Windows 7: Windows 7 Startup

Windows 7 Startup

When my Windows 7 boots it does the Vista boot instead. I've watched the Windows 7 startups on youtube and they have the proper boot. How can I change this?

Only two reasons I can think of:

Did you do an upgrade or a clean install?
Do you still have Vista on your machine?

He/she means instead of the swirly butterfly bootlogo Windows 7 has he/she gets the Vista one.

Get one of the EasyBCD betas and have it re-write your MBR if you want the butterfly effect thingy back.

Do you have a dual-boot and you are booting on the wrong OS?

type in Run ...msconfig

got to the boot ini tab & select your default OS

Quick and simple fix. I've had this before (on purpose for various reasons).

Copy and paste this in Command Prompt (running as admin of course):
Code:
bcdedit /set {current} locale en-US
Reboot, and see if it's back to normal. If it isn't, run this command (almost guaranteed to work):
Code:
bcdboot %WinDir% /l en-US

Actually this is normally do to a conflict with your GFX and boot. The boot animation checks to see if the GFX can render it and makes a decision. The resolution of the monitor also plays a part (I have had many who have told me that...)
