From what I can gather, EPoX is no longer in business, or at least they're no longer answering email, or the phones at any of their US addresses, and their FTP website is no longer online.

I need to be able to run larger hard disks on my mobo. Where can I get an updated bios for my KP6-BS? Specifically, I'd like their 9/15/2000 2mb upgrade. Thanks.

you need to have a 2mbit chip on your board as well but you know that. I'll see what I can find.

bs600915.exe from http://www.elhvb.com/mobokive/Archive/E ... index.html

Good thing we make backups of bioses and manuals every now and then...

a few people in fact. hardware junkie from motherboards.org started out with a private FTP-server where Toby B and me uploaded some stuff. Later ajzchips added some and I think Kuriaki has put in quite a bit too. It's been online and offline a few times in different incarnations, we hope to keep it online forever now :-)
