Tried everything in msconfig.
boxes are ticked. the "noguiboot" gives a blank,black screen while booting, besides, noguiboot is a static image but I have animated
logo , only the old vista one
. It's some sort of backward compatibility with some screen resolutions or something.
Tried a few bcdedit options, (novesa on/off etc) , but I doubt they are there for this reason
Weird...what process detects the video screen size (80x25 etc) at startup??? Must be a setting there, but I've never heard of such thing on Windows XP, Vista etc.
