Another unknown 386 board

Postby LukeLovesRetro » 2019-8-04 @ 11:51

Hi all, have been working on a board I found on ebay some time ago though no info came with it. I have searched high and low for info on it to no avail. If anybody can id this board it would be greatly appreciated. info I have is PhoenixBIOS 1.01 A386SX (3050/60D R1.04) on boot but no bios id string. Bios contains MiTAC security feature, though I cannot id it as a MiTAC board. Thanks again for any help, this search is doing my head in. img link

I put in some time, but I came up empty. This is a touch nut to crack with that limited info.

That looks rather similar (design-wise) to the mainboard of one of my Acer machines.

So my guess: it's an Acer board.

Hi, Sorry i have not posted bios pics yet, have been very busy(children and 5 other retro projects, to much). Will try to post by the weekend. Many thanks for the efforts/info though, will look into those Acer boards and see what i can find. when i have time will also post pics of my other retro rebuilds/restorations. Thanks again for your time in looking into this board.

This looks a lot like the motherboard I had in my 386 I had many years ago. That was a DX33 but I know that there was some different versions of the computers.

From what I know Mitac produced lots of computers with different brands. Mine was a Facit but i have seen a few with other brands manufactured by Mitac.
