Windows 7: Display at bootup

I don't run dual when I play games, although I think I would make an exception for a flight sim. I play mostly first person shooters and some race sims. Having the frames of my two LCD's smack dab in the middle doesn't work out so well for a first person shooter. Hmmm, maybe I should go to 3 displays, yeah thats the ticket. Opens wallet, watches moth fly out, and thinks to himself, well maybe not.

I have a NVidia 250GTS. I use HDMI to feed the Acer 23 in monitor that is my main display. I also have a generic 19 in CRT that I feed with the VGA port as a secondary. We use it for displaying system monitoring and web pages while gaming.

Here's the thing... When I boot, the secondary display shows my post (things like Memory checks, drive detection, "Loading Operating System"...etc. I'd like to see that on the main display, instead.

Is there any way to do this? I'm assuming that the video card defaults to my VGA display because it's the lowest denominator. I'd just like to see all of that on the flat panel, because it is nearly instant-on.

Thanx ahead of time... and pls pardon any misuse of terms.
The first display to show boot information is the one that Windows uses as the Primary display. If yours is not the one you want then like me swop the cables
