X220 Tablet - Bios update with custom logo fails when under winpe

Trying to update the bios on an X220 tablet, using the windows based update utility.  I have included logo.gif in the same directory as winuptp.exe .  If I run winuptp.exe from within Windows 7 Enterprise X64, the upgrade runs by successfully.  


If I run the same upgrade under WINPE x86, the upgrade fails with the following error:


Error: The custom startup image file is not correct for this system.


I get the error whether I run winuptp.exe in silent mode or normally.  If I remove the logo.gif, the bios will update successfully. 


Why would the bios upgrade fail when run from WinPE if there is a logo file?

hey swhitcher,

are you by any chance trying to do a custom splash / startup screen for your X220 ?

anyway, were you trying to update to bios version 1.19 ?
