    I have installed Windows 7 on my MacBook Pro 13 inch from 2010. I noticed when i start in clamshell mode i see a gray screen (standard Apple boot screen) on my external monitor. Then my screen goes blank and the Apple logo on the lid starts to shine white. When Windows 7 is booted up till the login screen then my external monitor has a signal.

    When i boot from Mac OS X i can see the whole boot process, in Windows 7 i can't see the bootscreen. Is it normal? If not what is the solution? Thanks :)

    Yes, that's normal. It does it on my early '08 MBP too.
