I'm using the TX Pro II, M571 Mainboard. The init string is:


When I used the AMI identify program it detected it is M571 Pc Chips board.

I found some BIOS Updates, but I don't know what version of PCB I have. There are three to choose: 3.2A, 5.1 and 7.0

How do I get to know this information? Is there a program that can give it to me? What happens if I use a bios for 5.1 on a 7.0?

On a PC-Chips motherboard the version no. is usually printed in the corner near the keyboard connector.

Forget the 5.1 version. It really belongs to the M571LMR family (more recent). Just remember versions 3.0, 3.2, 3.2a and 7.0.
In your case, a misflash will make you lose floppy access, etc., but your board will most probably boot.

Occassionally you will find the version number under a small, round, white quality control sticker, sometimes behind the first ISA slot as well.
