Shoutbox

ihatemetro: Both of those are dangerous to modify. I think you may have messed up the explorer context menus in shell32.dll.mui (they are stored there) and comdlg32.dll.mui could have stored some startup stuff. to run shell:startup. I did modify explorer.exe.mui, Oct 20, 2020 12:27:56 GMT -8 *
ihatemetro: but it didn't do much and actually still worked fine (It was for taskbar context menu). Weird that 8.1 can't take shell32.dll.mui modifications. Oct 20, 2020 12:28:11 GMT -8 *
Scamdisk: The only thing I modify in them is Oct 20, 2020 12:31:28 GMT -8
Scamdisk: Changed the dialogs font Oct 20, 2020 12:31:32 GMT -8
Scamdisk: to MS Shell Dlg Oct 20, 2020 12:31:36 GMT -8
Scamdisk: And modified run and winver Oct 20, 2020 12:31:46 GMT -8
R.O.B.: Never had any issues modifying either of those files when I was on Win8.1, and I was making very similar modifications. Are you seeing anything unusual in Event Viewer? Oct 20, 2020 21:03:54 GMT -8
Scamdisk: Nothing looks wrong Oct 20, 2020 21:15:28 GMT -8
Scamdisk: I would consider going back to 7 but since I use GPT Oct 20, 2020 21:17:45 GMT -8
Scamdisk: I'm not sure about it Oct 20, 2020 21:17:58 GMT -8
Scamdisk: explorer.exe did another loop crash Oct 20, 2020 21:19:38 GMT -8
ihatemetro: Windows 7 can be installed on GPT if you have CSM enabled, that's basically the only way to install Windows 7 on GPT and UEFI. There is another way without turning on CSM, but that involves modifying Windows 7 to remove the VGA drivers Oct 21, 2020 4:40:01 GMT -8 *
ihatemetro: and preinstalling graphics drivers for your integrated graphics (dedicated could also work too if you have one). Oct 21, 2020 4:40:55 GMT -8 *
Scamdisk: Great. Another loop explorer crash when I logged in. Fantastic. Oct 21, 2020 9:16:07 GMT -8
Scamdisk: I have some partitions in my drive, how would I access them in 7 if they're in GPT? Oct 21, 2020 20:13:33 GMT -8 *
Scamdisk: I will try to remove the VGA drivers, but how? Oct 21, 2020 20:25:13 GMT -8
ihatemetro: GPT disks and partitions can be viewed back as far back as Vista. Just make sure that your installation media is GPT and bootable via UEFI as well, or using DISM. Back in the day I have also installed Windows 7 without CSM and I had to find out Oct 22, 2020 4:44:08 GMT -8
ihatemetro: things myself. It isn't as simple as that. Here's something that I found useful: youtube.com/watch?v=1Yyr1zuFiYk Oct 22, 2020 4:50:17 GMT -8 *
Scamdisk: I moved back into Windows 7, since I had backups and such, I can get it running just as before Oct 22, 2020 12:50:59 GMT -8
Scamdisk: Quickly Oct 22, 2020 12:51:02 GMT -8
