I've only the model of my mother-board 6IBD+, but I don't know the productor.

I open the case, and I look on the chip of bios this number:
Winbond W29C020C-90B
9490I293878401SA

In the strip on the chip:
AWARD 1998
PCI/PNP 686
213492277

And when boot the computer there is this text:
AWARD MODULAR BIOS v4.51PG
6IBD+ V1.05

Can I know model and manufacture? because i want up-grade the BIOS, for install a new Hard Disk.

Thank for the attencion

Google is your friend.

Looks like Winmax/Azza.

thanks for your answer.
In the past days I search with google "6IBD+", and I found Winmax/azza "6IBD", but my mainboard is "6IBD+" , I download the manuals and is total different.

Thanks again

(the ID string is at bottom left of the memory count screen - and might say something like "08/19/1998-i440BX-W977TF-2A69KP89C-00")

Well, if I was desperate - there's only one 2 Mbit BIOS and that is for later versions of the 6IBD, which could explain the "+".

Anything printed on the board? If nothing, we can at least patch that BIOS.
I'm afraid that it's not Azza board.

...which supports the "Tekram" link according to y2k.nstl.com/html/tekram_y2k_compliant.html
This identifies it as Tekram P6BX-A or P6BX-An

TG = Tekram!! http://www.tekram.com

TRM-P6BX-A BIOS V1.08

You most probably have a rebadged version of the board.

Use the "Related Links" (previous link) to correctly identify it.

I do hope your board looks like this:

According to AWD64GB, that Tekram BIOS would support HDD >32 GiB but still has the >64GiB bug in the display routines.
INT13h Extensions...Present: new-style
=> BIOS already supports HDDs over 32GB!
