Windows 7: Lost my orbs!

Lost my orbs!

After installing 7077 64bit, I lost the orbs when starting up. In the 64 bit partition it starts with the normal Windows 7 screen, but when I start the 32 bit partition or Windows 7 it starts up with the old Vista screen. Everything runs fine, I really just never want to see that Vista screen again.
Anyone know how I can get my orbs back?

Thanks!!

Her is how to restore orbs

1) Type cmd into the Start menu search box and press Ctrl+Shift+Enter

2) Copy and paste the following into command prompt. This command is for the English version of Windows. Make sure to change en-US to the proper locale if you are using another version.

bcdedit /set {current} locale en-US

Once you restart your computer, the changes will take effect and you should see the Windows 7 boot screen.

Hope this helps.

If that dosent work tray this:

Type cmd into the Start menu search box and run as administrator

just run following commands

bcdboot %WinDir% /l en-US

Change the en-US to the language version of the installed Windows 7, such as ja-JP, de-DE, es-ES, pt-BR, zh-CN, zh-TW, fr-FR, fi-FI and etc.

and restart

I know this is a very old thread, but I am having the same issue again. Now I am just dual booting with Windows 8. And on booting into Win 7 I am getting the old Vista bootscreen. Any way to get the default screen back? Thank you.

EDIT: Tried both the ways above, but no luck.
