Is there a boot screen to see somewhere?

It hasn't changed. See the first screenshot here.
That doesn't seem right... why would they leave it as an off-center indeterminate progress bar? It should at least say windows on it somewhere...
Maybe they gave him a copy without the boot screen so he wouldn't leak it early or something.
Whoops, we forgot the boot screen?

- Limited to 16 colors (there are hacks, but they're unreliable and can fry CRT monitors (as I experienced)), and Vista is all about the future, not much point spoiling the Windows "experience" by shoving a 16-color Windows Vista logo in people's faces
- I heard Vista now Hibernates instead of Shutting down by default, so you'd only see this screen for 2...3 seconds tops
- If you don't like it, you can always add /noguiboot /sos for Linux-esque geekery
Yeah high res boot screens do break some cards, I think they use VESA to do it before drivers are loaded? Considering VESA's total lack of use now adays, I wouldn't be surprised if its not implemented properly on certain modern cards.
Edit: Maybe after EFI becomes the norm we'll see better boot experiences.
I like it this way, better than trying to put a crap-looking logo on a low-res low-color display mode.
