my bios string is listed for a vxpro II motherboard:
using this string, i found an update, (0807S.ROM) for what i thought to be an M570 motherboard. i tried to upgrade using 0807S.ROM with AMIFL632 from a floppy. it appeared to be successful, however; when i rebooted, the pc rebooted to a black screen and the monitor apparently was getting on signal. i am afraid i have ruined the board, and i would appreciate help in verifying any errors i have made.
thank you for any help.

thanks, i did use that page you told me about, and found it to be an m559. now that i have flashed the wrong bios, where do i go from here? should i start my searches for a new board on ebay? heh. im not sure i have the tools to remove the bios chip. if there are any online guides, please point me in the direction of them.

If you have another board with the same kind of flash bios chip you have the hardware, using uniflash you have the software, performing a hotflash is something Rainbow can tell you everyting about.
