(Sorry, the default fonts are hard to see against the default black background) Once you launch the tool, go ahead and open STEP_02. If you click on “Background” you’ll see the name of the background file that is associated with the template: Step_02.bmp, which is located in the same x86 folder, as shown in the earlier pictures.
I replace the ones that come bundled with the updated version. The image files are 800x600, so they can look fuzzy on high-res screens. Bginfo then overlays additional information: This image below is pretty close to the default, after adding 2 of the items Mike Terrill blogged about, and one additional Item based on a TS Variable.
Download BGInfo In the x86 folder is where the templates and images files are located. Here is my current template after a few additional modifications, which I go into more detail below.
This will also be the folder you add your custom files, but we’ll get to that later. BGI files are the bginfo “database” files that contain the template information (layout, options, background choice). Following Mike’s blog, I added the BIOS Mode & Secure Boot Fields, as well as the Make & Model information (WQL Query), pulled directly from his post.
I then proceeded to add Processor Model & BIOS version, then several TS Variables.
BIOS Version: SELECT SMBIOSBIOSVersion FROM Win32_bios Manufacturer: SELECT Manufacturer FROM Win32_Computer System Model: SELECT Model FROM Win32_Computer System Processor Model: SELECT Name FROM Win32_Processor .
