Dataexpert EXP8449 VER 2.1

Manual: http://oldman.ixbt.com/mb/Expertboard_8449/exp84491.pdf

All I could find were corrupt downloads and dead links to the latest version of the BIOS, which seems to have been 2.3.

I've uploaded it to http://rainbow.host.sk/myfiles/DataExpert%20EXP8449/. There are two files - one is BIOS and the other one is flasher.

Rainbow, how big is your HDD? You seem to "happen to find" a lot of stuff in it... 8O

ajzchips: The BIOS directory is only about 1GB (including 570MB of the BETAs).
