Vista boot screen when loading Windows 7
Vista boot screen when loading Windows 7
I have an Acer Aspire one AOA150 8.9" screen, 1GB of RAM, Intel GMA950, Intel Atom N270, and 160GB HDD. I have three partitions set up: one for XP, one for sharing files, and one for Windows 7 Build 7000. The problem is when I go to start Windows 7 I see the Vista loading screen with the green bar. So, to address the problem, I thought it may be something to do with the MBR. So, I install easy BCD and rewrote the MBR, restart and found that the settings which I have changed work, but the Vista boot screen still pops up.
Some have said it has to do with the connections to a LCD TV, but obviously that cannot be that case here. It has to be something with the boot up settings. Has anyone fixed this problem using EasyBCD or by using another method?
Thanks in advance.

Hay I have had exactly the same problem.
I dual booted with Vista install 7 on a different HDD. my vista hdd (with the boot manager ) has stopped working and I have to use bootrec to install the bootmgr onto the Windows 7 hdd.
Now all I have is the default vista splash! surely they havent jus stuck the new one over the old so when using recovery tools its gone forever!?
So what you're saying is that you have the boot screen of Vista, but it loads Windows 7?
If so, who cares? As long as it works. It's just a splash screen.

For me this was effected by the connection to the screen. It only does this in HDMI for me, otherwise it is normal.

I have the same problem, but I found the source of the problem :
You have a Acer Aspire.
Generally, Acer put an "Intel Turbo Memory" in their laptop.
The Intel Turbo Memory is a little memory, faster than your HDD, where is copied the files that Windows load.
But the Intel Turbo Memory isn't released for Win7, so I've found two hypothesis (if you have the ITM) :
- the loading is faster than the animation : so it replace by the Vista boot
- or because the ITM isn't releases for Win7, and the Win7' kernel is the same than Vista, so when ITM copied the files, he made the same boot than Vista.
BUT, I havn't found a solution for this.
Hope it will help you.
Mine has changed to the standard Vista splash screen after I copied NTLDR and NTDETECT to my XP partition after re-installing XP in my Dual-boot setup.
I also used Easybcd to reconfigure the system - not sure which action caused the 'problem'.
Stil, it serves to remind that Windows 7 is just a Vista Service Pack.
I have a similar problem with my Toshiba 8.9inch screen netbook. i'm guessing the animation requirers a higher resolution depth than the 600, just like messenger. I have found if i start with an external monitor, i get to see the animation, so it is on the system, it just doesn't like the 1024x600 screens...
if anyone knows how to force it to appear (cos' its far pretttier than the vista one), please let me know...
I encountered this about three times now with diff Windows 7 builds and the issue is definitely EasyBCD. Anyone know of a way to get the pretty Win 7 splash screen back?
Lol. This never happened to me
thats an interesting point beacause i have never hard on and my system definatly does not contain easyBCD, therefore I assume it has something to do with how that program effects the system. But that does'texplain why it has never appeared on m screen... any ideas from the mircosoft team???
