Does anyone have an updated bios for this mobo. Their site is down forever :( and I don't want to use a disk manager (hdd is a Maxtor) because I've heard I cannot boot from cdrom (only from hdd and floppy).
If anyone have an updated bios I might give a try.
Many thanks :D

My email: valicb@hotmail.com or valicb@yahoo.com :wink:

Can you give us clue on the model ? What is the BIOS OEM message (under the Award logo, at top left of the memory count screen) e.g "Intel 440LX Rev. C"

Sorry for the delayed reply.

The string at boot sequence reads : Intel 440LX3 REV 1.5 (FOR W-02).

For Rainbow: :D Many thanks, I will send you the bios.

Looks like a very specific version of the LX3 with a Winbond clockgen.
