Insyde H2O is a 32-bit third-party BIOS replicator. A computer programmer can use it to unlock BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) on a desktop or laptop computer. BIOS controls how a computer starts up. To unlock it for editing, start the computer with the Insyde H20 program. By starting the computer with the Insyde H20 disc, it can access the dormant BIOS settings on the hard drive.
