Is this Board bootable to get the Bios-ID ?
Seems very old - no Multi I/O Controller integrated - Pre I430FX
Is it possible to look below the stickers on the Chipset?
From the white colour of the ISA-Slots it may be a relabeled ECS Mainboard .
Maybe the guys from the Pcchips Lottery know more or wanna get this photo .

I think it's got a mate. :lol:

FG-P5 (unknown).


The white ISA slots are a strong indicator of an ECS board though, it seems to be a tradition of theirs from way back like this 486 board from them.

Hell Aussie,
other than the white slots that it that matches. The board in question is one of tbe unknown (mystery) PC Chips boards. The chipset is an ALi (not exactly sure of the number). and as far as getting a BIOS string - wont much matter. Model unknown even with the BIOS string.

If the jumper below chip 532 near the crystal is a single JP9 for two jumpers I think I've got a match:

Well I guess I'll just have to boot the sucker. Hopefully it survived the journey from its former system to my lab. Though there were piles of other mobos on top of it, so who knows...

Will post later.

Wait a minute, I thought PcChips was producing boards for Fugutech, now you are telling it the other way around ???

FG suggests FuGutech indeed.

Well I am having issues getting this thing to boot. I'll have to double check the settings again, but she was a no go last night for a BIOS string...
