Guide for modifying text in the Windows XP bootloader

Posted on 2011-07-07 at 14:30 in Random by Robbi-985.

I recently played around with the Windows XP bootloader on my laptop in a hex editor for fun, to change some messages. The one in the photo below is what is shown after a previous failed boot, although I’m not really happy about how that attempt of ASCII art looks.

Since some people were interested, I have made a tutorial, here. ^^
