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

2017-05-11, 4:04 AM

This is the (animated) boot logo on other Lenovo Gaming Laptops, notably the Y900 and the Y520:


It is trivial for Lenovo to change the logo, so how about using the Gaming one in the next update?

 

Or at least bring back the neutral one that was used up to CDCN37WW:

 


Thank you for considering this request.

Hello Hyperfish

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.


We can only hope they will change it, unfortunately that is not a great choice for the background of the logo...

 

If maybe it wasnt just cropped but instead blended into the black background it might look better.

 

But this current design is really not very appealing, I wonder why they decided to go with this one, compared to the gaming one I guess this is meant to be more of a business look, I`m just really not a fan of the borders around the logo.

 

Either way, we can only hope for the best, prepare for the worst :) .

I cannot agree more that the boot logo needs a fix.

 

Everytime I watch my machine boot up it just gives me the heebie-jibbies. With the ugly logo that stands out from the black background, the logo looks like those from decades ago.


It just breaks my heart to see such a downgrade from the previous bios. Since I use the machine every day, it is too risky for me to downgrade the bios, so all I can do is cry TT

I would be very happy for lenovo to take this request seriously and make the logo the same as the other laptops previously mentioned.

Bump.

 

Considering there will have to be a BIOS update soon due to the bug discovered in Intel Skylake CPUs, can we please have Lenovo do something about the logo as well while they're at it.

Lenovo, please change that hideous boot logo to the way it was before! This one is absolutely monstruous!

I can no longer edit the original post but would like to add that the ugly logo has since appeared in the -ACZ (AMD) version of the Y700 as well, apparently starting with BIOS CECN48WW. What I originally wrote in the first post, referred to the -ISK (Intel) version.

I will second that it needs a nice boot logo. It is a simple thing to do for a premium laptop. At least the plain black and white one looked sharp. The current one looks silly.

Hi

 

I also agree that the Legion PCs should have a cool BIOS and Boot logo !!!!

 

I will also tell Jeff from https://www.twitch.tv/lenovolegion about this :)

I agree with the people saying that the boot up logo of cdcn54ww bios version of the lenovo ideapad y700-15isk is not that appealing nor not that presentable. I have been using lenovo laptops since I was in high school (and now I am working as a software engineer), and never failed to disappoint me. But since I updated to the latest bios version of my y700-15isk, I found the logo very annoying since then, and also, it makes my ideal laptop not so ideal anymore. I may be exaggerating a little bit but it really bothers me in this matter.

 

I use lenovo for a reason. And that is its ability to be elegant and at the same time to be simple. It really pains me to know that I have a high end and high specifications of a laptop, and yet its boot up logo is not that great.

 

A logo represents everything. And a great company should have a good logo too.

 

Just a man's humble opinion.

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

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:
