Hi,

I have a ServeLinux Rackmount 1U Mini with an unknown Mainboard. The Bios-Code is

63-1029-001420-00101111-071595-VIA69X-1AASS013-F

Unfortunatly I can not find any manufacturer to this Bios-ID. It is an AMI-Bios.

Here a little more information about boards features:

00:00.0 Host bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8605 [ProSavage PM133] (rev 01)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8605 [PM133 AGP]
00:07.0 ISA bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C686 [Apollo Super South] (rev 40)
00:07.1 IDE interface: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C586A/B/VT82C686/A/B/VT8233/A/C/VT8235 PIPC Bus Master IDE (rev 06)
00:07.2 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. USB (rev 1a)
00:07.4 Bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C686 [Apollo Super ACPI] (rev 40)
00:0a.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
00:0f.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
00:10.0 RAID bus controller: Promise Technology, Inc. 20265 (rev 02)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. ProSavage PM133 (rev 02)

Has anyone a hint for me where to find a bios-update?

Best Regards
Dusty

As it is a Windows-Tool and I'm running pure Linux (no wine installed) I have no chance to try it.

Found a windows-user who generated a boot-cd for me. It is an IDOT.

Thanx ;)

As at http://www.idotpc.com/TheStore/Peripher ... ?Cate.id=5 ? Is it really a VIA Epia ? What's the CPU ?
This could be handy when people are trying to match the BIOS ID next time.

Not an EPIA, all EPIA boards have Award bios, not AMI.
