windows 7Sometimes, while booting Windows 7, you might not see the usual, nice, animated boot screen which is replaced by the boring and flat Windows Vista boot screen. This happens when the user adds a Windows 7 entry in the boot menu or when he tries to  repair the startup menu by using Windows Vista DVD. Here is a quick hack to repair this issue and revert the boot screen back to the original one belonging to Windows 7.

  1. First of all you need to gain access to the Command Prompt with Administrator rights. To do that follow these steps:
    • Click Start.
    • Locate the Command Prompt under All Programs – Accessories. Right click on its icon and from the menu click Run as Adiministrator.
  2. In the Command Prompt’s black window type bcdedit /set {current} locale en-US or alternatively you could also try to type this other command bcdboot %WinDir% /l en-US
  3. Before to type the above-commands don’t forget to change the en-US to the language of your Windows 7 such as: ja-JP, de-DE, es-ES, pt-BR, zh-CN, zh-TW, fr-FR, fi-FI.
  4. Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.
