    Hi all,

    On both my 2009 Macs, the 'Windows' icon on my boot screen shows up in a weird, pixelated font. 'Macintosh HD' and 'Recovery Drive' are totally normal.

    My 2006 MacBook did the same, but my friend's 2010 MacBook Pro doesn't do it.

    Is there something weird about the way I'm installing Windows, or does anyone else get this:

    Have you some kind of boot manager installed or did you just use Boot Camp Assistant to install Windows?

    Btw, is that a screenshot or a photo?

    I used Boot Camp.

    That's just a mock-up image I made in Pixelmator to demonstrate the effect.
