Unlock all hidden options for insydeh20 bios

Thanks for the info, i just wanted to ask, which forms are hidden :-)

Good part so far: I found all the functions which are in my bios. Bad part: they hid the forms differently and I don't know YET how they done it.

There are three ways to hide the forms: by code within the SetupBrowser (my bios), by VSS-Data (inside bios data) or by Form OP-codes.

The VSS-data is formatted in the downloaded bios. If you flash it, it takes the VSS-data, which is already installed on your computer (which I don't have :-))

So maybe you see any way to dump YOUR current bios? With linux it actually is no prob; I don't know if HPs windows tools offer a way to backup your current bios. They actually should. Could you please check and if possible upload a backup of your current bios?

That might be a great help to have your current bios WITH VSS-data :-)

Hi akbar,

ok, found the spot.
Bad: Insyde doing their work better. They always implemented the code which was showing "advanced" stuff. Not in your bios. Actually its just a small part of code missing, but I am not able to insert new code.

Good: I will find a way to patch the underlying functions. may take some time.

Until then: What I can to is REPLACE an existing Form (like the diagnostic one) with the "power" or "advanced" one. So you could flash "advanced" bios, change settings, flash "power" bios, change settings, and then flash back orig bios.

Maybe I find a better way. I come back on you when I got it.

Ok, I'll get back to you until weekend. Until then please try out the recovery method <fn><esc>. I do not want to brick your computer :-) So you really should only do it if that method works (read on my page or search internet. On some machines the keys you need to hold down are different)

Actually I cannot test the bios here. The patch is very safe, so I do not see problems. But actually we only know after flashing :-|

Hi akbar,

bios has been patched. Took out "Diagnostics" and "Security" and replaced them with "Power" and "Advanced"

I think its ok to you that I put those bioses on my page (not your dump, but the first one you posted, so no private settings are included)

You can download it there (http://www.jakobheinemann.de/insydeh2o_e.html) Seems I can post links now :-)
At the bottom: HP-F46_patched.fd

I also managed to include a whole bunch of new stuff in my tools - thanks to your bios.
So if you want you can replace those forms by yourself now (run the tool with your bios and you may choose which forms to replace with hidden ones)
BTW: just don't replace the Exit form - well, only if you like your bios that much that you never want to leave it again :-)

Warning: I was very carefully with what I did. But still I dont know if it will work. Since "Diagnostic" and "Security" forms are not loaded anymore I do not know if some initialization they might be doing is skipped and missing now.

Gimme some feedback, please.

Hi Paula,

just had a short look. You probably have much more luck than akbar; code for all forms is included and just hidden by a little switch, what I can see so far. So should be possible to patch.
Will get back to you when I got it. Tomorrow Final Fantasy XIII-2 comes out back here in Germany. Probably will have to play some before patching :-)

What you can try: the first bios you posted is somehow corrupted. Should also be 2MB or some HP package. Try to get a "real" one from HP or give me some link; since when I patch your dump only you can use it, but others would get YOUR settings. I would like to put all patched bioses on my side, but I dont want to do it with a dumped one :-)
