Windows 7 Ultimate RTM (x86)
No windows logo when booting

I am running a VERY slightly modded version of 7 as it was the only one I could find. I have noticed that people say that when booting they see a windows logo. I see the vista-like loading bar, then the log-on screen?

I can see where your coming from.
I was running XP, but there was this recovery thing 'TechGuys' (from pc world) that when I started did the vista loading bar. Linux also recognises my xp as vista (loader). Can I have the windows logo or am I stuck with this?
