RU offers a toolset which is comparable to RWEverything but without the need to boot into Windows. It is very handy and the UI is neat. (
(Trial version)
2.00.012 Windows ACPIScope is the advanced tool for visualization and debugging of ACPI information from different sources.
(Trial version)
4.00.018 Windows PCIScope is a powerful tool designed to explore, examine and debug PCI subsystem of your computer. It was made to fit the requirements of the most demanding users, especially engineers, programmers and system administrators, and to integrate all advanced functions and tools into one product.
(Trial version)
2.00.012 Windows DMIScope is a powerful tool designed to explore the System Management BIOS (SMBIOS) also known as DMI BIOS.Some implementations of SMBIOS contain vendor specific information. DMIScope gives you the unique possibility to add descriptions of such structures via simple text file.)
MemDump 2.00 DOS The MEMDump utility is designed to dump or copy any part of 4GB linear memory address space under MS-DOS and Windows 9x DOS to a console, text or binary file.You can use MEMDump for dump contents of PCI devices memory located outside of first megabyte, access USB structures, study contents of memory used by memory managers, etc. For proper access to hardware registers, memory can be read with BYTE, WORD or Double WORD granularity. Utility provides transparent access to memory with or without installed memory managers.
CrScreenshotDxe 4 Jan 2016 UEFI This DXE driver tries to register keyboard shortcut (LCtrl + LAlt + F12) handler for all text input devices. The handler tries to find a writable FS, enumerates all GOP-capable video devices, takes screenshots from them and saves the result as PNG files on that writable FS.
UEFITool 0.24.0 Windows, Mac OS X and Linux UEFITool is a cross-platform C++/Qt program for parsing, extracting and modifying UEFI firmware images.It supports parsing of full BIOS images starting with the flash descriptor or any binary files containing UEFI volumes.(
BinWalk 2.1.1 Linux Binwalk can scan firmware images, detect signatures of file systems and file types. It can extract components from firmware image, even in form of compression. It can be used to generate entropy graph of firmware image.(
Chipsec 1.3.6 Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and UEFI shell CHIPSEC is a framework for analyzing the security of PC platforms including hardware, system firmware (BIOS/UEFI), and platform components. It includes a security test suite, tools for accessing various low level interfaces, and forensic capabilities. It can be run on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and UEFI shell.
UEFI Firmware Parser 1.6 Python The UEFI firmware parser is a simple module and set of scripts for parsing, extracting, and recreating UEFI firmware volumes. This includes parsing modules for BIOS, OptionROM, Intel ME and other formats too. Please use the example scripts for parsing tutorials.
