I hope it's ok to post this question here, if not please advise.
I'm trying to Id the mainboard you can see in this photo album
I think it is a form of a SIS 471 but I as of yet don;t know for sure.
What I would like is to know if either of the CPU's in the photos can
be used and how to jumper the mainboard to accept and also BIOS info,
also what jumpers to use to acces the 72 pin Simm sockets along with
any additional info any of you may have.
Thanks for any help.
Re: 486 Mainboard ID
Best way to ID the board is to note the part number on startup.
You'll see it ( typically ) at the bottom of the screen...a long line
of numbers ( like AO1000567-XYZ1224-OOO1O1PDQ ).
Press the Pause/Break key to halt the boot process so's you can jot
the number down.
Then see here:
Hope that helps,
