Lost my Thinkpad boot logo

Seems that after flashing a custom bios to my T420s, I’ve lost my "Thinkpad" boot screen logo. 


On startup all I get is the bottom line –  "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue ThinkVantage button", before it boots normally.  No "Thinkpad" or "Lenovo" logos.


I’ve tried re-flashing with several stock BIOS’s but each time I only get the bottom line.  I’ve also tried following the "BIOS_LOGO" instructions (C:DriversFlash8cujxxus) for installing a custom startup image, but nothing I’ve tried works.  Both Winflash and Winuptp have options for changing the startup image but neither seems to work.


Any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong ?.  Thanks.
