How can I change BIOS logo?

SECO logo is always displayed by default during the boot phase. In particular, there are two different logos:

  • splash logo: large icon centered in the screen when quiet boot is enabled;

  • small logo: small icon in the top right corner of the screen when quiet boot is disabled.

The AMI ChangeLogo utility allows both to replace SECO logo(s) with custom one(s) and to remove it.
The utility is distribuited in the following versions:

  • ChangeLogoWin.exe for Windows 32-bit

  • ChangeLogoWin64.exe for Windows 64-bit

Where can I find ChangeLogo utility?

ChangeLogo is part of the Bios tools package, it is available in the download section of each X86 product.

ChangeLogo and Bios Guard are not compatible.
Bios Guard is a security feature available on all Intel Core Platform.
For those platforms where ChangeLogo is not part of the Bios Tools, custom logo is supported by opening a support ticket in “Custom BIOS“ section.
