Need help in getting windows 7 boot screen in 640 x 480 at 60hz?

Hi i have tri sync arcade monitor 31khz max = 60hz refresh rate.
Now i have ste windows 7 reoslution 640 x 480 at 60hz and the arcade monitor syncs fine, once windows is started. But during the windows boot screen, it is out of sync and keeps flashing. Now when i first setup the pc to the arcade monitor, it had the vista loading bar and the monitor was in sync.

What i am trying to do is get windows 7 to use the vista loading boot screen instead?

Is there anyway i can force this?

I read somewhere maybe using bcdedit to set the graphicsresolution but i can't get this command to work

Usually Windows 7 users want to fix that problem, not create it . The method to fix it may hold the clue to creating it (which is usually caused when user adds a Windows 7 entry in boot menu or accidentally when user attempts to repair the startup menu items with Windows Vista DVD, specifically Startup Repair)



The method to fix it is, from an elevated command prompt, type:

bcdedit /set {current} locale en-US

or

bcdboot %WinDir% /l en-US

Perhaps altering that string will result in your desired effect.

That's it:
To set Vista legacy green bar:
bcdedit /set bootux basic
Back to default Win7 boot animation:
bcdedit /set bootux standard
(or bcdedit /deletevalue bootux)
To get rid of all this crap at boot time:
bcdedit /set bootux disabled

resolution and 60Hz vs 70Hz (problem in Windows 7)
Here is a newly installed Windows 7. The problem is: It is in 800x600 and 60Hz When I set it to 1024x768 windows 7 changes it to 70Hz. (Note that this monitor has no support for 1024x768 at 70Hz.) Why the hell it is changing to 70 Hz? I'm not touching the 60Hz-70Hz settings.
