I don't know of any program that hacks custom BIOSes but this one hacks Award BIOSes. Keep in mind that editing the BIOS is NOT safe and can totally trash your entire system.

I am also working on the same thing. I started a thread here http://forum.osx86pr...showtopic=19006 about it but I am stuck trying to figure out how to make my bmp a EPA 2.0 @ 640x480..

EDIT: I also am using the program from http://prdownloads.s...ll.zip?download to do this it has allowed me to extract the fullscreen bootlogo and will let me replace it but I have noticed when I do it it says on the original in EPA Info it is ver 2.0 if I place my 640x480 logo in it's place it says EPA ver unknown and then if I save it the BIOs becomes corrupted. I got the file size as close to the original logo as possible but still not happy.. I tried it smaller and it still corrupted. I believe the problem to be something with that EPA stuff. BMP2EPA only works with the energy star logo. We need something that can convert 640x480 BMP to EPA...
