Boot Logo Build 17763 RRS feed

  • Question

  • The release notes for build 17763 say that it's possible to change the boot logo of Win IOT on startup...can this be changed to a different graphic or does 17763 just allow you to disable to Windows logo?  Does anyone know where the documentation to do this is?

    Thank you,

  • Hello Dan,

    As mentions in last post, you can refer to the sample(https://github.com/Microsoft/MS_UEFI/tree/share/MsIoTSamples) to change the boot logo on 17763.

    In addition, there are two components to the firmware update boot screen: the OEM logo and the update text.This topic provides guidance about how to configure each of these components, and information about how these components are passed to the firmware in a firmware update capsules.

    Best Regards,

  • Hello Dan,

    Which board did you use, Intel or ARM? The logo is embedded in ACPI BGRT table. For Intel platforms, that means getting board maker’s help to update BIOS.  ARM platform can vary where the BGRT resource is stored. 

    There is a sample for IoT Core for a loadable UEFI driver to change the boot logo.  This works for IoT Enterprise as well. But, this approach does require the ability to register a signed loadable EFI driver though. This driver is also dependent on the FW being a derivative of Tiano core.  That driver may or may not work on an arbitrary PC running a custom version of UEFI. And, many desktop class motherboards don’t support this. 

    Please refer to this topic which provides guidance about how to configure each of these components, and information about how these components are passed to the firmware in a firmware update capsules.

    Best Regards,

    Michael
