    Windows boot logo is stretched - how to fix it?


    So now I have everything working as it should, I have just one little glitch:

    Windows boot logo deformation

    The above thread sums it up nicely. The pic on the left is what I get, the one on the right is how it should be. I am on GPT UEFA, and the one on the right is of course MBR.

    I've tried 'disabling secure boot' which seems to be the frequent solution, but it didn't work.

    It's an OCD thing - I'd like the boot logo to look proper.

    I know it has something to do with the graphics driver between the UEFI (BIOS) and Windows, but I've no idea how to resolve it.

    Any suggestions?

    Have you looked on the Manufacturers website to see if there is an updated BIOS or Graphics Driver? . . .

    > Official Asus Support Website
    > Help Page - Drivers etc

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Paul, thanks for the reply - the only VGA driver my mobo (MSI Z390 Gaming AC) support site offers cannot be installed on my system.

    And I'm on the most up to date BIOS/UEFI.

    No idea, it just says it's not suitable for my computer. Literally, that's basically what it says:

    If you're not using the graphics from your I7-4970K CPU, the onboard graphics drivers may not install.

    On my systems, I don't use the Windows boot logo, but rather the one provided by the motherboard manufacturer. If I set the boot logo to "auto" in the BIOS, it's not distorted. Whether that is a fix for your OCD issue, I can't guess.

    Yes, I sussed the onboard vga being dormant is probably why the drivers get rejected.

    Boot logo - it may have an 'auto' option but I only recall the 'fullscreen' or 'disabled' options. Next time I reboot I'll check that. Can't hurt.

    Thanks for the idea.

    Thanks for the idea.

    So I finally rebooted the PC and went into the UEFI - there was no auto option, but I noticed having the boot logo on gives a vendor (MSI) logo on the loader (including spinning cirle) that is the correct dimensions. It's only when I leave it off that the windows logo shows up and it all looks stretched.

    So I guess this is some kind of progress?
