    When I try to create the UPD File, I get a error:

    C:\Kontron\tools\$$_BootLogo_4_UEFI_V1.05\V1.05>UefiModL.exe /MC /S D3633-S1.UPD /T LOGO.UPD /LOGO_SRC FJ-Logo_new.bmp
    UefiModL Version 6.75

    Target file write error​

    I run the cmd elevated (as Admin). Write rights are checked.
    Any Idea, whats wrong? I tested on two win10 and on one w8.1 installations - always the same problem.

    EDIT:

    I installed now a 32bit Windows 10, because all other machines where 64bit - but I get the same error.
    Can somebody remember the Windows version used before?
    I also checked with Process Monitor if that tool trys to create the LOGO.UPD file - but no, there is no note about that. I see, that the tool reads the source and logo file, thats is....
    Also checked with a older source upd file from an older bios version - again the same.

    Windows-version doesn't matter.

    Perhaps your image-file is too big for the .upd-file or has not the right resolution. Please attach your image-file and upd.-file, i will try to generate an update-file.

    It is also possible to change the bootlogo permanent without the tool, manual editing in hex-editor and UEFITool will do the same, but bios has to be flashed with Intel Flash Programming Tool.

    I have absolutely no idea, why the tool is useless for now: I tried several different machines with Windows XP, 7 and 10 and got always the same error as you "Target file write error". I'm very sure it worked in the past. Perhaps an update made it useless.

    For luck, you should be able to flash the bootlogo directly without modding the .upd-file with the crappy UefimodL-tool:
    (partly copied from MANUFACTURING TOOLS-How-To)

    Hope it will work.

    Attached is the actual default bootlogo-file, after download change the extension from .txt to .bmp! I extracted it from the bios-file with uefitool.

    Hello! I have a few Fujitsu desktops, with custom boot image, and im trying to get them back to the original.

    Tried modding with uefimod, and also with this command:
    DskFlash.exe /UPDATELOGO /ARB /O=FJ-Logo_new.bmp

    And no luck. That command only gives me a new empty line in CMD.

    Any help, maybe @Lutschpuppe ?

    Thanks!

    Sure.
    Which model of desktop do you have?

    Keep in mind, older motherboards (pre-Coffee-Lake, Intel 7th generation and older) don't support the direct flashing of a bootlogo file.

    For this case you have to generate an updatefile with UefiModL-tool and flash it to the machines.

    Okay, good to know. I just need to try again more.

    So, I can take the newest bios, inject the logo with uefimodl, and flash to the machines?

    Yes, you're right.

    In rarely cases, if not working, a manual reconstruction/insertion can be performed, which will also cleanup the bios (every update, bootlogo-mod, OA2/OA3,... is logged persistent to bios). But this is individual to every machine.

    Finally I got time to continue testing on weekend. I got another usb-stick, and inject the logo with UefiModL-tool, flashed in DOS, and works great! It only flashes the logo in my case, so after that I also flash the newest BIOS with another usb-stick, and everything fine after that.

    Many thanks!
