AMI BIOS motherboards identification

Recommended tools for finding your BIOS update BIOS Agent scan: Upgrade your BIOS! Driver Agent scan: Instant Access to 116,215 Device Drivers Updates!

Many users don't know the name of their clone motherboard. This is because the company name is not mentioned anywhere in the manual, or on the motherboard. If you want to upgrade your BIOS you really have to know the motherboard manufacturer, because if you flash the wrong BIOS upgrade your system could stop booting.

Luckily, Award and AMI BIOS have a unique BIOS ID (= BIOS Number) which identifies the manufacturer and chipset of the board. Phoenix BIOSs, in most cases, do NOT.

The AMI or Award BIOS id appears at the bottom of your screen after power on, during memory count up. The PAUSE key should work at that point, allowing you to write down the BIOS number, the BIOS date, and the version. You must copy it exactly.

Another (easier) way to get the AMI BIOS ID is by downloading the BIOS Agent Plus software (spyware/adware free) which will scan your PC and return your BIOS ID among other hardware information. Optionally it'll also find the correct BIOS Update (if available) and offer a paid subscription option to the BIOS Agent Plus service where you'll get access to BIOS Updates and Driver Updates on between 1 to 10 PCs for 1 year. (you can perform the scan without buying anything)

You can also try the AMIBIOS Motherboard ID Utility (written by AMI)

If you have an Award BIOS please visit the Award BIOS number page.

Let's show you an example of an AMI BIOS id:

51-0102-1101-00111111-101094-AMIS123-P

To find your motherboard manfacturer, please look at the third (3) set of numbers in your BIOS string. Find the corresponding numbers in your BIOS string and match them with the numbers below.

This BIOS string would indicate SUNLOGIX INC.

Identifying the motherboard manufacturer

The third (3) set of numbers in your AMI BIOS string identifies your motherboard manufacturer. The following is a list of all the ids and their corresponding manufacturers. Follow the links to go to the individual company pages on my website. Those individual company pages will list all AMI BIOS Numbers for that company.
