Hi everyone!

I have an old maxdata computer, with a special P4S800-MX-S motherboard.
I doesn't support 1680x1050, and i would like to know if someone could mod me a bios for this...

I have a link to the latest bios for this motherboard (can't put a link, since i have under 10 posts...), which is, again, special, as it uses an AMI bios (512k), instead of an AWARD bios (256k), therefore the standard bios from the original P4S800-MX can't be used on this one.
I can attach the ROM file if needed (the file i linked is the original extractor from Maxdata).

would be nice if someone with a real floppy drive could unpack the bios and upload it somewhere (megaupload, etc.)
the archiver doesn't like virtual floppies *sigh*

bios is here
If you email me include [WIMSBIOS] in the subject.

I found a floppy, and wrote the bios on it.
I still can't provide links, but i uploaded the bios on megaupload, with id : 1H680MX6, if someone want to take a lot at it...

It looks like this bios may be compatible with widescreen resolutions (which the 1008-1 that I tested is not), as i am able now to use 1680x1050 successfully.

No information about that though in the changelog... Weird...

I have used the floppy in order to update the bios, i don't know if asus update would have worked (with the .ROM file), but was not really willing to try... :)


The thread can be locked, as my issue is now solved.
