I doubt if it would be even possible to identify this board. But I shall describe it to you the best I can, giving all information that's on the board:

Intel Pentium chipset
Socket 7
AT form/power supply
3 PCI slots
4 ISA slots
4 SIMM slots
Cache memory chip slot

Award BIOS PCI/PNP 586 S/N: 027784632
ODIN RTC OEC12C887A
Intel PCIset and VIA chips onboard as well

Stickers found on board:

Two stickers found on bottom ISA slot: one barcode - 00031051101749, A136-0702
Written sticker on back: SKY-R 60216 R8833

(The links say TXT files, but they are actually to images - it's a trick to fool anti-hotlinking engines on hosting websites. Just click and image should appear normally.)

Thank you so very much! I sorta figured it may have been a Tyan, but for some reason I can't find that perticular model number -anywhere- on the internet! I can find S1466 and S1468 alright, but no S1467. Weird. Plus I can't find any documentation on then, either, including pics and jumper setting.

Oh well, atleast I'm a few steps closer to finding what I need to know. Thank you, again!

I got in touch with a Tyan technical representative, and I was informed that the S1467 is a rare special release, with only a few hundred units being produced, mainly as demo machines for certain retailers, making my perticular motherboard a rare bird.

Hopefully with the information I got on it (including manual), I can resurrect it.

Thanks again.
