There are 2 things you could do. 1) you can change the boot settings in the bios or 2) you can choose the the boot device on the logo screen or bios screen on startup. to do #1 you need to press either DEL or F2 on the logo/bios screen. inside you can change the boot priority. for #2 once you see the logo/bios screen you can either press F10, F11 or F2 to go to the boot device selection. To know which buttons to press for these once you are on the bios screen the right button will be flashed.
WHY BOTHER ? , why risk bricking it.? why not ask HP how to do that, (fixya is not HP i think you are like 1 , in 1billion owners doing this.? but is done by value added PC re-sellers, and is covered in the HP books. (if lucky some are not;.)
this logo with the dell picture can be disabled from the Bios settings ..to get there press F2 on start ..or what ever key is indicated on that logo screen for to go in set-up ..and in there under advanced settings look for screen logo ..and disable it ..after that f10 to save settings ..or in some bios editions it will ask if you want to save changes on exit ..select save changes and exit .. just look carefully in the tabs ..cause this option is there for sure..and disabling the logo will kinda make it boot faster ..
You can turn this off in your Bios settings. To do this, press delete when computer starts booting up and this will open the bios screens. Go to Advanced Bios Features and look for 'Full Screen Logo Show', set this to disabled. Some of the soyo boards will vary in how you do this so just look at what yours has in the Advanced Bios page, some you will change the Logo size to make it go away and another you switch between Logo-0 and Logo-1. Lastly, if you are running the p4i865pe plus dragon 2 v1.0 board and/or bio version 865dp1a2 there seems to be no way to get rid of it (updating that bio version to the newest one may change that though)
The EPA logo and the Fullscreen logo all are stored in the bios. That is the update you download from the manufacturer's website contains both the logos in it. So if you mod the bios update and then apply the patch the next time when you boot your computer you will see the new logo.
***BEWARE A BAD FLASH CAN RENDER YOUR MOTHERBOARD USELESS****
The mods are in two sections. If you only want one or the other, just skip to that section.
1. Make Sure the motherboard uses the Award Bios.
2. Either Download the new Bios from the Manufacturer website or get it from the system Bios directly by backing it up. For backing up and updating bios, I use WinFlash 1.51 (there might be a newer version, I just stick with what works!).
3. Now we have the bios file on disk. Now make a new bitmap image with any of your favorite imaging software. Make sure that the final bitmap image you have created is 640*480 and 256 colors.
4. Now use the CBROM Utility to change the boot logo in the bios file. This is done by using Command Prompt
c:\bios>CBROM215 bios.bin /logo logo.bmp
5. Now to check whether the bios file was updated correctly. Run the Award bios editor. (make sure the dlls in the plugin directory are moved to the folder with awbedit.exe)
6. Load the bios.bin in the Award bios editor and check in the left hand list for Fullscreen Logo and that it does show your logo. If okay your bios is now ready to be flashed.
7. Now use Winflash utility, load the bios.bin and click on update .
8. Reboot the computer and the bios logo is changed.
Procedure for the EPA logo is just same except the few things.
Image size is : 138*84 16 Colors and 72 pixels/inch
Command for adding to bios file is : c:\bios>CBROM215 bios.bin /epa epalogo.bmp
When you check for the EPA logo in the Award Bios Editor, the colors will not be same as those that you choose but when you flash the bios and reboot, it will show the original colors.
Never try to flash bios without a uninterruptible power supply (UPS). Close all the programs before flashing from Windows. ALWAYS wait for flash program to notify you for reboot, DO NOT EVER EVER reboot when you think it is ready or taking too long. Mucking up the flash CAN MAKE YOUR MOTHERBOARD GARBAGE!!! You have been warned!! I hope that this helps, Ken
