I had BOINC running on a Raspberry Pi 5 without any problems, with the Pi booting from a microSD card. I just finished setting it up to boot from an m.2 SSD, installed BOINC, and when I go to open it, the window for BOINC is a mess. Same OS - the official Raspberry Pi OS, 64 bit, EVERYTHING the same except the boot source. Attached are screenshots - one of it running off the microSD card (which has been reinstalled and the Pi set up to boot from it), the other when it was running on the SSD. Both the microSD and SSD have BOINC Manager 7.20.5 running - which shows as "Pre-Release". Has anyone else had this issue? Links below show messed up screen when using SSD, and functioning properly when using microSD.

Looks to me like a screen corruption, perhaps video driver corruption. Does it only happens when BOINC runs, or on use of other programs as well?

It ONLY happens when I'm running it from the SSD, and the screen is fine until I open up BOINC Manager. Other applications on the Pi open fine, it's just BOINC Manager that's the issue. I reinstalled the microSD card and changed the boot back to that, and it's running and displaying BOINC Manager fine now.

BTW, the image of the messed up screen, you can see that the background on the Pi is fine, just the BOINC Manager window is messed up, and actually the photo where it's showing fine, that was after I replaced the microSD card and changed the boot order on the Pi.
