I successfully modd'ed two Athlon XP 3000+ (Barton Model 10) to run on
my ASUS A7M266-D main board (Yes, it is SMP). I updated my BIOS towards
the newest available version, this is 1011 BETA 3. There ARE indeed
slight problems I link to this BETA BIOS.
My question to You guys'n'girls: Which is or are the oldest ASUS BIOS
versions capable to run Athlon XP 3000+ which are also known as Model
10. (All AFAIK ;-) ???
I did not test the two CPUs with older versions and I cannot do this
because of this:
In case the Bartons wouldn't run, I had to remove those and reuse the
former CPUs (Athlon MP 1600+) to re-flash the BIOS with the Beta
version. You understand the trouble? ;-)
I would appreciate advices in this question about BIOS versions. Hints
towards finding hints are also welcome
Re: BIOS version for ASUS A7M266-D and Barton Model 10
The best place for advice on A7M266-D is http://forums.2cpu.com .
They have a search page at http://forums.2cpu.com/search.php .
They have all sorts of tricks documented there, such as what
BIOS settings to use (disable the MP check), and using AthlonXP-M
mobile processors or a pair of Geode processors on the board.
Try a search on "A7M266-D" for more info.
The only "Model 10" entry shown in the Asus official support page,
requires 1011 beta 2.
