    Motherboard SPLASH SCREEN


    I have an Intel D850EMD2 Motherboard where the splash screen-logo displayed at POST, boot-up, can be customized by the user to show whatever logo you'd like displayed.

    I precisely followed the instructions in downloading the application file: SPLASH07.EXE on the Intel web site. However, my problem is that when I go to extract or run SPLASH07.EXE I am unable to go any further, that is, to then extract SW.EXE in order to get the needed file, SPLASH.EXE. What I get instead, is the following message, listed below:

    C:\SPLASH\SPLASH07.EXE
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.


    Has ANYONE with an Intel D850EMD2 Motherboard been successful in developing and displaying their OWN, customized, original POST, boot-up, SPLASH SCREEN LOGO DESIGN?

    Thank you!

    i thought that utility was pretty datad, have you tried the LOGO_UTL.exe that you can get from intel instead??

    Thanks for your reply, but I don't think I can use the LOGO_UTL.exe application to install a customized splash screen logo for my model motherboard. Or, on the other hand, could I?
