    Hy,
    I have seen that there are two EEProm programmer:

    CH341A

    and the new:


    XTW100

    Which could I buy for use with Windows 10 64bit?
    Thanks

    CH341A will work with Windows 10 and vanilla software, i recommend instead using "Asprogrammer". Works better, more stable.

    (OP)
    I have read that XTW100 is a new version and CH341A has got a voltage problem.
    I need to delete Hp Probook whitelist.
    I need to read bios, MX25L3205D, from mainboard.
    Thanks

    Link for that assumption?
    MX25L3205D is supported, but in most cases you won't have luck to read/write it w/ clip on mobo. You should desolder it and put it in adapter.

    CH341a was tested and no 5v issue .. its 3.3v
    it was reported in win-raid site yrs ago but seems wrong.

    I have bought X
    I have read that for my Probook 4320s I could use a Clip.
    I have bought a XTW100, when it will arrive I will write here.
    Thanks

    you can try to read from clip.
    if it dont work add power 3.3 v to it or plug in power to laptop but dont power on

    I think that XTW100 is an evolution of CH341A.

    the software likely wont see it.. only the one supplied for it.
