I continue my ongoing quest to find MR BIOS images for Opti 546 and 596 chipsets 😀
Evergreen Spectra is a CPU upgrade kit for Socket 5/7 motherboards that allowed the user to install an MMX/K6 CPU into the motherboard that didn't support it. It also came with a disk that had a collection of MR BIOS images.
That is why I'm trying to find the contents of the Evergreen Spectra Utilities disks version 1 and 2. Version 4 can be found here and version 3 is available on Archive.org. Unfortunately both seem to only have a collection of what I assume is MR BIOS 3.4.6 for Intel chipsets. Then again these were bundled with very late revision of Spectra, so there is hope that the original revision could have come with an earlier archive of MR BIOS images. It seems like the file name for the 596 version of MR BIOS is V076B508.
I've asked the same question previously in the MR BIOS thread and has PM'd the user Miasmark who says he has V1 of the disk, but haven't received a reply after almost one month. I hope a new thread can attract the attention of someone who hasn't been following that thread, so apologies for kind of double-posting here.
