MSI B350 Tomohawk (Is it possible to change the bios image)

 Share

I really dislike the splash screen / boot image on my b350 Tomohawk, i want to know if theres any way to change it to your own image, either by editing a bios file or something similar. I know it can be disabled but thats not what im looking for.

There's often a setting in advanced  BIOS settings to disable the splash screen on boot. I'm not sure where it would be but poke around and have a look.

In the thread I said that I'm aware of that setting and that's not what I'm trying to accomplish

I'm pretty sure that you can, you'll have to look around though. Evidently, I saw a video on a guy doing it with his thinkpad and he did it through flashing the BIOS.

Buy a BIOS-programmer (CH341A-based ones are fine and work with flashrom) on eBay, dump your current BIOS and make a backup, inspect the dump and find the offset of where the BMP-file is located, replace it with your own, write the modified BIOS back. Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy.

Sadly msi doesn't seem to offer software like that.
