Customising Error messages

I am at present in a testing program pre rollout, and i would like to customise the error messages found in SBerrors.ini, however the only files i can find via search are sberrors.xml.

I was wondering either where to find sberrors.ini to edit it if possible, or to ask is there a way to edit the XML file to customise the erro messages for users

RE: Customising Error messages

you can edit the XML file with any unicode text editor (ie Notepad), but be warned - support may decide not to support you if they can't understand the error messages you are giving them.

What message do you want to change?

Thanks I will have a look.

Simon addressed this in another post:

You can edit the SBErrors.xml file but customizations will not display in pre-boot.  They will display in Windows UI though...

It would be nice if this file could modify the default error messages pre-boot.
