no animated boot screen using hdmi to dvi

I'm having an issue here. I have a nvidia geforce 7300gt with hdmi to dvi plugged in and it seems I only get the crappy vista boot screen. How do I solve this issue?
have a vizio VO22LFHDTV 1080p.

Hi

Welcome to Seven Forums
Is the issue with the boot-screen only?
Are you able to log into your desktop?

Welcome to Seven Forums Kenny301. This can be caused by multi booting OS amongst other things. This might fix it.

Start> Type cmd in search box> Right click cmd.exe in results above and click on Run As Administrator

Type in:

bcdedit /set {current} locale en-US

Enter

if that doesn't work, you can then try

bcdboot %WinDir% /l en-US

Enter

This is for US Windows 7, if yours is from another country, change the en-US to the correct language option. ( ja-JP, de-DE, es-ES, pt-BR, zh-CN, zh-TW, fr-FR, fi-FI , etc.)

Press enter and reboot. See if that doesn't do it.

People have had this problem using HDMI, try with VGA or DVI, see if it works then. There is a minimum graphics requirement for the 7 bootscreen as it displays at 1024x768. If it is set lower, you will get the Vista boot screen.

I don't believe there is. From what I have read before, this has to do with HDMI, and the minimum resolution required to display the Windows 7 animation (1024x768). If it is not the bcdedit issue, then it is the resolution/hdmi issue. An annoyance at most, but if it really bugs you. Do some googling for windows 7 displays vista boot screen, or similar. Sorry, A Guy
