Windows 7: Different Windows 7 Boot Screens due to Resolution?

Different Windows 7 Boot Screens due to Resolution?

Hi guys, I'm just curious about a little detail, is not something that bothers me, but I'm kind of curious.

I have a little Gateway netbook, as you know, netbooks res. generally sucks. Well, this little guy can be included in that list.

The point is that I get to receive a Windows Vista boot screen while I boot it on her screen.

But when I connect it on another monitor it will show Windows 7's.

Is it because of the resolution? Does the Windows 7's boot screen needs a minimum resolution to boot that is higher than 800 x 600?

Thanks in advance.

Did you do an in place upgrade from Vista?? This is usually the cause of differing boot screens... Of course, if you do a clean install of Windows 7, you wont have this problem...

Haha, actually I didn't. The PC itself came with Windows 7 basic, and I even deleted the hard drive twice after two different formats I needed to do with Win7 ultimate. It was not because of the boot screen since I really don't care, but it just makes me curious that's why I posted it here to see if someone had the same "event".

Thanks for the quick reply.

The fancy boot animation is depended on the resolution. 1024x768 is probably the minimum.

I'd agree with that - I saw it somwhere. Also, my netbook is 1024x600 I think, and it only does the Vista-style boot-up screen (clean install).

To set Vista legacy green bar:
bcdedit /set bootux basic
Back to default Windows 7 boot animation:
bcdedit /set bootux standard
(or bcdedit /deletevalue bootux)
To get rid of all this crap at boot time:
bcdedit /set bootux disabled
Using Bcdedit (from limneos)
