BIOS-Bootlogos

A short instruction, how to create EPA BIOS-Boot-Logos and Fullscreen BIOS-Boot-Logos under Bios-versions from AMI, AWARD and PHOENIX, with Bios-Tools like: AMIbcp, AMIFlash, AWDFlash, WinFlash, WinPhlash, CBROM, and my Freewaretool BMPtoEPA.

Insert Boot-Logo into BIOS Update file
Boot-Logo collection
Edit Boot-Logo (EPA-Format) with BMPtoEPA
Create Boot-Logo with Paint Shop Pro
Boot-Logo Software (CBROM, Flash tools)
Write BIOS Update file onto BIOS-Chip

Use this instruction and software at your own risk! A Bios-Update is always dangerous, because a power failure or software error during the flash process could make your Bios unusable, and have the consequence to reprogram the Bios-Chip by an external service like biosflash.com.

Extract Boot-Logo out of BIOS Update file

Bios-Tool: CBROM v2.15

CBROM, a small software from AWARD (PHOENIX), has functions to read, edit and insert each segments inside a Bios Update file. CBROM works under DOS and the Windows command line. To show all parameters, go to the command line (DOS-Prompt) and insert: 'cbrom215.exe'.

First of all we need a Bios Update file to edit the current logo, and the parameter /D to show all ROM segments. In our example we use the BIOS Update file 'N24LD505.BIN' from the DFI mainboard 'LanParty NFII Ultra B'. The input of 'cbrom215.exe n24ld505.bin /D' shows:

The picture above shows the small EPA-Logo (EPALogo.bmp) on Pos.10, and the Fullscreen logo (LanParty.bmp) on Pos.11, and also the original and compressed size in kilobytes.

EPA-Logo extraction:
Extract the small EPA-Logo with 'cbrom215.exe n24ld505.bin /epa extract'.

Fullscreen-Logo extraction:
Extract the Fullscreen with 'cbrom215.exe n24ld505.bin /logo extract'.

Bios
The extracted BMP files have a different format as the normal Windows/OS2 BITMAP format! It is a special AWBM format. I.e. a graphics program like PaintShopPro cannot open these BMPs.

Insert Boot-Logo into BIOS Update file

Bios-Tool: CBROM v2.15

Now we use CBROM to insert our self created (normal) Bitmaps. Because CBROM is able to translate normal BMPs into the special AWBM format. All we have to do is to create (see below) a Bitmap file in a specified size and format.

EPA-Logo insertion:
'cbrom215.exe n24ld505.bin /epa filename.bmp'

Fullscreen-Logo insertion:
'cbrom215.exe n24ld505.bin /logo filename.bmp'

If you get an error message like 'not enough space!', you have to edit your Bitmap a second time with a graphics program either to reduce the Bitmap size, or to use less colors as a result to get a better data compression.

Boot-Logo collection

A collection of various EPA-Logos: bios-epa-logos.htm.

Edit Boot-Logo (EPA-Format) with BMPtoEPA

BMPtoEPA - download and howto

Create Boot-Logo with Paint Shop Pro

Now we create/edit a Bios-Boot-Logo. In this example i use the graphics program PaintShopPro from Corel, but you can use your favorite program as well.

The different formats for Fullscreen and EPA-Boot-Logos:

Color depthRes. (width x height) Size (KB)
Fullscreen-Boot-Logos:
16 colors 640 x 400 pixel 117
640 x 480 140
800 x 600 234
256 colors 640 x 400 pixel 251
640 x 480301
800 x 600 469
EPA-Boot-Logos:
2 colors 136 x 84 pixel 1,7
136 x 1262,5
16 colors 136 x 84 pixel 5,7
136 x 1268,5
Dont save the Windows/OS2 BITMAP in RLE-compressed format! If the Boot screen does not show the logo in a correct way, you can try other sizes.

Start PaintShopPro, create a new file and choose one of the above formats with the right resolution and color depth.

During your first tries: use black as background and white as foreground color. After you have created your logo, save the Bitmap file (BMP) without RLE-Compression.

Fullscreen-Logo: start CBROM to insert the Bitmap into your Bios-Update file.

EPA-Logo: start the Windows tool BMPtoEPA, convert the Bitmap into the EPA-format, save it and use CBROM to insert the Bitmap into your Bios-Update file.

Finally write the Bios-Update file onto the Bios-Chip.

Boot-Logo Software (CBROM, Flash tools)

CBROM Download: www.award.com or Google

Version info:
CBROM-Version: 1.x for Award v4.x (old)
CBROM-Version: 2.x für Award v4.51+v4.6x (old)
CBROM-Version: 6.x für Award v6.x (new)

Use the flash tool from your mainboard manufacturer to program your Bios-Chip!

Write BIOS Update file onto BIOS-Chip

Please read my Bios-Update-Instruction or use the instructions from your mainboard manufacturer.

A guidance how to create a Boot-CD (MS-DOS v6.22) to perform a BIOS update.

see also: BIOS-Update Howto: step-by-step instruction
see also: BIOS Update per bootable USB-Stick
see also: BIOS Update per DOS-Boot-Diskette

Important: this method simulates/emulates a floppy drive. Due to the size limitation of a 2.88MB floppy disk, you can only use a BIOS file and flashtool whose total file size is max ~2.7MB!

Recommendation: i prefer to use the method BIOS Update per bootable USB-Stick!
A bootable pendrive has no size restrictions and more importantly: you can create a BACKUP before updating the BIOS - and that's always a good idea!

The following tools are needed:

  • CDBurnerXP - free CD-Burning software, Download from manufacturer's website
    Attention: download the CDBurnerXP-Version without OpenCandy or installCore! (Adware!)
  • UltraISO - Trial version, Download from manufacturer's website
  • Ultimate BIOS-Boot-Edition:
    - msdos.img (the boot image contains only the most important MS-DOS operating system files)
    DOWNLOAD Ultimate BIOS-Boot-Edition - 1.2MB
  • Flashtool - BIOS-Programming-Software (.EXE as file extension), which programs the BIOS file onto the BIOS-Chip, and the BIOS file. Both files must be downloaded:
    - Mainboard, bought in its original box: from the mainboard manufacturer website, or
    - Notebook or brand PC: from the notebook/brand PC manufacturer website.
    Both files must be specially designed for the DOS Operation system! If the manufacturer offers only files for Windows, you have to risk the BIOS update either directly under Windows, or you can re-program your old BIOS-Chip, or purchase a new, programmed BIOS-Chip.

Instruction to create a bootable CD

  • Tip: use - if possible - a rewritable CD-RW.
  • Open the Ultimate BIOS-Boot-Edition and extract the boot image file (folder boot_cd) msdos.img.
  • Install and start the Trial version of UltraISO.
  • Open the boot image file msdos.img with UltraISO.
  • Rename the filename of your flashtool and the BIOS file, if they have more than 8 characters (not the file extension!).
  • Copy the flashtool and BIOS file (with Drag&Drop) to the other existing files (see picture).
  • Save the boot image file and close UltraISO.
  • Start CDBurnerXP and choose Data disc:
  • Create the text file dummy.txt with any content (1 byte is enough) and drag&drop it to the compilation. (Reason: CDBurnerXP cannot successfully create a CD if there is no file in the compilation)
  • In the CDBurnerXP main menu Disc choose the entry Boot options...
  • In the following window (see picture) enable the checkbox Make disc bootable and insert the path to your boot image file msdos.img.
  • Change the Emulation type to Floppy 2.88MB.
  • Click the OK-Button to close this window.
  • Now you can use Ctrl+B to burn the CD.
The DOS system files are normally invisible, because their file attribute is set to hidden. If you would like to show these hidden files, you have to enable the option: 'Windows-Explorer / Tools / Folder options / View / Show hidden files and folders' and to disable the option 'Hide protected operating system files'.

Starting the BIOS-Update from CD-ROM

  • First, go into your BIOS-Setup and change the Bootsequence to CD-ROM (search for an option like Bootsequence,First Boot Device, or something similarly).

  • Insert the CD and restart your PC. If all went well - MS-DOS starts and you can see the famous DOS-Prompt (A:>).

  • Now you can start the BIOS update, but remember: you can't backup your old BIOS version onto a CD! But if your harddisk has a FAT16- or FAT32 partition, it would be a good idea to copy your 2 BIOS files to this partition, and to start the update/backup from your harddisk.

Worked after I figured it out. Thank you

biosflash 1.May.2018 06:59

@Michael Purcell
.IMG is the correct (default) extension for UltraISO and CDBurnerXP too. Why should you want to save the data compilation to .IMA? If you want to save it, use .ISO.

Michael Purcell 1.May.2018 06:40

People had trouble with this because you have the wrong file name suffix for the Boot Image file. You wrote: In the following window (see picture) enable the checkbox Make disc bootable and insert the path to your boot image file msdos.img. That was the original boot image, but the saved image file is now msdos.IMA.

Blobk 19.Mar.2018 17:41

I could not get UltraISO to make the disk bootable using the Msdos you suggested. Just kept copying the dummy file and nothing else :(

@sslinux
A new chip should be your last chance, because i dont see any other solution.

sslinux 21.Nov.2015 09:09

Hi , I did everything and there is a blank screen again and again.. pc works , screen doesn't show up.. cd trying to read but nothing happens.. The reason I'm trying to do this I update the wrong version of bios.. tried ps/2 keyboard it doesn't work.. What I should do after this ? Do I need to change the bios chip ?

Jim 2.Oct.2015 22:19

When I try to drag my 4mb flash/rom file the system says the 'disk image is full' so I cannot add the files I need.

Christoballer 8.May.2015 00:15

IF you are receiving the hresult error that HARA Mo mentions above, download and run the portable free version of deep burner. Worked like a charm for me.

Rik 11.Apr.2015 07:41

This does not work my freaking bios file is 16,384kb the iso image programs says the disc is full wtf so how can i do this?

biosflash 6.Mar.2015 09:41

@Rodger Grady
Don't insert date + time, press ENTER. You can also try another keyboard.

Rodger Grady 6.Mar.2015 09:35

I was able to make the disc and booted fine. Then it asked me to put in the date and time. The numb lock doesn't work and nither do the fkeys. What do I do know??

hdh 26.Feb.2015 03:45

@Hara Mo, @palxgr : Same problem here as well. This really sucks.

palxgr 11.Jan.2015 14:47

@Hara Mo I have the same problem. Were you able to resolve it? P

Hara Mo 30.Sep.2014 20:03

Dear, I cannot succeed to burn the cd, it says : 'you did not add any files to the compilation. Do you want to burn the disc anyway? I click yes. Allow making changes to the disc later is selected (but tried also 'prevent further changes to the disc(finalize)'. Clicekd burn disc, then an error occured: most likely the disc is not usable, it's a brand new dvd disc, first tried with two old rewritable cd , same error. error detail: Hresult: 0x80040295

Aaron 24.Sep.2014 01:59

Thanks you so much! I was struggling to upgrade my Gigabit P55 motherboard bios as i have 64bit windows 7 and no floppy drive. I tired heaps of ways and couldn't get it to work. Your method above (except the burner software) worked like a charm! Thank you for providing a great community service! Maybe think about adding a 'Donate' button to donate through paypal as i certainly would!

@Bill Meyer
I don't know. Maybe you have made something wrong?

Bill Meyer 15.Oct.2013 15:04

My Acer Aspire 5110 USB ports are unusable. Any USB device connected showing in the device manager as unrecognized, device error 43. I have a slim hope that updating the Bios to the latest version 3.13 will solve the problem. I followed the instructions to make a boot CD/DVD. I copied my bios files to the dos files as shown in your picture and saved it. When I boot up I see the A> prompt as expected. When I list the files on the DVD only see the file 'Command.com'. If I put another data dsta in the CD rom drive with my Bios files they don't don't show. The disk looks empty. Any thoughts on this..
