Set bios defaults to Add logo to old Award Bios on EVGA Classified
#1
Hi,

I have an old Evga X58 E759 Classified that I am trying to mod and add a logo to the boot screen. I have gotten as far as actually adding the logo such that after the flash was done I saw the logo on the screen, but now everytime i boot the system no more logo on the screen. I think its because the bios defaults to disable the logo. If there was another way to enable the logo as a default it would be great. Similar older bioses like the E758 from similar boards by same company actually have that option but not mine nor can I find it in Modbin. If anyone can help?

Heres my bios mod so far:

is there a way you can set start up options like with the ami tool if you set the value for the display of the logo in award bios editor then you can probably just reflash it and then you set the default as thats what the tools are for i believe lol im not sure though i did that with my ami bios and have been using raw hex editing for a large part of file identifcation and reverse engineering of how its put together still baffled how this is somehow c code hahah i guess it all looks like crap in hex or binary anyway lol but yeah id say set the defaults yourself with bios editor and reflash i set mine as default and was able to get the logo to display everytime then turned off quick or quiet boot to let the logo diplsay a bit longer i have ami bios though so not sure

Well using Modbin6 to study the changes on each menu setting I was able to narrow it down to what piece of code segment inside the setup program called _Item.bin and graft the logo code from the old bios onto a useless bios option. This resulted in getting my Full Screen Logo option back but it didnt do a [censored] thing to affect real change. Possibly they rewrote the register addresses and it no longer does anything. At least its not bricked..

Thanks. Really need an expert on Award bios Setup menu structure to comment on what each field represents each segment. I already identified most of the string referrences and selection option referrences. If I knew the which one referred to a menu variable I would be golden. Fwiw I suspect they removed the variable referrence so even if I set it on or off it does nothing because the activation code is gone.

Thanks.

ive been getting into award bios more lately I had another look I can attempt some cpu mods on this board this is lga 775 correct sorry ive been busy for a while I was going to reply sooner the award logo is a standard .bmp and the option can be edited in some versions of my tools others not so easy but I can probably get a ok checksum and send you modded bios if you wanted to try it .

just to clarify also I'm just asking you to send the .bin in the rom folder that you download from manufacturers website and I can attempt to add the logo for you from a fresh bios u should have gotten som sort of checksum error but item.bin doesn't contain any logos in cbrom I can see logo unchanged original evga.bmp

Thanks for the offer but going to take the board apart and dissassemble it or put it in the basement graveyard of old machines and forget about it. My latest mod to get NVME working failed miserably so going to let go. A decade of service well worth it. Thanks.

PS: While messing around with logos I did get the logo to stick for a while but it didnt last. Thanks.

no problem if you are able to to reflash bios someday and try again let me know id be happy to help and hahah sell that beast for a decent price i look for boards like that specifically so i can do mods sick board of its time for sure id do the work to unbrick it just for nice mid end machine haha have a nice day ! also if you try recover method of holding keys down on boot using ps2 keyboard you could probably recover that machine on a day you felt like it hahah done it many times some very weird ways myself lol evga is usually good for including some sort of recovery routine in a bios if not hahah may it rest in peace !!!
