Lenovo M82 Custom Splash Screen Logo Issue
#1
I'm at my wits on this and this seemed like one of the few places that maybe can help on the topic.

Lenovo bios flash package readme makes it seem as tho creating a custom logo should be a standard feature.  See below:

Code:
*****************************************************************************
* 3. Flash Program Options *
* *
* wflash2.exe [option1] [option2] ... [optionX] *
* *
* [OPTIONS] *
* /h Show help messages. *
* /rsmb Preserve all SMBIOS structures. *
* /clr Clear BIOS settings. *
* /ign Ingore BIOS version check. *
* /sn:nnnnnnn Update system serial number (up to 20 characters). *
* /csn:nnnnnnn Update chassis serial number (up to 20 characters). *
* /mtm:nnnnnnn Update machine type and model number (up to 25 *
* characters). *
* /tag:nnnnnnn Update system asset tag (up to 25 characters). *
* /uuid The flash utility will generate an Universally *
* Unique Identifier (UUID), replacing the one that *
* is currently in the system. *
* /logo:<filename> Change logo. The max supported size of logo file *
* is displayed on the screen during the compressing. *
* /cpu Update Intel CPU microcode. *
* /pass:nnnnnnn Input current system password. *
* /quiet Operating without physical presence. *
* *
* The following example shows how to update system asset tag number *
* to "1234567" use command line: *
* wflash2.exe /tag:1234567 *
* *
* The following example shows how to update bios and update system *
* asset tag number by one command: *
* wflash2.exe bios.cap /tag:1234567 *
* *
* The following example shows how to change the power-on logo. *
* wflash2.exe /logo:myfav.bmp *
* *
* Note: A flash update image using these program options should be *
* tested carefully before widespread usage. *

I perform that logo function but what I get an error "Child process failed. Return code: 74", see screen capture.  I am running cmd as administrator.  I have also tried a number of different image formats; png, bmp, gif.  It seems to accept the image fine, compresses within limits, but fails whatever the next step is.  Another thing I tried was performing this on a 32 bit instance of Windows 7.  Originally tried on Windows 10 64bit.    The image is a 640x480 image.

[Image: large?v=1.0&px=999]

I have no problem flashing the bios otherwise, but this option does not work for me.  Really hoping to get it to work.  Seems to be a common practice with lenovo laptops.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The image I'm trying to flash is here:
   

More than happy to compensate for help
