This did not work for me.

I agree with SignedAdam. Although I get a positive import message, the skin does not show up in the list. Any advise?
Comment #3 Monday, February 2, 2009 1:25 PM
I agree. Sadly, this does not work.

Not a frequent user of the Bootskins gallery, but I thought I'd lend a helping hand, since this skin is largely downloaded (from referring sites).
blahgye, it is impossible that your friend got it to work as default. Bootskin only recognises background images with 640 by 480 resolution. gautordi, please update this, as you uploaded a 640 by 479 background image. This is causing Bootskin not to recognise this theme. In the meantime, everyone who can't get this to work, resize the background image (bg.bmp inside Program Files > ... > Bootskin > Skins > Windows 7 Beta 1) to 640 by 480 resolution with an image editor that can save as 4-bit (16 colours) bitmap.

There should be a report faulty skin option on this site, uploading a skin that has apparently rec'd 24000+ downloads that doesn't even work seems like a bit of a waste of user time and system resources for the WC site (bandwidth, disk space usage, etc.) The skin is 640x479, bootskin won't recognize it and it won't work. Plus the progress bar is black on a black background? gautordi0101 you should be monitoring user comments every now & then and update the skin accordingly so that it works - just a suggestion
