I want to update the Award BIOS, current version is 05/12/1998-VP3-586B-W877-2A5LEF09C-00 on a FIC VA503+, due to it's lack of support for HDD. I noticed a 02/23/1999-VP3-586B-W877-2A5LEF09C-00 version for the FIC PA-2012 in the Large HDD patched BIOS section. Am I correct in thinking this will work since other than the date code preceding the numbers, i.e. 02/23/1999 all the rest of the numbers are the same?
