Change bios logo Lenovo 700-15ISK/700-17ISK

Hi all!

Many people do not like the new Bios Logo.

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Gaming-Laptops/UGLY-logo-new-BIOS-y700/td-p/3429182

Users would like to change the Logo on the old, familiar.


To my personal mail were asked to tell about replacing the Logo In the Bios
of Lenovo laptops 700-15ISK/700-17ISK.

 

Describe the procedure of modification of Phoenix BIOS.

Such BIOS used in laptops 700-15ISK/700-17ISK.


I will tell you this at the BIOS E5CN60WW.


Run update BIOS (file e5cn60ww.exe).

After unpacking the BIOS refuse to update it.
The Bios was unpacked to a directory C:\BIOS\E5CN60WW
In this directory there is a file winflash64.bat
WinFlash64 /file E5CN60WW.cap /cvar /bbl /bcp /sd /sn /silent /cac /cbp 30 /shutdown
Need this file to change, add the file name of the file Logo.
WinFlash64 /file E5CN60WW.cap /cvar /bbl /bcp /sd /sn /silent /cac /cbp 30 /shutdown /logo len-old.bmp

I had prepared 3 variants of the file Logo:
- len-new.bmp
- len-new2.bmp
- len-old.bmp

These files must be copied to a directory C:\BIOS\E5CN60WW
Then run the file install.bat

Re: Change bios logo Lenovo 700-15ISK/700-17ISK

thank you very much, murzik

 

in case someone want to

Change the logo with SAME BIOS VERSION:

•• Enter BIOS > Configuration > BIOS Back Flash - set to Enabled

Reduce logo size:

•• Resize image dimension using Photoshop, GIMP, etc

•• Save as PNG

•• Edit file using Microsoft Paint

•• Save as BMP (choose any Colour Bitmap to fit <30kB size)

Re: Change bios logo Lenovo 700-15ISK/700-17ISK

I have a X1 Carbon 2nd gen which doesn't get the new logo, Lenovo still kept the old in their latest BIOS updates.

 

Thank you for the logos, murzik. But i see a little bit of artifact in the logos around the letters, can you correct it? Your new colored logo doesn't have this artefact. When i flash it the artifact is not so strong, but still visible.

 

And can you also create a file with the red lenovo logo?

 

Thank you !

Hi b0_123!

I didn't make those pictures myself.

I found in the Internet suitable pictures and converted them into the necessary format.

The conversion was performed using the program XNVIEW.

Requirements for pictures are described in the BIOS_LOGO file.TXT which is inside of the BIOS file. For your laptop, these are the requirements:

Re: Change bios logo Lenovo 700-15ISK/700-17ISK

I tested it many times but i was not able to create a BMP file in a suitable quality which is accepted by the BIOS. The limit on X1 Carbon 2nd is 30 KB, while it is 60 KB on T570.

Try the JPG format.

The last picture I did in this format.

It turned out to be the size of 21295 bytes.
