Re: Help Identifying very RARE motherboard

whichever it is, we have basic layout info and jumper settings here:

We'll update that page accordingly when we're out of maintenance mode.

Re: Need to identify this old bios, its a tough one

So, starting on this new project, we sometimes dig up old info. Your board is called 486 ASIC II

http://www.win3x.org/uh19/motherboard/show/5682

We would like to have a good board picture and a bios dump if possible.

Re: 80GB PC-Chips A101 V1.4

I will see what I can do. Usually if a bios was patched only for 32GB+ not 64GB+ it means it had an issue. However seeing this one is done long ago, maybe before the 64GB limit could be tackled, it might work.

Re: Motherboard Soyo SY-7SBB dead

It does not need to be patched I believe and even if it needed that, I first want to make sure the bios cannot be the problem.

Re: GIgabyte g1 guerilla 3tb+ support broken in official bios

Reset the bios to defaults before and after the bios update. That usually takes care of anything left behind in the DMI pool data area. You have tried both disks separately? You are sure not one of them is dead by itself?

Re: Need MS-5108 BIOS

This is fantastic! I'm not sure what harddisks you tried to run on this thing, they might be too big or unformatted or whatever. It is possible the IDE controller was fried somewhat because of the misplacement of the chips here and there. One big question though, could you please send the bios to ei...

Re: Motherboard Soyo SY-7SBB dead

You want to check if the memory is seated properly all the way into the slot and/or if there is any debris/dust in the memory slot.

Bios: from the soyousa server as attachment.

Re: 80Gb Hitachi Deskstar with SOYO SY-6BB

It looks like the 7SBB has been tested and works with a Maxtor 60GB. It is patched until 128GB, usually if it is beyond 32GB and working with 128GB patch, until 120GB disks work too.

Re: 80Gb Hitachi Deskstar with SOYO SY-6BB

Ok, so just putting the 32GB clipping jumper on and NO jumper for master/slave (setting it for single drive only) is not working either? That is indeed odd behaviour. Let me see if I can find similar cases and a possible solution.

Re: Looking For Bios Update 64-0100-000001-00101111-120414-LfdHvdImc$HM55T008

Most likely your mainboard is marked: H55MS4G8-D3 Brand of Azirox and eSonic have been mentioned. None of which have a website. In some places it is claimed it is an OEM board made by Biostar, however I cannot find any proof of that. The only mention of a bios backup is here: https://translate.googl...

Re: 80Gb Hitachi Deskstar with SOYO SY-6BB

I checked and the bios backup you gave is binary identical to the one I patched. What I am going to do is using a different patcher for the bios. Oh one more notice, I know WD harddisks do not like to be set for master if there is no slave disk, they will search almost forever before allowing the sy...

Re: 80Gb Hitachi Deskstar with SOYO SY-6BB

Hi,

The bios we have is for the V1.0 revision of the board. You most likely have a newer release for which you need 1a7 or 1a8 instead of 1a6. I will patch 1a8 and attach it to my next posting.
