well, I've used gigabyte facewizard on my K8N-SLI board to insert a logo. At first, there was NO LOGO AT ALL in the bios file... facewizard just added it in last position in the bios. There is even a new option in bios now to activate or deactivate the logo at boot !
This was quiet stressing to do that at first but it works for me.

It MAY WORK for others gigabyte motherboards as well

Not to crush any souls here but a mac doesnt start with the apple logo... Its just a whiteish grayish screen then it goes to the apple logo when OS X starts

So I decided to make a couple of test logos. If someone wants to use one of the generic ones and let me know how it comes out that would be pretty awesome.

Yup, Face Wizard works like a charm on the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L! Thanks! :D I added a mini-tutorial to my guide here:

U.C, do you think I can change the BIOS logo of my MSI Wind Netbook using the method you described?

Someone should make the old school Happy Mac bootup logo.

Happy Mac At Wikipedia

On the standard grey screen.

Download the correct bios from GB web site and extract logo from that?

Here are two 8-bit/256-color 640 by 480 images.
black w/ white apple, color BIOS hotkeys - .bmp

grey w/ black apple, color BIOS hotkeys - .bmp

Note: Don't use the png images that are visible - they are just eye candy for the page. Face_wizard and gigabyte boards require the bmp type image.

Waldo, I loved your bios screen, here is an addition. (8bit-256color, 640x480 with ~16x9/10 effect for widescreen - gray Decepticon) - use the attached BMP file, not JPG or PNG.
