same here,

no probs on an msi k8neo4 amd 939 board. just had to rename the logo.bmp to the
filename.bmp as shown in the bios after running that cmd /d thing.

Only thing I would like to eliminate now are the commandlines between the two logo-screens :turbin:

And for the startup sound:

I thik there must be some kind of easy solution, that some cheap device plays a sample, when you turn on the puter.

This is already possible with Asus boards. If you turn the speech notification on
instead of the bios beep codes, you can configure it, to always play a sound if you
turn on the PC. And just more: afaik it is possible to upload your own .wav soundfile
( 8-bit or something).

:)

Hello, This project interests me, but i don't have a award bios or any of the other ones mentioned. I have and intel D865GLC motherboard. I've done some preliminary googling, and it looks like Intel has a program to do this with. I will try it out and let everyone know my results :) wish me luck

for those of you with wide screens here is a 640*480 16/10 aspect ratio BMP/8bit logo which works fine with my Gigabyte mobo (gigabyte provides an easy BIOS modding tool : facewizard, don't know if it works on other Award bios based mobo)

you should goolge for it, I found a guide on how to do this there, but it will be a bit complicated anyway.

Back to topic, for those who like to change their Bios logo, here are 2 logos ofr AMD X2 and Intel with 4x3 aspect ratio

here is also the 16/10 Intel boot logo I'm using now (white Apple on black background + intel logo)

I hope you guys like these logos. They are pretty simple yet looking nice IMHO

All these logo are 640x480@8bit BMP, cbrom.exe compliant for Award/Phenix Bios.


now, CBROM for dummies :

check with your mobo's vendor / bios revision for compatible CBROM version, find suitable version CBROM.EXE on google and download.
in Windows, run CMD and CD to your CBROM directory, where you also copied your BIOS file to flash and the logo you want to use.

command to add your logo to your bios with CBROM is :

CBROM.EXE biosfile.rom /logo logofile.bmp

biosfile.rom is the bios you dumped from your mobo, or any bios you want to use with your mobo, so change it to the name of your bios file...
/logo is the cbrom switch to add BMP 640x480@8bit logo to bios file
logofile.bmp is your logo, so change it to the name of logo file you want to add in your bios file !

concrete example for my intel mobo :

CBROM.EXE 945gms2.f3 /logo intellogo.bmp

now you can flash the new bios file to your mobo and enjoy your logo.
beware that CBROM overwrites your bios file, so a make backup of it before modding it...

Relax Bro. I appreciate the effort made by people to mod their BIOSes. It sure is risky, but in the end, a few people out there have awesome mac based BIOS Logos.

Thanks to all of you for sharing your Logo's.

BTW My logo is still what I had posted originally.
