That looks like FIC PA-2012 - looking for BIOS.....
[edit]but latest FIC PA-2012 BIOS at ftp.mathematik.uni-marburg.de/pub/mirror/fic/ is 113jb16.zip,
06/23/1998-VP3-586B-W877-2A5LEF09C-00
Version 1.13JB16
so yours is later. Would you care to save, zip and email it ?

That version is:
03/21/2000-VP3-586B-W877-2A5LEF09C-00
Version JI438

and requires patching for big HDD ...done.
@zam: Is there any marking on the motherboard to indicate whether it is 2012 or 2013 ?

Zam sent me his BIOS, but that has been superseded by Edwin's and Deniss's association of the "JI" BIOSes with the PA-2013.

@zam:
PA-2012 and PA-2013 share the the same code 2A5LEF09C but Edwin and DennisS explained the letters "JI" in your BIOS "1.5JI32" should mean it is PA-2013. My mistake in not spotting that there were two boards with the same code.
DenisS has found a later BIOS for PA-2013 at:
ftp://ftp.fic.com.tw/motherboard/bios/s ... JI4333.ZIP
which is:
01/11/2001-VP3-586B-W877-2A5LEF09C-00
Version JI4333

and supports big HDD. I would use that BIOS.
