    You should get a better visual effect if you can use the personalization.

    Might get a chance to look at an easy way for you to do that.

    Thank you so much, it definitely looks alot better than a black screen, any idea on how to get transparent?

    Don't know why you are getting that - works fine for me.

    You have the Aero theme - but no transparency - may be due to laptop video card.

    You could try going to devmgr, then rt click your card, browse to your win 7 partition driverstore - see if it will pick up the driver from there.

    I don't know weather it is something to do with my graphics card,

    Did you try rt clicking the video card in device manegr .update driver.Browse, then browse to your win 7 partition?

    It may load the drivers that way.

    Second Question - can you now change the desktop background?
    If you can, does it stick after logoff and on again.?

    I can now change the background and it sticks when I logoff, I'm searching my Windows partition for the drivers at the moment,
    I don't think it can find my graphics card at all, The first screenshot is from windows 8 and the second one is from Windows 7.


    EDIT: It didn't find anything in the Windows 7 partition for the drivers

Aero is Gone. For good.
Aero has disappeared in the newest RTM edition. Release Preview still supports it, but not any sign of a return.

Where's Aero?
I looked for Aero in the Help section and it said there are no results. Does the Win 8 Preview have Aero?
