    Windows 7 bld7000 has vista boot screen!

    hello, I guess not many of you have come up with this weird problem.
    I have installed Windows 7 build 7000 in a couple of PCs , everything fine.

    I have installed it on a netbook (LG X110, its the same with MSI WIND U100), and upon boot, the boot screen is the old Vista animated boot screen, with the green bar loader at the bottom. No new W7 boot screen.

    I guess it has to do with the screen size of LG X110 (10") which also causes screen detection issues in other OS's (e.g. Backtrack 3), but is there an option where I can FORCE the resolution/screen size so that it will show the correct boot screen??

    Thank u all,

    What boxes are ticked when you run msconfig>Boot?

    Tried everything in msconfig.

    Currently, no boxes are ticked. the "noguiboot" gives a blank,black screen while booting, besides, noguiboot is a static image but I have animated logo , only the old vista one. It's some sort of backward compatibility with some screen resolutions or something.

    Tried a few bcdedit options, (novesa on/off etc) , but I doubt they are there for this reason

    Weird...what process detects the video screen size (80x25 etc) at startup??? Must be a setting there, but I've never heard of such thing on Windows XP, Vista etc.

    I just tried a few different flags (no gui / base OS boot information) and none made any difference. They all showed the animated boot logo

    Don't know, sorry.

    yeah, weird indeed...I looked up the winload.exe.mui with Resource Hacker to find any strings related to the resolution, but nothing...

    I guess I'll wait for an official solution to this minor annoyance.

    Thanks for the tries.

    Hi limneos

    I did experience this myself at the start when 6956 was released (sorry Escaped ),
    what happened with me was I installed 6801 x86 dual boot with Vista and had both working fine with their respective boot screens

    I then decided to add 6956 which installed fine and booted with it's own boot screen

    For some reason decided to edit the BCD with easybcd from within vista and changed the primary OS to vista.

    From that point onwards all three OS's booted using the Vista Green bar boot screen.

    this may be totally unrelated to your issue, but who knows

    I'd be very interested to know if you find a solution to this "problem" as I have the exact same issue with Win7 on my Lenovo s10 netbook.

    Just worked out why W7 boot logo didn't change. It applied all the changes to Vista instead.

    Just booted into Vista and was greeted by OS information and a base video desktop.

    Silly of me to think changes made in one OS wouldn't affect the other

    The intertwining of settings between Vista and 7 is a bit of a PITA.

    My guess limneos, is that the Vista settings are over-riding 7's

    I got exactly that screen after doing a startup repair on 6801. For a second, I thought I'd booted into Vista by mistake - but after the green bars , there was 6801.

    Well, the funny/strange thing for me is that I don't dual boot - I only have Win7 on my Netbook...

    Is there a setting a should try?
