Novatech Laptop - Motherboard ID Required

Post by SteveyLa » Sun Nov 07, 2010 4:45 pm

Dear All.

My old Novatech Laptop (Many Uniwill parts) requires a BIOS Upgrade and I am struggling to ID the motherboard manufacturer.
The BIOS is AMIBIOS and the BIOS STRING is -

63-0100-000001-00101111-060605-ALVISO-255EI008-Y2KC

Can anybody help please ?

Thankyou,

SteveyLa

Uniwill 255 or 259 barebone series, used by many manufacturers
http://www.mxm-upgrade.com/UW259.html
also know as Alienware m5500, Ahtec Signal 259M, Addict Hyperaddict, CeBop Hel 750, Jewel Diamond 2600, Rock Pegasus 650, Vigor Ares and probably a dozen others.
The 255 aka Cebop Hell 700 and probably a load of others. The laptop manufacturer (Novatech) needs to provide you with that upgrade. The other solution would have been to try the generic Uniwill bios but they never released an upgrade:

the 255EI has no bios listed. So, in essence your stuck at this version unless Novatech has one.
