Rec'd this mobo dead
Got to start up after recapping the CPU VRM

Using my POST Card in the PCI slot, the CPU does a reset ok
After that, the mobo remains dead, the BIOS will not load

I grabbed an image of the installed BIOS with my Willem
Looking at the image, it seemed odd to me as if the address space
of the BIOS IC was not being used as it should.

Anyway, was able to discern this BIOS was an AWARD
as well as being an OEM BIOS from Tiny Computer (now defunct)

Grabbed an image of the BIOS in order to check it out with bit14
Was my attention to get the BIOS ID, OEM sign-on etc. in order
to ensure was correct BIOS.

This is the odd part, bit 14 cannot decompress the BIOS correctly
and only displays garbage

Anyway, as I suspected there was an issue with the BIOS,
I was hoping it my be possible to get a valid image from a forum member

Any hlp appreciated - thx
