2A59CF2NC-01: Freetech 586F52XS ver. D
Intel Triton FX Chipset (socket 7)
i430FX

I didn't see an update available from from Freetech.com

I need a compatible bios update. Currently running Award Modular v4.50PG.

Please provide me a link where I can free download an update. Thanks!

2A59CF2NC points to a 586F61 model. Check board surface between the slots for an ASSYxxxxxxxx number and post it here.

I have older Freetech BIOS download page saved. The last row in the table says:
52xs-c2.bin Use the 61.bin file Intel Triton PCI Motherboard
the "52xs-c2.bin" is not a link and 61.bin is this:
12/29/1998-82430FX-2A59CF2NC-00
586F61/66 PCI GREEN BIOS
