Restore old boot logos / use graphical bootloader

    Question

  • Hello there,
    I recently installed Windows Developer Preview (WDP) on my second partition, with the other one having Windows 7 on it. After installing WDP I couldn't boot Windows 7 anymore (didn't know I had to create a new partition for WDP in order to dual boot out of the box), however I could fix that very fast with EasyBCD, which I can highly recommend to anyone having the same problem.

    My question: After adding the entry for Windows 7 in the bootloader I shortly got to see the new graphical bootloader. However after setting Windows 7 as my default OS, the graphical bootloader was gone - is that supposed to be this way? Can I restore it?

    Unfortunately the Windows 7-boot animation is also gone now - can I restore that as well? But well, no harm done - both versions boot just fine.

    Best regards
    Jens

  • Hey Jens,

     

    The operating system that you dictate as the default operating system will control which interface you see when you start your computer.

     

    While booted into Windows 7 you could try using the commands described in the link below by Uewd in their post from January 20, 2011 to get the Windows 7 boot animation back:
    Windows 7 Boot Screen Displays Vista Green Loading Bar

     

    Hope that helps.

  • Hello,

    Just do like me! Use another HDD to install preview or beta; do this hdd the first hdd in your bios and do your install; if u want to go back to your standard configuration, just change in your bios.

    It's the best thing to do.

    (excuse my bad english)
