For Grub4Dos, all .lst files contain a color code at the very top. You can easily edit it. Not sure the colors allowed.


Curious myself if you could add image backgrounds to any of them. I know Grub allows you to...but not so sure Grub4Dos will allow you.


Does this work by any chance Icecube? http://members.chello.at/bobby100/ILpart2.htm

By dos screen you mean the screen to select which program to run when you boot the CD correct? If so, you need to extract the UBCD ISO and edit the files.

This tutorial will help you: http://wiki.ultimatebootcd.com/index.ph ... emastering

If you want to use a background picture in Syslinux, you will need vesamenu.c32 instead of menu.c32:
Code:
MENU BACKGROUND background

        For vesamenu.c32, sets the background image. The background can either be a color (see MENU COLOR) or the name of an image file, which should be 640x480 pixels and either in PNG or JPEG format

@darkcast

Even if you are using Windows 7, UBCD (for DOS) boots with isolinux, so the help you received is correct.

If, by any chance, you want help for UltimateBootCD for Windows (UBCD4Win), or any BartCD based tool, then you are posting at the wrong forum.

What about for Grub4Dos?

Nvm found it: http://diddy.boot-land.net/grub4dos/fil ... tm#display

Curious as to why UBCD logo isn't displayed as the background image?


Odd, after following several sites instructions on how to make a background images, it works but its red in color and not centered on the screen.
