The Iwill board manual..

For the Supermicro board all I can find is a BIOS:

The Abit board, no luck

Wasn't that Abit AB-PS6 a Socket 8 version for the Pentium Pro? Most models required a VRM (voltage regulator module) to match the CPU type.
http://stason.org/TULARC/pc/motherboards/#.UUSvBjfpDdJ has an extensive listing of almost all vintage motherboard types.. including jumper settings. You can also check http://www.elhvb.com/ for listings.
Same too for http://www.motherboard.cz/ which may offer a driver link.

Hi,
Thx for respond...

@Karlsweldt
all mobo's are Pentium Pro Socket 8 and for all of them is almoust impossible to find manuals... I have also new one from Gigabyte but not so good for OC as Iwill or Abit(?). Thats a reason why I am looking for Manuals... till now with no success...

So far I can see from PCB Iwill offers the posib. to OC CPU up to 300MHZ what means that this mobo uses 66MHz FSB (maybe 75 MHz too). In the time this board was produced max multiplier was (for many boards) 3.5, here seems to be 4 or 4.5 what is wery good and gives oportunity to OC good. The problem I have is that I cant Change VCore so I can OC at 233MHZ (PPro 200) stable. I can reach 240MHz but cant boot system or boot with typical problems caused due to low core voltage. How ewer I hope that one or another member, maybe, have the manual or can describe the Jumper Settings.

Cheers

The Pentium Pro models cannot over clock reliably. The CPU cache does run at full bus speed, and will be driven beyond stability. Maximum speed for the Pentium Pro was 233 MHz.
You might want to reference this URL link about the Pentium Pro models..
http://www.intel.com/support/processors ... 011161.htm
It just so happens I have a PDF file for the Iwill P6AN model. It might apply to your version. Zipped, it is about 1.7 MB. PM me if interested. Also noted on evasive's archive site link.. http://www.elhvb.com/
While the Pentium Pro was a stable, solid system, finding older 72-pin SIMM memory modules may be a hassle. eBay may be the only source.
Some older HP Netserver Pro models used the Pentium Pro setup.. but required registered (ECC) memory modules.. expensive!

I checked the old Abit website and it doesn't look like they ever had a manual for that board up on the site. They had the test data and the spec page, but that's it.

Time to inspect the boards themself for any settings tables printed on the front or the back. If you can see those and have trouble making that into something useful, make good clean pictures and put those online, then link to them or send them to my elhvb@outlook.com address, I'll put them online so we can work out a settings table.

As for drivers, most of the stuff will be recognized by any remotely modern OS. What are you planning on running these with?
