    Do you have an utility that could allow InsydeH20 users to flash a modded bios via DOS? My OS is connected via a USB and everytime I try to run InsydeFlash the laptop just crashes cause it disconnects the USB drives for abit ): I use SP55068 (F.1B)

    Maybe try the steps at this link? https://forums.mydigitallife.net/th...5068-donovan6000-mods-microcode-update.77793/
    and also: https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/hp-insyde-bios-recovery-steps.35272/

    Seems like you need to flash in Windows or via EFI environment since USB ports are reset during flashing in DOS environment.

    Thanks for your reply!

    I ended up (sort of) directly soldering the hard drive to the south bridge 4 data pins RX and TX for sata input while having it powered to a 5V supply and was able to power the HDD without use of the USB, just to say that the bios then worked like a charm. So for anyone who may experience a BSOD while updating the bios perhaps ensure that your bios flasher&files arent in any way interfering with USB because many flashers will reset the USB ports temporarily during flash rendering a BSOD and possibly a corrupted BIOS unless they're MS-DOS based / UEFI.

    How can i identify what bios i have in my sons HP Probook 6460b with an intel i5 CPU? as cant get into BIOS due to forgotten password...I've tried using the BIOS update util from HP's website as there is an update available but i can't apply due to forgotten password.

    I'm hoping then i could use one of the programs as per the OP to fix

    Many thanks

    Edit - Using Win 10

    Try running msinfo32.exe and check "BIOS Version/Date" along with "System Model".
