Hi everyone,

I can only find an upgrade for AMI-Bios.
My BIOS-ID: 05/20/1999-i440LX-W977-2A69JM4MC-00
Board: MS-6159
(Infomations from the Ctinfo-Program)

The MSI-Hompage offers only upgrades for AMI, no word of AWARD-BIOS.

Please, can anyone help me, solving my Problem ?????

Thanks a lot

What is it you need the upgrade for?
Flash your BIOS at your own risk.

Remember that you can crossflash from one brand to another. It's explained in MicroStar's site.

Your AWARD BIOS might me for an OEM version of the board.

Very interesting. Compare these pages:

and
http://y2k.nstl.com/html/micro-star_y2k_compliant.html

tell me what you think, MS-6159 or MS-6160????

The only award bios available for the MS-6160 is the original release BTW. Hmmmm....

OT Note:Sky is a Dutch firm, they are about 10km away from the place I work, BTW.

There's an Award Bios but same version as yours installed (VMP10B2d * MS-6159)
