I replaced the battery in my Thinkpad Twist s230u and got the EAIA / UUID / Serial Number etc messages showing at startup.
I have the (latest?) Hardware Maintenance USB (I downloaded v1.90 from the forum, but it says 1.89, it's 17TM38US) and I can't get past the "EEPROM is write-protected" error. I have tried pressing ESC at bootup many times with no luck; I think I have it unlocked in the BIOS settings properly.
Any suggestions? Is there a newer HMD available?
The laptop works fine, just getting the annoying EAIA message with loud beeps on startup

Try some of their suggestions.
My only 'contact' with a Twist was its IPS LCD, which I put in my X220.
As for the HMD, try removing the touchpad cabla and then boot that USB stick.
