The last couple of days I’ve been trying to change the boot logo on a Supermicro C7Z87 motherboard.
I’m able to extract the logo, edit it and save a new BIOS. However no matter what program I use, the flashing process stops just before it is completed.
Screen shot available here
When the motherboard is rebooted the logo is updated, however I do not trust that the entire BIOS have been updated.
I have tried with the follow programs:
ChangeLogo version 126.96.36.199
ChangeLogo version 5 ( file is just called ChangeLogo_v5.exe)
MMTool version 188.8.131.52
With all programs I’m able to replace the Logo in the BIOS, but they all hang when trying to flash.
I have also tried using different programs to edit the logo, but it does not change anything.
Programs i have tried:
Printshop Pro X8
I have tried with both 800 x 600, 640 x 480 resolutions in both 16 & 256 colors.
I have contacted Supermicro, but they cannot send me the ChangeLogo version 5.00.0006 they use, as it is a licensed program.
Can anyone help? Can someone try to mod the BIOS for me? (So that if that works, I know I’m doing something wrong)

I trust you modified the right file, based on your answer. There is one file with images:
In order to avoid any other issues, you should start with an image similar to the one inside. The original image is BMP with 640 x 480 x 8 BPP, yours is JPG with 800 x 600 x 32 BPP. I’m not saying that this was your error, but something to consider. I have attached a fixed image, just in case. My guess is that the real issue was with flashing ME. Open flash.bat and remove /ME, by changing 5th line to “AFUDOS.EXE %1 /P /B /N /K /R”. Your ME is probably already updated to that version and even if it isn’t, this is an entire separate issue, which you must tackle in ME thread.
