Windows 7: Windows 7 Startup change?

Windows 7 Startup change?

Hello,

This is a pretty new laptop. Three weeks old to be exact. Anywho. You guys know how on Windows 7 when you start up the laptop/desktop/all-in-one those cool red, blue, green, and yellow are supposed to come and make the windows Icon? Well, I'm not exactly sure when this changed, but not instead of that I get the Microsof Corporation and a bar under it with three green slits or lines or whatever you feel like calling it, running through the bar. Is it possible to have this changed back to the way it was? Because I kinda like it that way.

Regards,
-TPS

That's the Vista style boot screen,

Have a look at this thread, there's a couple of options for you.

Boot logo(??) like vista

Well does anyone have anymore suggestions? I tried the command prompt one 5-8 times tonight, made my resolution that suggested one and restarted to try and didn't work.

My resolution is 1600 x 900, so I don't think that is the issue.

Please post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk Mgmt drive map and listings, using Snipping Tool in Start Menu so we can see if there's anything obvious.

Try running Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times from Windows 7 installer System Recovery Options or System Repair Disk. This contains all boot repair commands and fixes.

If that fails I would ask baarod at EightForums who gave me commands which restored the animation in a 7/8 Dual Boot here and would likely know the exact commands for 7.

Uhm...When I press F8 at startup I don't see the Advanced Boot Options above startup. I just see the safe mode stuff..

That's why I specifically said to boot the installer or Repair CD.

-_- I don't have a Repair CD. I have the Repair functions IN THE LAPTOP. I obviously can read with no trouble at all. And I checked the System Recovery Options but I don't see the advanced boot options when I pressed F8.

Did you read his post which included a link on how to make a repair CD?

System Repair Disc - Create

Do you see this screen?



That is advanced boot options,

Advanced Boot Options

With the repair CD you can use the startup repair option,

System Recovery Options

Startup Repair

I made the System Repair disc, but when I boot it doesn't seem as if it detects the CD inside the E: Drive after I restart my laptop. Is this normal?
