Hello there,

I installed windows 7 under bootcamp, but at the logging screen I cant get to fit the whole screen, and it shows like an inch less on each side. This only happens on the logging screen, once at windows, it shows in fullscreen.

Here the image:

its because the windows 7 login screen is not meant to be 2880x1800. There just isnt enough graphic to fit the screen...lol

Not being rude, but I doubt this is the problem, anyone else can confirm this?

It looks like Windows isn't actually running at full resolution. Have the graphics drivers been installed yet? (Look at the other threads in this forum for instructions on how to get the latest NVIDIA drivers)

Does this for me too, only on that resolution.

I think it's to do with the fact that the Boot Camp control panel thingy hasn't been loaded until you're actually logged in.

Yes I did, as I said, once logged in its all normal. Not a big deal but certainly annoying

I see other posts where people have upgraded the NVIDIA drivers. Maybe this is why?

It is also possible that the graphic just isn't big enough as gentlefury suggested.

that is a VERY fuzzy picture, but what the OP was describing is what mine does too. It has a very very small login icon, and a black border around it.
Yea sorry about the image, is the best my iPhone can do lol.

It's because of the resolution and scaling you have it set at.

It did the same for me when I set it at the full resolution with 200% scaling.
