It's been months, what became of this? I just bought an old board without even thinking about it... and now I can't find the manual or bios or drivers.

Horun was archiving everything they could, did it make it somewhere?

I did get all the manuals and last BIOS for the Intel boards that were removed but have yet to upload them. Had conflicting suggestions as to how they should be cataloged so put it off over the holidays. Will up them to Archive starting tonite. I did not get the drivers but most boards use standard Intel drivers that have also been already archived. Attached a DIR TXT of the older Legacy boards (~3Gb files) but will not up a 3Gb file set. Want to break it into more manageable 200mb +/- parts

added: also have a another ~2Gb of the newer boards (61 series thru 81 series) that will be a separate group

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....

Ok upped the Legacy boards to Archive .org

edited: Did not add Metadata for each board so searches on exact board models will probably not show this archive.
They go from the older 430 series boards thru D975 series. Will up the newer ones tomorrow if I have time.

link: https://archive.org/search.php?query=intel%20 … 20bios%20manual

or look at my uploads linked to my same nym used here:

I upped the Intel Legacy boards manuals and BIOS to Archive org. Still have the newer (like Q77) to upload and also some older Pentium boards to go.
If you search Intel motherboard manual OR Intel motherboard bios, the archives will show.

Cool thanks.

I ended up downloading the 342GB tar archive from archive.org as I want the drivers too and for safekeeping.

Yeah I grabbed it back in November, figured it didn't hurt to have a few different file resources.

Does anyone perchance have a lead on the old network drivers that were wiped out? I'm looking for W98 compatible ProSet driver packages (specifically W98 driver for Pro/1000MT). The driver packages left on Intel's website seem to have deprecated the W9x content and I have been struggling to find an archive of these drivers. I did download the ~70GB tarball from archive.org and it does not seem to have much in the way of NIC software.

I downloaded manually all the BIOSes I could and organized into Socket/Chipset/Board/Version it's almost 2GB in size.

I don't suppose you could share this?

I have one of the larger dumps shared by another poster but it's missing an in-between BIOS revision that I'm trying to hunt down.

If you search Intel motherboard manual OR Intel motherboard bios, the archives will show.

Thanks all for the excellent work, I've been scouring for the z77 BIOS updates, particularly the DZ77BH-55K board.
Wondering if it was up and perhaps some help pointing it out. I've stumbled around archive.org with no luck.

Sorry have not upped those yet. I have a day off tomorrow from work so should be able to upload them by tomorrow night.

Ok uploaded the newer boards manuals and bios. Nothing like being #10,280 in queue to finish a page 🤣
Search Archive.or for Intel motherboard bios or Intel motherboard manual and you should see the archives, they have generic black background with Parthenon style pillers

Hello all. Firstly, this is great work. Thank you to everybody who has contributed. I recently bought a cheap DH61WW to test out a batch of 2nd and 3rd gen processors I picked up a while ago, hoping that the BIOS would already have been updated and expecting it to be easy if it hadn't. No such luck. It's sporting a 0020 from 2011. From what I can gather I'll need 0041 (possibly?), 0048, 0099 and 0120. The last two are included in the 61 series archive.org download and I have a 0052 from rebyte.me but they all give invalid header errors. Are earlier versions of the BIOS available too? It's entirely possible I'm missing something obvious.

Yeah, you will need to flash 0041 before flashing to 0048 -> 0099 -> latest BIOS. Found this (how I haven't noticed that before during archival is beyond me): https://kb.stonegroup.co.uk/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=267

Also, apparently found DH61WW...
0041 BIOS on rebyte.me: BIO, BI, EB
and 0048 BIOS on rebyte.me: BIO, BI, EB

Guess I should update my Desktop section of the Intel archive sometime.

Computer in my collection that had too much work done is... Compaq Armada 1573DM!

- Original DSTN panel replaced with an HPA panel
- Left hinge repaired twice
- Front panel replaced twice
- Replaced busted inverter
- Chassis replacement

Yes, the last BIOS and manuals are in this batch, is about 150Mb download. The archive is broken into subdir's for each board:

Yep, all the home motherboards' files were deleted. However there are some places where the files can be found, any specific file you need?

BTW: Nice board the D850MV. I had a D850EMV2 many years ago, which sadly I gifted to a cousin, who did not care for it properly.

I have not looked into it deeply yet, but usually just the latest bios update would do. Did anyone manage to mirror their bios archive before deletion?

I hope it's a nice board. Will be my first rdram system. Thinking of running win2k inside a classic black Dell case.

Cool, for sure the board will not disappoint you, it's great. Remember that RDRAM allows no empty memory sockets: you either put a memory stick or a memory "terminator" module on all of them.
