Windows 7: Dual boot Windows 7/8.1 displays Vista startup

Dual boot Windows 7/8.1 displays Vista startup

I have dual-booted Windows 8.1 and 7 (8.1 preinstalled), and when booting Windows 7, the Windows Vista start animation always shows instead of the orbs. I have tried running "bcdedit /set {current} locale en-US" and "bcdboot %WinDir% /l en-US" (Yes, my nationality is Japan, but this is an American computer with American Windows 7 HP) commands, but those issues are not solved. I know my 1920x1080 display meets the 1024x768 requirement for the animation. What can I do to reinstate the Windows 7 bootanim?

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Can you post a picture of the startup animation ?
It's been a while since I've seen a vista startup

There you go. That's what it looks like, pretty much. Found it online since Print Screen won't work during startup.

Unfortunately using bcdedit as instructed in that article did not solve the problem.

Hi,
Where did you buy your 7 install disk at ?

I'm using a reused product key from a retail disk from Newegg (I built a PC a few years ago, broke a year ago), Microsoft says its valid. My current ISO came from Digital River before it went down.

This is an American computer, and I installed the en-US version of Windows 7 HP. I just have residence in Japan.
