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

    Thats the thing... this shuttle bios doesnt have a logo... its the old school type ones that show like the post, count the ram, device enumeration... no logo ever shows up.
    Maybe if I update the BIOS?

    Since we're talking about the bios booting...Is it possible to disable the loading of the DMI Pool or speed it up? It's already low to return from Hibernation, but having to wait for the DMI Pool to finish adds extra unneccesary seconds.

    Damn, I missed my EPIA with standby. Only too 3 seconds from iginition to music. Too bad this Insight P4 board doesn't do standby the way EPIA does it.

    Ill have to look around the BIOS later... Damn Phoenix/Award Bios... still looks like a computer from the early 80's.

    Well I think I got it, but I haven't flashed yet. The tif conversion output a logo.bmp file. Then I used cbrom to insert. I got this message:
    Adding logo.bmp ...............................................5.7 %
    Any idea if this means that it was successful? I opened up the bios file with the sourceforge program and I guess it looked fine-showed the logo.bmp file. The tif file I converted was 310 kb and didn't know if this would be too big. Just don't want to mess anything up.

    I have my BIOS logo, background, and bootscreen all the same, looks pretty cool. I wish I could just get rid of the damn windows "windows is starting up" screen."

    Thats just for your windows boot screen not the motherboards!!
