No Animated boot screen!

I just installed windows 7 pro (clean install from Microsoft's student upgrade program) but it boots with the old vista boot screen! I want the windows 7 boot screen! All the other posts I found on this usually had to do with BCDedit which I have tried but they didn't work. I already checked msconfig and "no GUI boot" is not checked. What can I do?

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.

Lost Animated Boot Screen
After I installed Win7 64 to dual boot with Win732, and fixed the boot menu to show both options (thanks to those of you that helped with that), I somehow lost the animated boot screen splash. I now have the "Vista" green bar. Is there a setting somewhere that controls this? jjw ND
