#1 [TOOL] H20EZE - Insyde "Easy BIOS Editor" by DvL 24.04.2019 07:36

I intend to share this useful tool which has low publicity so far. It's a tool made by Insyde, citing from their pages:

H2OEZE™: Easy BIOS Editor that helps edit binaries in the BIOS, including Option ROMs, driver binaries, logos, and Setup values.

"The H2OEZE program is designed to provide interfacing functions that allow users to replace the content of BIOS or to modify the initial value in the BIOS. To perform these interface options, users must first load an FD file."

NOTE: Download attached as file to this topic.

*Edits .fd ROM files*

This tool allows you to conveniently replace and export;
- OpROM (including VGABIOS'es)
- Any module of choice (by GUID)
- Setup menu settings (CSV, example output: https://pastebin.com/ns9DjwQt

Module operations:
- Replace module
- Insert new module
- Delete existing module
- Export a module

OpRom operations:

All, well many versions, and other leaked Intel Insyde tools here (Intel themselves put out these packages, so it's OK to share) - https://github.com/mikebdp2/Insider_BIOS_Tools

It may be linked around here somewhere, not sure, but you gave them their own thread now
You can add all the tools and their descriptions/usage ect to your first post if you want, make this an Intel/Insyde BIOS tool thread?

#5 RE: [TOOL] H20EZE - Insyde "Easy BIOS Editor" by klaxklax3 24.04.2019 09:59

i advise to use *.bin image , with *.fd image you running out of options.

@SODA - I saw that too, funny it's been up for a year or more that I know of, and originally approved by Intel too since it was all very old and all very publically posted already! Post a link here to help others and down it goes

#8 RE: [TOOL] H20EZE - Insyde "Easy BIOS Editor" by Thunder0616 15.05.2019 11:54

Sony VPCZ1 Insyde efi BIOS had used it to update the CPU Microcode.

1. first, Use the Universal BIOS Backup ToolKit 2.0 to backup the Insyde BIOS. I had use Flash1t.exe to backup the BIOS, but H2OEZE can not get correct MC data.
2. Use Hwinfo to know your CPU ID, mine is 00020655, also you can see the CPU version
3. Goto https://github.com/platomav/CPUMicrocodes, get the MC updates.
(Intel, AMD & VIA CPU Microcode Repositories Discussion)
4. use H2Oeze load the BIOS, then delete the old MC, add the new MC.

good morning, I'm trying to rename the motherboard serial, I have a g50-80 lenovo.
is it possible to rename it with this tool? where do i find the id file? Thank you

#12 RE: [TOOL] H20EZE - Insyde "Easy BIOS Editor" by Lost_N_BIOS 12.09.2019 14:52

@gerard91 - This tool is not used for that. You will need to dump the BIOS, and then give me the current serial and what you want it changed to.

If this is Intel system you can use FPT - Check BIOS main page and see if ME FW version is shown, if not then download HWINFO64 and on the large window on left side, expand motherboard and find ME area, inside that get the ME Firmware version.
Once you have that, go to this thread and in the section "C" download the matching ME System Tools Package (ie if ME FW version = 10.x get V10 package, if 9.0-9.1 get V9.1 package, if 9.5 or above get V9.5 package etc)
Intel Management Engine: Drivers, Firmware & System Tools

Once downloaded, inside you will find Flash Programming Tool folder, and inside that a Windows or Win/Win32 folder. Select that Win folder, hold shift and press right click, choose open command window here (Not power shell).
At the command prompt type the following command and send me the created file to modify >> FPTw.exe -bios -d biosreg.bin

Right after you do that, try to write back the BIOS Region dump and see if you get any error, if you do show me image of the command entered and the error given >> FPTw.exe -bios -f biosreg.bin

If you are stuck on Win10 and cannot easily get command prompt, and method I mentioned above does not work for you, here is some links that should help
Or, copy all contents from the Flash Programming Tool \ DOS folder to the root of a USB Bootable disk and do the dump from DOS (FPT.exe -bios -d biosreg.bin)
https://www.windowscentral.com/how-add-c...creators-update
https://www.windowscentral.com/add-open-...menu-windows-10
https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/open-...ator-privileges

In the end, it may not be possible to write back modified BIOS, without flash programmer (CH341A) + SOIC8 test clip cable, these are cheap so best to order now, wait for delivery, and then just do it the easy way.

You need the Lenovo Variable Tool (Lvar64). Once you have it, you can change them like that:

  • Serial Number

    Lvar64 /w /sn /c "1234567890123"
    (13 Digits)
  • Lenovo Serial Number

    Lvar64 /w /ln /c "XXXXXXXX"
    (8 Digits and Uppercase Letters: 0-9, A-Z)
