Here you go...


Just remember that I got one Windows XP in the first partition (E:\ in this case)
At the first time, I think there was another session called {ntldr} for my XP. But after the problem, it became useless so I deleted it. Now I really want to know how to bring it back on.

Hi kings,

Try this:

Boot into 7, open an elevated command prompt and type:

bcdedit /set {current} locale en-US

press enter.

Hope it helps

Hi,

That's strange - do you have that en-US folder under C:\Windows

-en-us-2009-04-29_230604.jpg

en-US.zip

When you say without success - do you mean the command prompt did not respond it had completed successfully?

If so, try copying and pasting the command in - it has to be exactly correct, including the spacing:

bcdedit /set {current} locale en-US

like this:

-en-us-2-2009-04-29_232014.jpg

You will probably be on the C: drive and have white writing on a black screen. ( You probably know that - it is for the benefit of others reading this thread).

If your screen resolution is less than 600 vertical pixels you get the Vista-style screen.

Here's what Steve Sinofsky has to say on the Endineering Windows 7 Blog in response to a question why the Dell Mini 9 has the Vista-style boot screen...
re: Engineering the Windows 7 Boot Animation
@Alan_Burchill -- the new sequence requires a native resolution higher than the 1024x600, "It gets a pointer to the frame buffer from the firmware (either BIOS or UEFI firmware), and displays a higher resolution image (1024 x 768)."
