Windows 7: Windows 7 Boot Screen on Netbook

Windows 7 Boot Screen on Netbook

Hi, don't really know the exact forum section to post this in so put it in here, feel free to move it to the best appropriate section if need be.

Right, now to my question.

I've got a Toshiba NB300 netbook which comes with Windows 7 Starter, I upgraded it to Home Premium and was wondering why the initial boot screen looks like the one Windows Vista has, is there any way to change it to look like the 1st screen below or is it a graphics card restriction that all netbooks have?
