Hi there. This is the second MSI MAG X570 tomahawk I have had as the first arrived faulty, unfortunate but resolved easy enough. I had noted the tiny boot logo barely readable on a 49 inch TV on the prior board but hoped it was a part of the myriad issues it had, unfortunately the new board has the same quite fugly, scrunched up little logo.

Don't get me wrong, it's a minor cosmetic issue of no major consequence but on looking around reddit I'm not the only one looking for a way to replace it or at the very least make it a full screen logo rather than a tiny box in the middle of a massive screen. I want to see your logo blazing in red in full screen glory for example, rather than a barely legible tiny grey cube. Can a bios not do animated logos these days ? :o)

Like I say, nothing major, happy with the board, just a minor grumble I'd love to be able to change if possible. Cheers.

Well if you turn it off you get a windows one and yea it is not the best Logo the Dragon would have been way better. Use to be you could use a program to insert your own .BMP or .JPG file in to the bios file. I have not looked around for one yet as I was thinking of going hot Anime chick as the logo, if I find one that work will repost

Well looky but be warned you do at your own RISK 👉CLICK ME👈 The Pick of Anime Chick in swimsuit I selected takes up about 3/4 of the screen During Boot. Way Way Better
(Dear Mods if Pick is not appropriate please delete it)
I now have this as My Boot Screen

Moving to BETA/mod section. You're doing it at your own risk, and warranty may be void if MSI during RMA considers this as modification that could have damaged the board.

^ Well... as grateful as I am for that reply my friend, as nice paying customers can we get a clarification on that? lol, pretty please? little ambiguous. :o) If the entire bios code that controls all functions of the board is in tact and only the image is modified would they really invalidate it for that? If so, who do I need to bug at MSI to either ask for an official app from them to do it or for it to be a bios option. Currently its a bit like being sold a BMW and everything is absolutely perfect... apart from they used really horrible badges.

There is nothing to clarify. Modification whether physical or within software may void warranty. But it's up to MSI's decision in case you have to RMA the board and whether they deem it that your BIOS mod (even just changed splash screen picture) could have damaged the board. And that's the case for all manufacturers 🤷‍♂️
Also I don't think they will release any kind of app for that, otherwise they would have done this already ages ago.

True I guess but a shame that MSI do not let one do it via Dragon Center is why I had a FlashBack drive sitting ready to go justin case. I do remember it being a feacture with some boards many years back. As I used it often for my corporate clients so all there Computers booted with corporate logo.

It's a different story for OEMs and bulk order where some company orders 10k of same systems. But it's not my thing to excuse or explain why and why not. I've got my bootlogo modified, as my board has flashback function so in case of RMA I can flash original BIOD back and there won't be traces of modded version.

I also pulled the original boot logo off the bios and now know why it was so small and was quite surprised at just how small they went with it.
