View Full Version : Windows 8 Splash

I noticed that during the upgrade Windows 8 was grabbing the BIOS splash screen instead of providing its own. Needless to say, I thought it was funny to see the ROG logo throughout Win8 installation instead of the actual Windows logo.

Anybody else had this?

Also, after Win8 completed upgrading, there was no splash screen being used at all. Every time I reboot now, I get no Windows 8 splash at all...

Yeah, it happened to me too... I wish it stayed with the ROG logo though, it looks way more awesome :P

It's UEFI... When you UEFI boot, (which I prefer) the ASUS ROG logo displays. I definitely like it, but if you have your drive setup as just a standard MBR disk you'll get the Windows logo.

There are some benefits to running UEFI boot, so it's a good thing.

Do you happen to know where exactly those boot splash screens are defined when using UEFI?
