2nd Win7 install, now Vista loading screen after remove

Hi All,

Some might remember I posted a few days ago about installing Win7 (64bit) separately on this same comp (different hard drive) to test what drivers worked for the devices I had, in particular the Canon scanner.

Anyway it worked, and I booted into Win7 64b fine - but I had a few issues getting back into 32-bit one (64bit one became the active boot... even after i used diskpart and bcdedit etc.

Anyway, I got the 32-bit install to again load as the default (and deleted the 64-bit partition)... BUT, I keep getting the Vista booting screen - i.e. the small green loading bar instead of the elaborate "Starting Windows'. I then put in the Win7 dvd in and went to repair the install (to try & get the Win7 boot screen back), but it wouldnt even find the OS install to repair it.

So basically, its back to the 32bit win7 install fine - but with the older Vista loading screen. Any ideas? thanks heaps!

Nope just the normal 19" monitor I've used with the 32-bit Win 7 (1280x1024 res). Weird because before installing 64-bit onto the other HD, the boot screen was the Win7 one as normal.

Run command prompt as administrator and enter bcdedit /set {current} locale en-US if en-US is not your locale (english) change en-US to your own locale.

just to give a bit more this, this is the contents of my BCD - anyone recognise something weird in there?:

Win7 loading screen
Ok. I have Win7 x64 on my computer, and I have seen that with Win7 there is a new loading screen. All that I ever get is the same boring green bar like in Vista. Did I do something wrong, or is there an option to change it?
