Mass Deployment of BIOS Logo

2019-08-22, 9:57 AM

Hi Techies,

 

So I hope thats a simple question to one of yours.

 

I Plane to deploy a new Bios LOGO to all of ouer Clients. The Problem is, that we have divrent types of Notebooks. So is it posible to change the LOGO without a BIOS Update?

 

I hope someone hase a solution for that.

 

Regards

Hello!

We use the winflash64.exe from the bios update.

The parameters are: winflash64.exe -patch -logo Logo.gif -exit

 

Maybe this works universal for alle lenovo notebooks without the exact winflash64.exe for the model.

Thanks pilgi3 for the Replay but it dosnt work,

 

I get the following information,

 

C:\DRIVERS\Flash\r07uj26ww>winflash64.exe -patch -logo LOGO.JPG -exit
SCT Flash Utility for Lenovo
 for Windows V1.0.4.5
Copyright (c) 2011-2018 Phoenix Technologies Ltd.
Copyright (c) 2011-2018 Lenovo Group Limited.

SecureFlash BIOS detected.
Initialize Flash module.
Read current BIOS.
Replace logo. Index = 1.
Oem check

and thats all after the Reboot the old logo was showing.

 

The Resolution of the Image are 768x432px and filesize is 54,6KB

So I ceare a LOGO.gif to with same resolution and a File Size of 17,8KB with no changes on next Boot

ThinkBook doesn't support custom logo.  This is ThinkPad-only feature.
