    So, I've probably just confused myself from jumping forum to forum to blog to...whatever. I downloaded the latest BIOS from HP which was "SP60939.exe" I also downloaded InsydeEZH2O, as well as Winrar.

    I unzipped SP60939 and got the following files:

    0188B.bin
    FlsHook.exe
    FlsHookDll.dll
    DWupdLcl.exe
    InsydeFlash.exe
    iscflash.dll
    iscflash.sys
    iscflashx64.sys
    platform.ini
    xerces-c_2_7.dll

    Now, I can't open any of those with H2O (they all give the error "Program can't find fv information in FD file"). And I also can't extract any of them in winrar ("No archives found in selected files and folders").

    What step am I missing?

    Info:
    Current BIOS: Insyde F.25, 2/21/2013
    Downloaded, but can't do anything with BIOS: Insyde F.25 3/8/13
    BIOS Link: Won't let me post it. Cause I'm a newbie.
    Processor: AMD E-300 APU
    Laptop: HP 2000-2b43dx

    Mission:
    Really, I just want to change the splash screen.

    Thanks for any and all help!

    P.S. First post here after a few days of reading about BIOS modding. Sorry if I posted to the wrong section!

    click start.. type folder options.. goto View tab.. now uncheck "hide file extensions for known file types"

    u selected an app to open the .fd files.. and now it doesnt show .fd

    0188B.bin is the bios. Its is RSA signed and there is no method (yet) to decrypt newer HP bioses.

    i suspect if u compare structure to older bios..we can trim the extra junk to make it load and decrypt.

    however if u find the 0188B file from older version ( like F.0A or under) it might load.

    I have since found BIOS F.25 on the laptop and reflashed the bios.

    Problem solved.

    Thanks
