be able to have more than 500 missions. You are able to load only a part of your mod collection which needs less than 500 missions. So the mission limit is still active, but you can easily switch between your mods.

This is such a Battlefront II essential. However, one thing that has always bothered me is that you wouldn't be able to save "profiles" for your preferred mods. Like for example, you want to have certain mods activated but when you want to switch to a different combination of mods all you have to do is switch profiles. I do believe mod managers such as the ones from Total War and the Arma 3 Launcher apply this concept. Instead you have to manually activated each compatible mod (confusing since they're all just three letters) for each playthrough. Too bad the author for this mod loader seems to be done with this project.

But if someone wants to be on the safe side with different CPUs: That's where the Intel Intel Microcode Boot Loader from Eran "Regeneration" Badit may help. The tool uses the Intel BIOS
