As far as I can tell, my mobo is some chinese crap, and even an ancient one. But I have to live with it, for the moment. I kinda need an update for higher HDD capacity (over 8,4GB) and USB support (which is currently unavailable). Also the boot devices options are pretty scarse: A,C and C,A :(
BIOS type: Award Modular BIOS v4.51PG
BIOS ID: 06/20/97-i430VX-2A59GU79C-00
OEM sign-on: UT-5VA intel 430VX PENTIUM BIOS VER-1.5 06/20/97
Super I/O: Winbond 877F (use 87h) rev 0 found at port 3F0h
Chipset: Intel Triton 430VX rev 1
CPU: P55C @ 200MHz
Other specs would be: 4 ISA, 3 PCI, 1 DIMM, 4 SIMM, AT power, Socket 7, 256kB cache, an ODIN chip near the battery.
The following link will show you the drawing of the motherboard in pdf format: . Sorry for the double image; it was meant for printing only.
Lately I have some problems with HDD recognition for Quantum types: doesn't "see" it after restart or reset; I have to power off and then back on to get it back in BIOS detection. That's another good reason for a BIOS update. So, please, any help would be greatly appreciated.
