Identifying a motherboard with a Phoenix BIOS is more difficult then with AMI or Award BIOSes, but it is not impossible.

Try the following options:

  1. Find the maker's name on or in the computer
  2. Find the manufacturer or model in the copyright notice displayed during bootup (POST)
  3. Find it in the owner's manual

If you can't find it using the above methods, you're out of luck, because Phoenix BIOS don't carry IDs (unlike AMI and Award) which can uniquely identify the motherboard. The numbers listed on the BIOS sticker on the motherboard do not identify the BIOS version or the manufacturer of the system.
