    There is an easier non-obtrusive way to do it. Search for a program called Stardock BootSkin. Install the program and load as many bootscreens into the program as you want. Pick a screen, it loads, reboot and for here on out you will have whatever bootscreen you want without messing with your bios. Oh, the program is free
    Check out my hopefully useful site...

    It's still under design but it is functional

    Not sure if this logo will be there during BIOS init. You still have to write something to flash for that...

    BootSkin is for your Windows Loading screen NOT your bios.. But if you did both the same it would look pretty cool booting without changing screens..

    Pretty interesting thread. I was just curious if this can be done with all award bios...
    I have a shuttle board(nvidia motherboard chipset), not epia... and I would like to put a logo on my bootscreen for my carputer, a lot like my home computer which uses via KT400 chipset and has customizeable bootscreens built in.

    yeah I dont see any reason why not, if you download the awardmod tool in my first post and have a look inside the bios for your motherboard. I tried using the awardmod to replace the logo, but got a bad checksum error when trying to flash.. thats why I used the cbrom app. As long as your motherboard has a boot bios then it should work. I would prob try reverse the procedure, just to make sure the logo your replacing is infact the same format as the epia's.. ie.. open the bios with awardmod.. save the contents to a directory then convert the image to a .tif and open it with photoshop or what ever graphical program you have and check its the same that you see on screen, then if it is.. just change it to want you want and work backwards till you get a complete bios :-) let us know how you get on.

    cheers
