- nobody will remove a sticker to see what chip is under?
Oh I will ! On your board you have two stickers, had a board similar and peeled one of the stickers off to check the chipset and then put sticker back on. Sure was a bit rough on the one corner that I used to peel it up but did not care. Was very important to figure out the main chipset since there was no Stasons/TH99/etc that had the board. What is more important than a sticker on a chipset (to me) is the sticker on the BIOS or the board itself. Chipset stickers mean nothing on old boards. Ever see what Amptron did on many of their boards ?

Oh great... I should have known better and use the programmer instead of relying on the NSSI to do the job... damn it 😒
NISSI has saved the split BIOS on a 286 for me properly but that could have just been by luck. Have not tried any other split bios boards with it..
Hate posting a reply and have to edit it because it made no sense 😁 First computer was an IBM 3270 workstation with CGA monitor. 🤣 Second computer a 286 12Mhz with real IDE drive ! After that came 386, 486, Pentium, P.Pro and everything after....
