    So I downloaded the Universal BIOS Backup Toolkit thinking I could use it to copy a bios between identical computers. I quickly discovered that it will not write the bios "backups" that it creates. So backup with no restore option?????? What is the point? I guess if you want to try an look into your bios for some reason?

    Has anyone found a real "toolkit" for UEFI computers? I need something that will create a bios backup AND restore it.

    Way to avoid answering the question.

    Finding a bios upgrade is not possible for many laptops including ByteMaster's Sony and numerous models of Toughbook I've handled.

    If they never released a BIOS update here isn't one to find.
    How is finding a bios upgrade and "better and easier" when none even exist?

    "Not easily" doesn't matter. It's the only option in these cases.

    ByteMaster's question stands unanswered and I have the same question.

    We added it as well at but I can't post links here yet so if you search "Universal BIOS Backup Toolkit MajorGeeks" you can find the page.

    We're always here to host for any developer who puts out a new utility on MDL. tim @ majorgeeks dot com

    I tried to open this on a laptop running Windows 7 and has a Insyde BIOS, but clicking on the exe gave me the error "Can't open file". What am I doing wrong?

    Make sure your antivirus isn't interfering.

    Uninstalled Avast antivirus and restarted, but it still gives the same error. Do I need to have .NET framework installed or something?

    No, it doesn't need those frameworks. Can you please share a screenshot?

    Edit: I managed to run it after creating a new user account. I think the problem was caused by corrupted files since I couldn't run the CPU-Z installer as well.
