    sorry even im getting confused on resolutions for the user.bmp because m$ have conflicting info!

    Im just testing the routine for brand detection in a test script...

    CustomTheme option : Disabled - User defined OEM Brand name folder not found.

    yet all other brands work if i use those... this is most odd...

    well there isn't a problem in the MRP code, the error i got before was because i spelt the test folder wrong, custome instead of custom :oops:

    For the USER.BMP resolution size, seems 128x128 pic is maximum size.
    I redid my file at right size so Windows doesn't have to resize.
    Your text file needs to be changed to fix that.

    As for the theme I finally figured out why it didn't apply the new theme on my side!
    I was frustrated and compared file by file, folder by folder for old and new.
    I even went as far as to rename $OEM$ to $oem$ as my old folder has no caps, this of course didn't solve anything.

    In the end I figured out what went wrong:
    I removed these lines from OOBE.CMD because they seemed not usefull to me as I didn't see/use those files:
    IF EXIST "%windir%\Setup\scripts\Install.cmd" CALL "%windir%\Setup\scripts\Install.cmd"
    IF EXIST "%windir%\Setup\scripts\MRPInstall.cmd" CALL "%windir%\Setup\scripts\MRPInstall.cmd"

    :: ** Note: WinTel.cmd now CALL'ed from within MRP if the file is present in the Scripts folder. **

    However that broke something somewhere? Putting those lines back solved the issue...

    Thank you for your support @mxman2k and hope you keep readme files updated for newbs like me who actually read and apply them ;)
    (And sometimes newbs like me also try to be smarter then we are and modify stuff that we shouldn't touch *cough*).

    its one of those things!

    Computers are strange beasts, they like to fool us into thinking WE own them, but in reality its THEY who have us under control by messing us about! :p

    I will get the text files updated asap. they be done for the next release.

    Updated the 'Info About Images.txt' file in the optional folder.

    Code:
    Info about Images used in the theme files
    =========================================
    
    Wallpaper.jpg and BackgroundDefault.jpg's MUST be less than 255kb in size to be fully compatible with
    Vista/7 and any Server's using those kernels. For Win 8.x/10 the restriction is not present but try to
    keep the file size less than 2mb or delays for the desktop to appear may occur due to extra processing
    time to display the image(s). Resolution to match your display, or 1920 x 1080 as they are set aleady.
    
    For Windows 8.x/10 the USER810.bmp (or USER810.png) is set at a resolution of 448x448 this is due to the
    way those OS's adjust the account picture. Using the old User.bmp resolution would cause a distorted or
    fuzzy image for the User Picture.
    
    ==========================================
    File Name                 Pixels (H x W)
    ==========================================
    Name_BADGE.BMP                  120 x 120      
    Name_BADGE.PNG                  240 x 100
    Name_BAR.BMP                    120 x 50
    Name_MCE_LOGO.PNG                90 x 45
    USER.BMP                        128 x 128
    USER810.BMP/USER810.PNG         448 x 448
    ==========================================
    
    Win7 install theme was present and correct for custom :)

    Thanks for letting me know about the text files, it's been a long time since i edited those, most are still the original ones when i took over the project in Oct 2016. :oops:

    I will check all other readme files to make sure they are up-to-date.

    No changes to the theme layout will be made as it does work for all current OS's for now, unless m$ changes something in RS5+, in which case will have to see what needs to be adjusted when that time comes - we have a few months before that one arrives and a few test builds of it. :)

    Have updated all the text files within the archive and they should now match the current MRP. Also added extra information where needed to clarify certain things.

    This will be in the next release later next month (April).

    Unless a bug is found that needs a re-upload of the project.

    Regarding the Meltdown/Spectre detection, i had thought about that, however i decided not to at this time as there are enough external tools to detect it. It might be added at some point. ;)

    I have noticed that my own little program for detecting the HDD/SSD in the MRP failed to detect the NVMe drive as a SSD in that computer! (First time it has failed).

    [HDTYP] Info: HDD Detected.

    At least detected it correctly later...

    [AMHDC] Controller Mode : NVMe/PCIe {SCSI Controller}

    My program is a very simple check of spindle speed which looks like it incorrectly picked up a value greater than zero, so thinking it is a 'spinner' HDD. :g:

    Might either remove that simple check line, or update the detection method so it is more accurate.

    I tried to add it to the QT but it caused some strange things to happen, so for now it may only be in MRP itself...

    Code added to MRP works on W10, not tested other OS's yet to see if nothing is broken elsewhere...

    I have addressed it by checking if NVMe is detected then the drive will have to be a SSD.

    I wasn't sure if it was a W7 bug as i know that OS isnt 100% SSD aware/friendly, more so for the NMVe type as it wasn't around when that OS was brought out.

    Just sorting out the Meltdown/Spectre bits for the QT, it will only be a simple line to say what results found as running out of screen space.

    The QT saved report will have a bit more information :)

    Code:
    Meltdown/Spectre Results   - This device is vulnerable to either Meltdown or Spectre.
                               - The BIOS firmware or microcode patch is not installed/present to be able to address Spectre. 
    or if bios/microcode present:
    Code:
    Meltdown/Spectre Results   - This device is vulnerable to either Meltdown or Spectre.
                               - The BIOS firmware or microcode patch is installed/present to be able to address Spectre.

    Query Tool v53.0 uploaded and 2nd post updated with download link and password. :)

    + Addressed an issue with Windows 7 that has a NVMe SSD fitted for the boot device in which the QT would think it is a HDD.

    + Added Meltdown/Spectre checks, a simple one line will be shown to say what has been detected on the display report, on the saved report there may be other information shown about a BIOS/Microcode patch etc. This routine uses the InSpectre.exe program from Gibson Research via its command line to obtain the result codes which then are converted into the text you see. This will be extended when new result codes are added to that program.

    (OP)
    After reading up on the notes about the command line side of the InSpectre.exe i have adjusted the QT to show if only Meltdown, Spectre or both are present.

    I think this is a more informative way. :)

    So have updated the QT with this new extended method, have updated the download link and hash checks on the 2nd post.

    Sorry about the quick change but i think you will agree it does look a lot better. :)

    I have kept same version 53.0 as it technically the same. Only the wording changed.

    So if you have meltdown OS patch in place, but Spectre isn't patched you will see on the QT display version:

    This device is vulnerable to Spectre only.
    The line under this on the saved report will say the extra information as before.

    It now represents the current (#7) InSpectre's GUI in text form. :)

    Example saved report information:
    Code:
    Meltdown/Spectre Results   - This device is vulnerable to Spectre only.
                               - The BIOS firmware or microcode patch is not installed/present to be able to address Spectre.
