Re: Dear Lenovo, let the Y700 have a nice boot logo like the Y900 or Y520

2017-09-30, 8:58 AM
There was a way to change the bios logo to a customized one using a tool supplied by Lenovo itself called EzH2O
https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Welcome-FAQs-Knowledge-Base/Editing-InsydeH2O-EFI/ta-p/279868
but unfortunately it can't edit the Y700 15ISK *.FD file
I wonder why they stopped that cool feature, havin a customized bios boot logo would be very cool
hope anyone can help

Firmware files (*.fd) can be decompressed and edited with UEFI Tool: https://github.com/LongSoft/UEFITool/releases

 

The problem is that any such modified file will fail the signature check, which means the only way it can be flashed is by disassembling the laptop and programming the EEPROM chip directly.

 

(If there's a way around it I'm unaware of, please feel free to share.)

UEFI Tool is very complicated for me as an inexperienced user. EzH2O is very easy to use, It is developed by the the Insyde company and supposed to be working with any computer that has Insyde Bios.
I have successfully used EzH2O to change my Bios logo with ease on my older laptop (2010 model), there was no problem at all with signature, the only disadvantage is that you have to create a logo that is the same dimensions as the original one.
but when trying to open the Y700 *.FD image it shows an error message "Program can't find fv information in FD file"
may be an updated version of that application can do the job (the one in the link was made in 2008).
hope that anyone can solve the problem, or as you previously mentioned at least return back the black & white Lenovo logo that was used in earlier versions

I can't agree more even in the last BIOS update they did a really bad job on chosing such a boot logo.

For that I have created couple myself wishing that they can use in their next update.

may be we can vote for that for lenovo to listen. Option 1 animated, same as option 2 but static

I really like your design Feevoo, much better than the official one.

For the record: 

 

While by no means a proper solution, there is a way to change the default, ugly logo. I can post the details if anyone is interested, although it takes a hardware programmer, and the laptop has to be disassembled so that the system board can be put upside down to reach the SPI flash, which also means the thermal paste has to be reapplied afterwards (probably a good idea anyway).

Please make this happen Lenovo. The current boot logo of Y700 is hideously embarassing. :smileysad:
