Why does my windows 7 install(s) randomly use the vista startup screen?

Why does my windows 7 install(s) randomly use the vista startup screen?

It seems that in a few of several windows 7 installs i've seen so far, it will use the vista startup screen as opposed to the new windows 7 one. Nothing else is wrong, it just uses the old one. Why does this happen?

I have had that same thing happen here, and although I don't really have a clue, I thought it might have something to do with the screen size or something. I get the fancy boot animation on my desktop which have a 1680x1050 screen, while my laptop which has 1024x600 gets a boring one.

Did you use an older version of VistaBootPro or a similar boot manager utility? They are often not compatible with Windows 7, and will use the Vista boot loader instead of the Win7 one.
