BIOS checker: Export / Compare local and remote BIOS settings


In this post, I will show you a tool I created that allows you to export BIOS configurations from local or remote computer(s) to a CSV or HTML report. 
It also allows you to compare both configurations and do an HTML or Excel comparison report.


How to get the tool ?



How it looks like ?
The tool is composed of two parts 
- Export BIOS
- Compare BIOS

The export BIOS part looks like as below:

For now three manufacturers are available. I will add more.
- Dell
- HP
- Lenovo

A button in the title bar allows you to set credentials to get remote computers configuration
The compare BIOS part looks like as below:

Another theme is available, a Dark Theme, as below:
To use it, change the XAML to launch at line 30.

Note: Depending of the language of your computer, the Excel report may be displayed in one column instead of one per part. You can use Excel to change that :-)
