In order to update the BIOS, I am using AMI's OEMLOGO.EXE which I downloaded as part of an AMI tools package. The tool has a small GUI that allows you to backup your old logo (works) and implant a new one. After I implanted the new one, I verified that it was present by "backing it up" again, and the new image came back out.
Next, with the updated ROM file on my flash drive I rebooted, Alt-F2 into Asus EZ Flash2, and it automatically found my new ROM file. But when I went to reflash teh BIOS it checked and said the file was "invalid".
I was trying the same method with the same result. Unfortunately the solution (at least for me) was to install a full Windows and use MyLogo... (anyway, you also can access the updater tool from the bios itself. It is on the most right menu item)
