Please follow these guidelines for the Subject header of your post.

1. If your board boots, post your BIOS id string. (Have you tried to figure it out yourself, first?)

2. If your board doesn't boot, post your chipset or any model numbers listed on the board.

Please always post your complete Bios-ID and the Bios Eval / OEM-Signon !!
This gives us the maximum information needed to find a correct Bios for you !

If you already have a Bios-ID the please visit the AMI/Award Bios-ID pages from our main page - should be easy for you to find at least your mainboard manufacturer !

Easy way to get the Bios-ID and the Bios OEM Signon/Eval is by using the Unicore Bios Agent from our main page using the link in the top left corner (left of wimsbios Logo)
Please post only the part of the Bios Agent report as the examples show !
