Identify your Intel (OEM) AMI BIOS based motherboard

To update the BIOS of your Intel system, that is using an AMI BIOS, you'll first need to identify the motherboard used.

The general layout of the BIOS identification string is 1.00.xx.XYaz where:

  • xx: BIOS revision
  • XY: motherboard model
  • a: product level (0 / 1 / 2 /3)
  • z: OEM manufacturer that uses this Intel motherboard (optional)

Intel AMI BIOS OEMs list

As noted above the last letter ('z') of the Intel AMI BIOS id identifies the OEM for which Intel manufactured the motherboard. This part is optional; if it's not present, it means you have an original Intel motherboard not modified by an OEM. Based on whether you have an OEM version or not of an Intel motherboard, you may have to find your BIOS upgrade on the site of your OEM or on Intel's own site.

The following is a list of all OEM ids used in the Intel AMI BIOS IDs.
