    Thank you Barman and smarteyball, your posts were helpful to understand a few possibly related reason, however on this notebook there was a clean install of Windows 7, 6801 and 6956 ... I thought I had put 7000, i'm upgraded now to 7000 from 6956 , but I still get the Vista boot screen.

    I have never put Vista on this LG, it came with XP preinstalled, plus I did clean install of Win7 but still the same boot screen.

    I must say that when I boot with USB stick to Backtrack, instead of automatically booting, it stops and asks me to define the lines of the screen because autodetect fails. I select 80x25,80x50 etc and it works.
    This indicates that the screen size is weird to some OSes.Perhaps it has to do with that, but I still can't figure this out.I guess if it's a bug, there must be a way to FORCE it, but how? winload.exe has more that one bootscreens hidden in it???

    It's official...The new boot screen needs 1024x768 screen capabilities , but LG X110 and MSI WIND (same thing) have a 1024x600 screen in which the new boot screen is impossible to show. You can see it only if u connect an external monitor..

    as it is said here:
    Msi Wind Forums • View topic - Windows 7 6956 new bootscreen can we tamper with that?

    Maybe with a BIOS update this could be fixed. Some laptop BIOSs have screen stretch or false resolution report options.

    Ah, that explains it. I will attach my netbook to a external screen just to verify this. A bit strange that MS put in that resolution "restriction", not that it's the end of the world but a new boot screen makes me feel that I have something new and fresh...
