    Do you know how to backup a Insyde H2o Rev 3.7 BIOS of a Lenovo U510?

    Had no luck with Universal BIOS Backup tool and flas**t.exe. After modyfiing it I'm not able to flash it back with InsydeFlash or flas**t. Error: The bios size does not match. (same error without modyfiing)

    Is there an option to extract the BIOS with InsydeFlash.exe without flashing a new one? (or any other tool)

    Thanks in advance.

    there is usualy a file .ini that is the settings for the flash.
    i believe there is a section u can uncomment the ; to make it backup.

    yes, thats true. But InsydeFlash.exe don't do any backups without flashing. Maybe there is a parameter to do just a backup?

    ok, i found a solution: cmd.exe "InsydeFlash.exe xxx.fd /g"

    But now I've another problem: Flashing it back. InsydeFlash throws this erorr: It only supports to flash secure BIOS on current platform.The image to be updated is not a secure BIOS. Any ideas? Thanks

    I think you used the newest version, the old version won't show "It only supports to flash secure BIOS on current platform."

    I got mine to backup bios to flash with flas**t 1.5(see attached) and InsydeFlash 5.13.

    I modded the bios with whitelist removed but I got Flash Write SMI ERROR with InsydeFlash 5.13. and restarted with flas**t
