Looking for BIOS upgrade for Intel Triton 430TX rev 1

Post by ancientcomputers » Thu Apr 12, 2018 2:38 am

A special thank you to Edwin (and anyone else) for taking the time to moderate this board.

What I have:

Intel Triton 430TX rev 1
PhoenixBIOS 4.0 Release 5.12
Win NT 4.0 SP 6a

Do you need the Superchip I/O number too?

I want to upgrade to PhoenixBios 4.0 Release 6 to get around the 8gb limit.

I have the winphlash utility but am not sure how to find the right bios upgrade.

The computer is NOT connected to the internet.

Your site has numerous 32-bit phlash/winphlash versions. Which one is right for me?

Thanks!

The utility is the tool to flash the actual bios file with. Anyway, I suspect this is a branded system, Dell, DEC/Digital/Compaq or something. We might have better luck finding _something_ in that way. Just PhoenixBios is waaaay to generic.

Thanks for replying.

Digital 5100 5200 M Version 1.11 .

I believe the motherboard is a Digital 54-25334-02 (M03).

Thank you very much!

Anyone else who seeks this BIOS update should not forget to download the Crisis Recovery Disk. Hopefully no one will ever need it.
