    Hi,

    I'm trying to change the OEM logo on my XFX 780i, but I'm not certain how to do it. It doesn't help that that CBROM marks the section as "Other".
    Can someone help me on this one please.

    Code:
      0. System BIOS       20000h(128.00K) 14326h(80.79K)  7B1N2P08.BIN

    I'm using a modded BIOS from: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/posts/97007

    How do I remove the original OEM image and replace it with my own? Using /logo adds a new field, which I assume won't make a difference because it'll automatically look for the image in the original location.

    Which cbrom are you using..

    you can probably extract by : cbrom 7B1N2P08.BIN /4046:0 extract
    then maybe cbrom 7B1N2P08.BIN /4046:0 release

    then after you have your picture..cbrom 7B1N2P08.BIN /4046:0 LOGO.BMP

    Using cbrom32 will do away with "other" designation.....

    I didn't have much knowledge about OEM that could enable me to give some useful information but this is really informative conversation going on. Thanks.

    What have you tried thus far. I have gotten quite a bit of info from crapped drives before with a few choice programs..:D:D

    XD Thanks for the offer, but I've given up on it now. I tried using RecoveryMyFiles, went into DOS to try copying the disk, tried mounting a sector-by-sector image of it, quick formatting it and then using recovermyfiles and I've tried mounting it into Linux from a LiveCD (worked on another computer). Nothing worked - but the 70GB of videos I can recover from the hard copies and off-site backups. It's just the 700mb worth of files with sentimental value that I couldn't get back, probably because they were encrypted so none of the file recovery programs would recognise the file headers anyway.

    But even still, there's no point now because I've wiped the drive completely and destroyed the sector-by-sector image I had.

    Thanks.

    Yep...If you encrypt the drive, you relegate yourself to losing all when it fails, or paying a crap-ton of money for maybe results..:D

    I have never seen the need for encrypting a personal drive, only some commercial applications..

    Backups are priceless, and drives are cheap!!!:D:p

    When you have a family like mine, and chat logs like mine, you don't leave them unencrypted!!! :p

    Yeah, once I get a job and am no longer flat broke, I'm going to get a few drives and set up RAID on everything mildly important.
