roffle, are you using a HP Pavillion 6640C? If so, then the answer is Yes! I have reports from several HP 6640C users indicating that the Award P5S-VM Rev 1006 BIOS from Asus works flawlessly on their machine and already increases performance by 5-10% with the original CPU installed! And with my pat...

@KachiWachi

The original 12/07/98-i430VX-2A59GHTBC-00 BIOS I used only says: PC Chips M-520 (Rel 1.1A) but I believe it is a type "S" BIOS.

The BIOS is patchable for 128GB and extented AMD support. Let us know what you need! :wink: Jan. Well, that, of course! ;) There wouldn't happen to be undocumented Vcore settings, eh? If I could shoehorn a K6-2 450 onto this board, that would give me the board for Box 07 for Retro-LAN at Fandemoniu...

I've looked into the M520 12/07/98 BIOS and it seems to have IDE HDD support up to 32GB. CPU support includes the K6-2 and K6-III up to 400MHz but Write-Allocation support is limited to the K6 and original K6-2. So no WA for the K6-2CXT and K6-III, and the K6-2+ and K6-III+ are not supported at all....

It took me a bit longer than expected but the GA-586AT S Ver.1.32 BIOS is also patched now. I found about the same things to fix as in the 586ATV BIOS: K6-2CXT, K6-III, K6-2+, K6-III+, and Cyrix MII 4.0x multiplier support. I also fixed the 32GB and 64GB bugs for 128GB HDD support.

Space Marine, have you been able to confirm that from the board's markings and is there a Rev. nbr. printed on the board? Sources on the net show more...
