    Hi guys,
    Has anyone got any experience using GA Face Wizard.
    It came on my motherboards install disk and allows the user to change the bios boot image.

    I tried it with my new ga-ma69vm-s2 (dell slic modded) in Vista.
    It read bios file fine from board, allowed me to add my graphics file and save it but when I tried to load it back into rom I got a blue screen of death.
    The pc then would not boot to post screen just beeped several times.
    After a 10 minute panic and removing the cmos battery and shorting the clear cmos it cam back to life and got me to post screen which showed a cmos error. Anyway I used Q-Flash and reflashed and now eveything is back to normal.

    But................ I'd still like to add an image but obviously once bitten twice shy.
    With hindsight I should have modded the bios in Vista, but flashed in dos or q-flash.
    But i don't want to try again without some advice.
