    InsydeH20 BIOS Modding ZONE

    I have been asked several times to make some guides for InsydeH20 BIOS modifications/tweaks and other stuff :D . So today i started this topic and will show you everything i know about this annoying InsydeH20 BIOS ;) .
    I think it will take me some weeks to make for every modification a video/tutorial on Youtube.
    However lets go.... :D

    How to dump (backup your currently used BIOS) your InsydeH20 BIOS:

    YOUTUBE

    1. DOWNLOAD this Utility ( Universal BIOS Backup ToolKit)
    2. Run it as an admin
    3. Press READ
    4. Wait until it has finished
    5. Press BACKUP
    6. Save your BIOS
    7. Rename your BIOS.rom to BIOS.fd (not necesarry!)


    How to flash a modified BIOS:


    YOUTUBE

    1. DOWNLOAD my modified flasher
    2. Extract the flasher
    3. Paste your modified BIOS.fd file into this folder
    4. Rename it to BIOS.FD ( i forced this name in the .cfg file)
    5. Close ALL programms
    6. Launch the InsydeFlash.exe

    INFORMATION IMPORTANT !!!!

    • The flasher will flash always! It wont check the BIOS Version!
    • Platform check is ON ---> You cant flash a incompatible BIOS
    • Should work on every platform XP/Vista/7
    • When youre flashing a EzH20 modified BIOS you´ll get a EC update error. Just ignore it and click OK! Flashed BIOS will still work.


    How to modify a GPU BIOS wich is contained in the InsydeH20 BIOS:

    Your BIOS uses other vss offsets wich cant be located by EzH20.... You will have to locate them with a hexeditor and mod try THIS

    Hi.
    I have a Toshiba L650 - 16w and I would like to know if this would work with the currently installed Bios (v.2.20).

    (i5 430, Mobo HM55: PSK1JE-02D00HIT, 4GB DDR3, ATI HD5650, Blu-Ray burner, etc...)

    Thank you.
