I am having a heck of a time finding the upgraded BIOS for a Gemlight motherboard. GMB-P56IPS V0 also known as a PAM-0056I E0. everytime I think I have it, I hit a closed down web site. If you know where I can get this upgrade, you are a much smarter person that I am. Thank you.

Haven't tried hard enough, eh?


BTW, it's one of the most recent BIOS updates I've ever seen for an Intel 430VX board:

(2A59GG39) DTKPAM0056I.P02.01.12-V1.12

Note: the website mentions support for over 8.4GB. What they surely meant was support for HDDs over 32GB!!

DTK has the best support for old boards. Be sure to back up your current BIOS before flashing - I know that some i430FX DTK BIOSes have problems with PCI IRQs which can be easily fixed if you have BIOS backup (don't know about i430VX).
The BIOS date is pretty new for i430VX board, but seems that it does support HDDs only up to 32GB. But that can be easily fixed too.
