You can't "make" your mobo support it. It's just if it has the option or not. Ones that do tipically come with software to change it.

Did your motherboard when you first got it come up with a logo? Like that? I switched mine off in bios, but there was an option for it.

If there ever was, then there should be a way to change it, though some motherboards don't have a logo at all, so wouldn't be possible no

Yeah it will be. The motherboard one would probably be on the bios chip or something itself, and wouldn't be affected by a piece of software in that way

I think our 'mate' might be confused not many motherboard support custom backgrounds ..... you COULD change your XP startup screen to it, there are tools out there!
