Windows 7: GTX260 bad in Windows 7?

Have tried that now. But it did not help either.
I guess it is not a driver-problem as I have the problem from the very first boot before Windows 7 is even installed. I give up

Have you tried installing this "beta" update for windows 7 64-bit?

No, that is an older driver than the one I'm using right now:
GeForce ForceWare 190.15 Win 7 | Vista (64-bit) download from Guru3D.com

But again, I don't think it is a driver problem, as the "problem" is there BEFORE any drivers are installed, when installing Windows 7 from my USB-stick.

Maybe some BIOS settings were wrong?

if you could post some Screens/Pictrues of your settings if would try to figure it out. Ever thought about an BIOS update?

You also had bad performance with other OS?

I don't have bad performance in Windows 7 or in games. It is only under boot, that I see "vista boot", green squares instead of the flag from Windows 7.
There is not much settings in BIOS to the graphic, some about OC which I don't use, and then if PCI or PCIe should be first attempted (selected is PCIe), all PCIe OC is disabled and Volt and Busspeed is set to Auto.

Ah ok. Could you make a photo of that screen?
I really can't imagine how that looks?

Maybe you could try to update out of Windows 7 to Build 7600?

Well, just boot any PC with Vista on, then you will see green squares "running" from left to right, the same squares as in XP, but in XP they were blue.
I have tried 7600 also (like 7264 better, so restored back to this), and every single build since beta 2 has given me this boot-screen
