Can anyone identify this board?
The BIOS is damaged and it's impossible to extract its ID.

Did you peel off the AWARD sticker? I have a slight feeling it may show H.T., in spite of the fact that VER:1.0 is not written near the keyboard connector.

It's not my board - but it's possible that I'll have it for a while (to fix it...)
I doubt that it's PC Chips board - considering Winbond Super I/O and VIA KBC.
BTW.: The BIOS chip seems to be Atmel - according to the arrow that's visible near the Award label.
The remains of the BIOS show that it was not very old - there was support for e.g. DMI and LS-120.

I had to verify first it was the same board. Page is updated. And this is the Acorp variant BTW.

I got the board. Because the previous owner could not get it to work, it's mine. The jumper settings are terrible, but after some fiddling, it seems to work.
