    Did you do an upgrade on the one that shows vista screen?

    No upgrade, did a fresh install on all 3 computers. Partition deleted, create a new one and format.

    The new sequence requires a native resolution higher than the 1024x600

    Probably for some reason at boot-up stage winload can't recognize that your video-card can support 1024x768 resolution...

    Try these two commands in cmd window, launched as admin:

    bcdedit /set GRAPHICSRESOLUTION=1024X768

    or (and?)

    bcdedit /set BOOTUX=Standard

    It's a 50" TV with a resolution of 1280x720.

    I guess I could hook up my PC monitor to it and see if it makes a difference.

    Not sure if that was directed towards me or muiz but I get this error

    The element datatype specified is not recognized or does not apply to the specified entry.

    Sorry, my mistake, should be spaces instead of =., this way:
    bcdedit /set GRAPHICSRESOLUTION 1024X768
    bcdedit /set BOOTUX Standard
    (case doesn't matter).

    But, yes, if your TV/display doesn't support resolution 1024x768, you'll see only vista bootscreen at VGA (640x480).
    BTW, parameter BOOTUX can be set to values DISABLED (just black screen at boot), BASIC (Vista green bar) and STANDARD (new win7 bootscreen).

    Neither one of those worked. Must be the x720 part not being high enough. It's only a boot up visual and I'm not going to worry about it. It's been working flawlessly for a week now and not a single crash. I like it.

    Thanks for the info. I'm not a novice and far from an expert. I learned a little something new today!
