So it turns out you can put custom boot images on Lenovo laptops

@BadAtNames It's a little different for each laptop. Here's a good tutorial: ittutorials.net/computer-repai

Your bios update program will probably have a file like "Logo.txt" that describes the details for your laptop. For example, for mine, I had to name the file logo1.whatever, and only the Gif version of the image worked right

@Zuph that is rad, and I have a T430s too! Going to have to get on this

@Zuph Will I be able to fight the urge? (probably not...)

@Zuph uuh windows tutorial, dammit ;-;

But thanks anyway I'm sure there is a way to do this with linux somewhere.

@eleos @Zuph yes, you can use #coreboot for that purpose. It also liberates your #firmware.

@Zuph Is there a tutorial for that around? Can you provide a link? ö.ö

@Zuph omg, what is this sorcery!? this is brilliant! thank you for finding this! 😁

@Zuph
Should be possible on most UEFI systems with ESRT support

@Zuph You can also run #coreboot with #SeaBIOS and libgfxinit for a high-resolution #framebuffer, and then use a 32bit png image with my patches. Or render a demo if you hack a bit on the code. :)
