Extremely tired of AMI 386 BIOSes and their HDD size limitations i decided to try a MR-BIOS that would work with my 386 motherboard. While looking around i noticed that finding MR-BIOS images was not that easy. Luckily my 386 motherboard uses UMC 481/482 chipset and there's a MR-BIOS around for it. I use it now and can't think of going back to AMI BIOS again, system speed increased slightly, i can now use a 1GB CF card without any issues and without having to use any drive overlays. The BIOS is very configurable and i really like the keyboard shortcuts for Turbo and cache disable.
Unfortunately for other users, with different boards and different chipsets, finding a suitable MR-BIOS might not be that easy, in fact it might be impossible.
There seems to be a couple of other versions around, for ALI and OPTI 386 chipsets, but i would like to call out everyone to work together for a repository where we can gather all these MR-BIOS versions to be available whenever anyone wants to use them.
I want to encourage users with boards with MR-BIOS upgrade ROMS to dump their contents and make them available. All we need to do is to find a place to host them, maybe VogonsDrivers.
