Hello,

Are there any examples showing how to show a splash screen during boot on
a
standard X86?

Thanks,

Did you mean a splash screen before or after the OS boots?

I did this on an ARM based product and it was non-trivial. The IPL has to
set up the video hardware, palette, frame buffer, dma, etc and load the
splash screen into the frame buffer. In our case the splash screen was
loaded from a defined location in flash, you'd have to either bind it into
the IPL (which could become quite large), build it on the fly or figure out
somewhere to store it where it could be found before the OS is running.

Hello,

CBD BC,

http://www.qnx.com/company/distributors ... cbdbc.html,

developed boot loader with splash screen support for x86-compatible hardware.
You can write them (email: support@kpda.ru) and ask for demo-version.

Regards,
Igor.
