Run the following from the cmd prompt and attach the text file in your next post.

bcdedit /enum all > C:\bcd.txt

Do you have access to any bootable WinPE media that can access the cmd prompt, eg. Bootable Win7 USB installer or Win7 DVD?

Startup Repair will fix that, I have that boot screen few days ago, when I was using BootUpdater app (customization tool for boot logo), and installed Windows 8 on another partition, anyways, that's another topic.

But booting from a Windows 7 Install Disk and repair it using Startup repair will fix it... I have that logo before now Its restored to Windows 7 default startup logo..

That is not a Vista boot screen, instead it is an alternative Windows 7 boot screen animation (16 bpp, 640 X 480) which will be used when your system does not meet minimum requirements for color depth (32 bpp) and resolution (1024 X 768) for the real 7 boot screen animation.

As far as I know there's nothing you can do if as you say your PC does not meet the minimum resolution requirements of Windows 7 boot animation.

Well that's good hopefully we won't need it though.

If startup repair fails then try this.
Open the cmd window and type one line at a time
Code:
bcdedit /set {current} BOOTUX Standard
bcdedit /set {bootmgr} GRAPHICSRESOLUTION 1024x768
Steps in case we can't boot. (Recommend printing)

First try a Startup Repair and if that fails do the following to reverse the changes we made.

1. Boot Win7 USB

2. On the first screen press Shift+F10 to bring up a cmd window

3. You can type notepad to open it then go File > Open to find the correct drive letter for your Windows drive which should have the Label BOOT.

4. Type bcdedit /store [Drive]:\boot\BCD. Example:
Code:
bcdedit /store C:\boot\BCD
5. Now look for the "Windows Boot Loader" entry that has the "bootux" option (should only be one) and copy the Identifier which will look like this "{bbc35bc0-e8d8-11e0-9656-bce3a505db87}" or might be "{default}"

6. Type bcdedit /store C:\boot\BCD /deletevalue [IDENTIFIER] bootux. Example:
Code:
bcdedit /store C:\boot\BCD /deletevalue {bbc35bc0-e8d8-11e0-9656-bce3a505db87} bootux
7. Repeat step 4 and look for the "Windows Boot Manager" entry and copy the Identifier.

8. Type bcdedit /store C:\boot\BCD /deletevalue [IDENTIFIER] GRAPHICSRESOLUTION. Example:
Code:
bcdedit /deletevalue {bootmgr} GRAPHICSRESOLUTION
9. Close everything and reboot.

Geeks, there's no way OP can show original Windows 7 boot animation with his resolution. Please read my previous post above.

This is trying to force a resolution of 1024x768 and the Standard boot screen. But it may not work if the display cannot support the resolution.
