    Hello,

    For one Windows 8 AIO 16 in 1…

    Windows 8 x86
    Windows 8 N x86
    Windows 8 Pro x86
    Windows 8 Pro VL x86
    Windows 8 Pro N x86
    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center x86
    Windows 8 Enterprise x86
    Windows 8 Enterprise N x86
    Windows 8 x64
    Windows 8 N x64
    Windows 8 Pro x64
    Windows 8 Pro VL x64
    Windows 8 Pro N x64
    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center x64
    Windows 8 Enterprise x64
    Windows 8 Enterprise N x64


    … made with the tutorial of ambidav...

    ... i seek how to increase of a line, the framework of the window, of selection of the edition to be installed.

    The framework contains 7 lines…

    Windows 8 x86
    Windows 8 N x86
    Windows 8 Pro x86
    Windows 8 Pro VL x86
    Windows 8 Pro N x86
    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center x86
    Windows 8 Enterprise x86


    ... and i would like, 8 lines...

    Windows 8 x86
    Windows 8 N x86
    Windows 8 Pro x86
    Windows 8 Pro VL x86
    Windows 8 Pro N x86
    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center x86
    Windows 8 Enterprise x86
    Windows 8 Enterprise N x86


    Or 9...

    Windows 8 x86
    Windows 8 N x86
    Windows 8 Pro x86
    Windows 8 Pro VL x86
    Windows 8 Pro N x86
    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center x86
    Windows 8 Enterprise x86
    Windows 8 Enterprise N x86
    Windows 8 x64


    .. if 8 it is not possible.

    I also seek, how to change the picture/photography of background.

    I believe that these 2 things are realizable, because i saw DVD AIO of Windows 8, with the larger framework, and the the picture/photography of background modified.

    That made 3 days that i seek, and really i do not find how to make. If somebody can advise me, please...

    (i hope that you understand me, not easy to explain without captures of screen, and to translate into English)

    You need to mount boot.wim, image index 2, to edit the Setup boot files.

    The background image is \sources\background.bmp.
    The image selection dialog is (probably) in \sources\<language>\w32uires.dll.mui, resource ID 3005. You can edit that with a resource editor such as Resource Hacker.
    I haven't tried modifying it, I've just looked it up with ResHacker, but it looks like that's the file that's going to be used in Setup.

    Yes !
    Perfect for image selection dialog, i modified to have 8 lines, that's great :worthy:

    For the image, that modified only, when is written : Starting of the program of installation (Démarrage du programme d'installation, in french :) )

    I will seek other image(s) it is necessary to replace (win8aio\sources\background_cli.bmp, maybe), but i am already very content like that. The most important was : image selection dialog.

    A big thank you.

    It is this image apparently (i mounted the boot.win of a win8aio with personalized image and it is background.bmp which is replaced), but if i replace it, it is only used (as i already said) when is written "Starting of the program of installation" (h t t p://img202.imageshack.us/img202/3795/8765t.png)

    With the win8aio with personalized image, the image is also used (how i would like too) like background of the window : h t t p://img832.imageshack.us/img832/381/3731.png

    I suppose that its use is configured has a place, but where… ?

    I found :holiday:

    For the background (with boot.wim/index 2\sources\background.bmp) :

    boot.wim/index 2\Windows\System32\setup.bmp

    For the window :

    boot.wim/index 2\sources\spwizimg.dll (resource : Bitmap-517)

    Thanks again 100.
