So I'm not sure what is going on in this case.

Oh No you're right. I am mistaken (Apologies!). The boot-up animation
doesn't appear on the VNC console.

I tested it an re-checked it on both XP 64 and Win 7 64.

Right. And since you aren't side-loading the GPU BIOS, I would guess
the boot-up animation doesn't appear at all. It runs headless right
up to the point where the GPU driver loads in Windows.
