I bought an older MSI m-board from ebay. It is the K7T/266 Pro-2 Ver.3
This board is not supported by MSI, but I found a third-party vendor that did, somewhat.

I inquired with them about cpu support. They state that XP 2100+ and higher was supported. I asked if this meant 2200, 2300? They said that they only verified 2100+. I also asked if thoroughbred's were supported, they did not reply. I am a little confused with this board because it is almost exactly the same as a Ver.2, except for the bios (Award, not AMI), and the MSI on-board LED troubleshooter.
Also, I downloaded an Award bios that supported my board, but the site was in German, and I lost the bookmark.
So here are 3 questions.
What tool can I use to read my bios, or a copy of my bios, and see if it supports the newer Thoroughbreds?
What do I look for?
If I find my bios supports newer Thoroughbreds, will it support the Thorton? or Barton 266 bus?
Thank you for any information. I am eager to upgrade and would like to get the best possible Athlon for my board. They are so cheap right now.
