Sweeeet. So we are a elite group (3 PPL) Who have custom BIOS logo's.

Lets form a Mafia gang, do hits on ppl who dont have custim bios logos, and threaten them with dead bioses. For protection they have to give us their BIOS Roms

I am really sleepy.............

Oh man its such a sigh of relief to get rid of that nasty Biostar T-Force logo! Thanks man! This worked a charm at 800x600. I'm thinking 1024x768 would work too though because the BIOS image still has a lot of room left according to the program.

EDIT: I decided to make mine non-OSX related for now. I'm sure I'll come up with an OS X mod sometime soon too but this will do for now.

For people who have windows and a ASUS board, you can simply use the flash utility that allows to change the boot picture and you can even change edit sounds but I don't remember the program's name

I haven't got mine yet but I'll be getting the ASUS P5LD2-VM and was totally stoked to hear that the BIOS can be flashed. I'll post my finding later once I do it.

Sorry I didnt reply for such a long time. I thought the thread was dead. Neway great to hear that yall got Custom Logos. BTW if u need my attn coz u hosed ur bios, PM me. I hosed mine twice :). The archive link seems to be fine. If it dont work, again PM me. I will Rapidshare it.

BTW has ne one got 1024 to worl yet. Let my old A7N8XE come back from ASUS. I will give it a try then. Techinically should work.

As for start up sound, some ASUS boards support a POST Reporter, which tells you why ur system is f*cked. Anyway now when the BIOS finishes POSTing, it says a weird message. If instead of this message, you put in the Apple Sound..........Imagine the possibilities. Why cant my AMD 2100 run OSX. Startup Sound and LOGO would have been perfect. Also some guy was making a H/W based solution for that.

I have a intel bios which comes up with a hude spash screen at the start. For some reason when I run that /d command the processor speeds up and doesnt do anything. Its a 915gag.

CBROM215.EXE Bios.bin /D

Yeah I did that but with my .bio file from intel since they dont offer a .bin file. The fan of the proccesor speeds up while the screen just displays a blinking cursor. I know its possible on the intel bios since on my last flash they changed the logo.

I've been looking for a few days to do it on an AMI as well, still haven't gotten anything to work (nothing to edit the BIOS, let alone flash it)
