Ok 1292 code is Asus, board would be ISA-486SV2 v2.4?. There are different rev's of the motherboard but found that exact string in MAME machine BIOS collection, not sure if it is what you need but here it is....
If it works let us know so it can be added to this: https://www.ultimateretro.net/en/motherboards/811

Hate posting a reply and then have to edit it because it made no sense 😁 First computer was an IBM 3270 workstation with CGA monitor.

Yes!!!! Successful necromancy reviving a board. The asus bios worked and eliminated a problem I was having with successive beeping and locking up when restarting machine or saving to bios. It was weird...I think old bios got corrupted.

Btw, the asus board requires a ST m27c512 dip28 chip.

Thank you again and yes, please add to collection because we only have a later version for the isa 486sv2 board.

Great and noted ! Sometimes we get lucky when you include enough info like you did 😀 edit: seems it is same as 486 # 2 bios posted by predator99

Hello all. I have a request. I own a socket 5 Intel Advanced/EV Endeavour motherboard, early revision. It is a OEM Highscreen/Vobis edition, and has currently bios version 2 installed. I found version 6, but I can't flash it because it's not the H version. Does someone have a modified version 6 bios I can flash? 😀 It currently has 1.00.02.CB0H, but i'd like to flash it to 1.00.06.CB0. The reason i want to update is that the newer bios has support for bigger hdd. It's limited to only 2.1GB now, but my harddisk is 4.3GB.
thanks in advance for your response, Regards, Arno (Netherlands)

But didn't succeed..

Hi Arno,

The only other way this is going to work is using the recovery flash method. You need an actual bios update disk and a floppy drive for that.

Power off, remove the only jumper on the board, put the upgrade diskette in the floppy drive. Power on. Now the nail-biting begins.
You need to wait for the beep of the system booting, the floppy starts reading. If all goes well, you will hear two short beeps. Then and only then, you can power off the system, put the jumper back and power on.

Hi, tahnk you for confirming, bios added to the page. We are still missing pictures of the back of the board, so would you mind? 😁

Hi all

I am looking for the bios for a Soyo 030f2, I have dumped the one in my board and the lower half is all FF which seems wrong to me 😀

Thanks

Can you check if the board on the page is exactly the same? If not, can we have front and back pictures of yours? 😁

Hello.

My name is José Domingo, I live in the Canary Islands.
I recently purchased an Acer 915V 286. He displayed inconsistent characters at startup. But I was still able to launch it and run a game from the flogged disk. I thought the problem with inconsistent characters was because of the BIOS. Today I removed the eprom to back up with my MINIPRO TL866. My surprise was that my MINIPRO does not read them, but worse was that now my PC does not start.

Would anyone be so kind as to provide me with a copy of the high and low bios?

I know that a member of this forum has an ACER 915P and uses the same BIOS, RETROSPECTOR78.

I would be very grateful for any help.
Best regards.

Looks like this board:

If RetroSpector78 is still active you should send a message

It's a 28 pin chip on the board, think that's a 512Mbit chip max.

Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.

Okay I found some time to try this. But it didnt go as planned.
I decided to upgrade from 10002cb0h to 10002cb0 first and update to 10006 after that. I made a bootdisk, copied the extracted files from the 10002cb0.exe
The system responded the way described, but suddenly the pc speaker produced a never ending series of low beeps. The FDD led was still on, but nothing was read anymore. I waited for like 10 minutes, but nothing happened. It's clear that te bios recovery failed. The board also didnt post anymore, the powerled is blinking and nothing happens.
Also made the rookie mistake to not save the current bios to the floppydisk before proceeding.

As you all can imagine I am looking for a CBoH bios to restore the motherboard to a working state again, using the bios recovery, but maybe someone has a better Idea I can try.

Hello Everyone, I'm hoping someone can help. I acquired a few boards in a recent deal but one of them came without a BIOS chip. I've got a eprom programmer and a few 27c512 eproms but I've not been able to find a rom for this specific board and other rom's I've tried that list the chipset don't work.

The Board in question is a Free Computer 486F39X. http://www.uncreativelabs.de/th99/m/E-H/32152.htm It has a SIS 85C807/85C471 chipset on it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Good morning,
I got the jamicon-t5-v rev2.0 motherboard. Unfortunately no bios chip. Does anyone have a batch and information what the system should be there. I would be very grateful.

Could you please take a picture of your board and send it to us, the one we have isn't very good (front and black if possible)
