I've found this http://www.elhvb.com/mboards/a-trend/ma ... 5/1545.doc but it's unreadable - I cannot open it anywhere. It does not look like a word document inside... OpenOffice can't read it too.
The 1545A2 is OK but the jumpers don't match my board.

Hi

vi found "Microsoft Powerpoint" within the document.
The XP version of PPT cannot read it, but there were several breaks in the ppt document format.
Maybe an older viewer can handlie that.
If that doesn't work either, vi makes the text quite readable, so one can get at least the jumper settings from the documant.

Bye

Found that PowerPoint crap inside too. I've tried to open it using PowerPoint 97 Viewer (because I don't have full PowerPoint installed) and it failed too. I'll try something old for Windows 3.x (v4.3 or something like that) :D

IMHO there are some Powerpoint slides embedded in the document.

The jumper settings were readable by a text viewer so I set up the board according to that. The board works fine (a BIOS reflash was needed because it always locked up at the configuration table with POST code 63h).
There are 2 versions of this board - ATC-1545 (uses BIOS 3.2N - 2A5UNA2IC) and ATC-1545A (uses BIOS 3.5S - 2A5UNA2JC). They have different super I/O chips and jumpers. The Award BETA BIOSes (from 1996) for both these boards are bad - there is a bug causing Plug&Play not to work (Windows does not detect any onboard devices) - so use the official 3.2N or 3.5S.
OPTi Viper M chipset will be supported in UniFlash v1.37 :)

However, the document remains a mystery...

If the document can be deciphered enough we can update the info to a TH99 style format (i.e. create an HTML page).

Will see what I can come up with unless Edwin has another idea on how to view this doc properly.
