Guide: How I altered Windows to look and feel like an XBMC HTPC appliance
#36
2 quick questions, and one is sorta OT (but not quite)

Question 1:
I tried this some time ago on win7 prior to service pack 1 being released. I made up a cool splash screen and everything, tried the app on this site, and ended up with a boot loop. So, my question is, has anyone tried this lately and is it working better now? Is anyone having boot loop issues? I thought I made my animation within the specifications but I wonder if maybe my images were too large (file size, not pixel dimensions).

Question 2:
I just set up eventghost so that it runs as a shell for windows. I followed the instructions on the wiki found here. Windows boots, I see a black screen, mouse cursor, and eventghost gui. Then XBMC launches. How do I get it so that I don't see the eventghost gui. The mouse is easily solved by changing the color to black.
