vista or 7 7100

The same thing happens to me on my system. I have found that the problem seems to be caused by my HDMI connection. When i disconnect my 46 inch screen and connect a standard computer screen via Vga or DVI the old vista loader goes away and I can see the new Windows 7 boot animation. So try Hooking up your screen via DVI or Vga and see if that solves your problem

yep you are correct, i found this out yesterday though i had a suspiction.

wierd that HDMI wont allow it, i cant understand why that would be, must be due to resolution differences, but i would have thought HDMI wouldhave been better if not the same as DVI

I cant say it is a fix to use VGA as i want to send audio and video through a 15m HDMI cable to another room and employing a VGA connection would break this but at least its another question answered

Thanks for confirming that !
