Sorry, I don't have ME but you may get help if you post this in the Helproom.

The startup screen in ME is embedded in the file io.sys. However, a screen of your choice will override this if it's placed in the root directory of the boot drive[usually C:\].

So look in your C:\ drive for a file called logo.sys - this will be the offending startup screen. Move it elsewhere[if you want to keep it] out of that directory, or rename or simply delete it, and your original screen will be restored.

Just realised the first sentence is a bit ambiguous. Should read - The original startup screen in ME is embedded in the file io.sys.
