That are sure a lot of questions.
First of all, i have no idea why the bios file wouldn’t be closed. Maybe the programmer forgot to close the file after writing. (I know i sure did way back when i was programming in Turbo Pascal). Usually a reboot and a scandisk helps the file getting closed.
I only know the boot logo for Award 4.51PG bioses , since i’ve changed them myself in my system. There are two logo’s.
There is the EPA logo (Energy Star thingy in the right corner) which has a certain pixelsize/width and 16 colors. But this .EPA is not a standard bitmap but can be two different compression types.
Here you can find a lot of info about it.
The there’s the standard logo : That’s just an uncompressed 2 bit 16 color 640x480 bitmap file (.BMP) which you apply in the binary file.
