Yeah, looks like it. I will test some stuff tomorrow. I don't really expect anything to work anyway 😀
I uploaded some of your images in their respective pages we have 😀
Now for your second suntac 286 I noticed something very strange.
It looks exactly like my 286 that I uploaded here http://www.win3x.org/uh19/motherboard/show/456
However mine has "286H" mention, and yours doesn't ... But it doesn't end here !
Your ROM says "KP286HF" ... but this is actually a motherboard name !
But the board has a different layout ... What the hell ?
As for the Microstar 286 board, I can already tell that it won't work ... Someone seems to have taken off the crystals from your board x) (maybe even more stuff is missing ? who knows). Crystals are cheap and easy to install tho, so it might be worth trying new crystals 😀
Will you dump the bioses ?
Great work on the pages. I have plenty more similar images of my motherboards. I can upload them somewhere.
http://www.win3x.org/uh19/motherboard/show/456 - this is so-called Suntac 286P (TH99 calls it that), not 286H. Bioses may have been swapped in the past. This motherboard works OK. The other suntac doesn't seem to work.
J-Bond fortunatelly works fine, so is the Soyo SY-5T 430HX mobo. VLB 486 seems pretty much dead (although CPU gets warm, no activity on the postcard though), XT motherboard seems dead (but it had ISA pin 9 - +12V shorted to data pin, so I guess it's fried), yeah I noticed the NEAT is missing OSCs and one of the chips, but I have some broken NEAT motherboards so I may try to fix it in the future...
I will dump BIOSes but it will take me a while, I don't have time for this right now...
