Need help on a couple of things. I have an Asus P5E VM-DO. AMI BIOS.
Im able to change 1A(small AMI logo) and 0E(full screen logo), but I cant find where the small intel logo is located.
What I want to do:
Remove small intel logo in splash in bottom right hand side.
Remove Post massage "Press Tab to display post message" on bottom left hand side. I believe this can be accomplished thru AMIBCP but it keep crashing.. upon bios load.
I don't have that motherboard, but maybe this will help:
I have an Asus P6T Deluxe, and the logo is called "Reserved," and its module ID is 1E.
If you extract it, you can see in a hex editor that it is an image. I've found that it's some kind of strange format, but loading it in Photoshop as a raw image, and accounting for the header, etc, I can see the Intel logo, but it's backwards and upside down, like it was made to be read in the opposite direction. I'm sure if I were to reverse the bytes in the file, it would look normal. Additionally, it appears to be duplicated one time vertically, so the file is much larger than it needs to be. I'm not sure the reasoning for this, but maybe it's to make spotting it harder to do.
I have tried filling the file with 0's as well as FFh's and then replacing it in the rom, and reflashing. I've also tried simply removing the module 1E. In each of these circumstances, the intel logo is gone, but a black box where it would normally appear remains. There must be some other module or part of the bios microcode that is adding that black box. I'm still working on finding out where it is.
Hope this helps!
