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

An example of a BIOS identification string is GTG4310H.86A.0011.P05

The first TWO sections of the BIOS Version indicate the BIOS ID code, which is GTG4310H.86A in our example. The syntax can be further broken down into:

  • 4A3NT0X0 : Motherboard model
  • 86: OEM manufacturer code
  • A: Board type
    • A = consumer desktop
    • B = corporate server
    • C = consumer server
    • E = workstation
  • 0011: BIOS Revision
  • P05: Release type (P = Production, D = Development, A = Alpha, B = Beta) and number

If your OEM manufacturer code is 86 - this means you have an Intel motherboard for which Intel will give support. If this code differs, this means you have a motherboard made by Intel for an OEM (eg. Dell). In this case you'll have to find BIOS updates and support at your OEMs site.

Some motherboards will have both an OEM version and an Intel version; for these it is possible to flash an Intel Phoenix BIOS on an Intel OEM board, when eg. your OEM didn't release the latest version available for the Intel non-OEM motherboard.

Intel Phoenix BIOS OEMs list

As noted above the second part of the Intel Phoenix BIOS ID denotes the OEM for which Intel manufactured the motherboard. Based on whether you have an OEM version 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 Phoenix BIOS IDs.
