As the Columbia 5 and Columbia 5P motherboards have different BIOSes, it is important to know how to easily identify them, in order to avoid mis-flashing the BIOS.Does the description tie up with the Columbia 5/V ? I assume you used the system serial number to identify the board?
The overview below shows the differences between the two motherboards.

Columbia 5 has a label marked NF5 and does not have a front audio connector.
The Columbia 5P videodriver will list the display adapter as SiS651C.
The Columbia 5 videodriver will list SiS650/651 instead.
