    Via Epia ITX motherboard BIOS Image

    Hi All

    I would like to have a logo instead of having the bios show at startup like you would get from a major manufacturer

    possible ?

    Regards
    Ian

    Wow thanks Curly,

    I'm going to do the Alfalogo on blackbackground next step will be the windows startup to show the same, now i'm going to run windows 98 so i can adjust the load order and then change the windows to shell to run the required front end - hey presto no windows.

    Good catch, sorry about that. Made a mistake guess it can be done, I've been reading a bunch about special bios for the EPIA boards and read a little about changing the image so thats where I got my information from.
