It's been a long time since I messed with customizing boot screens, but from what I recall, the boot animation was done using a file named winload.exe. When you customized a boot screen, it renamed the original file and built a new file using that name.

If you can find someone else with the same Win7 version, you might be able to get this working by copying their winload.exe file onto your PC.

How are you activating Ultimate on that Vista laptop? This is often caused by BIOS-level cracktivation.
