Change your POST Bitmap

7 Comments Site news and Technology

Ever thought it would look cool if you had a custom image displayed when you turn on your laptop instead of the Dell logo? I found a utility from Dell which seems to work on most models, and replaces the default logo with a BMP of your choice. I've bundled the utility with a few splash screens, all you need to do is either follow the instructions to create a bootable USB key or burn the included ISO image and type 'spl2 imagename' at the prompt.

DELL POST Bitmaps

A few splash screens are included with this release, but I'll probably add more later.

    I don’t have one to test, but it seems to work on my Dell laptops. No problems with my XPS M1330.

    Hi, do you think your DELL POST Bitmap Changer will work with my old
    DELL Latitude C600 from 2003? The BIOS version is A23.
