I recived an E-Mail

"I need a patched Bios for OEM Mainborad chaintech 6BTA2"

The chip is a 1MB and the board is a Compaq OEM

Can anybody help?

Thanks

Is there anything specific about the Compaq OEM aspect ? Does the BIOS ID still look like Chaintech ?
[edit]Previous post, Rainbow got no reply on the forum, but it highlights the problem; 1Mbit (Compaq) vs 2 Mbit (Chaintech)

Chaintech have only two 2 Mbit BIOSes, Version 1:
07/08/1999-i440BX-ITE867-2A69KC39C-00
07/08/1999
and version 2;
12/17/1999-i440BX-ITE867-2A69KC39C-00
12/17/1999

We need a backup from that Compaq bios as I doubt the .bin file will be readily available in the Compaq upgrade flash disk. Although it would help if you can retrieve the system series and model number.
