Had a good look at that board with an 'expanded' view, no other markings. And a search for the "STD" or "EP4130" turned up nothing. Some clues: SIS chipset, and on one edge there is an extra pair of bus slots.. likely for added memory card.
You might be able to find a diagram of that motherboard at Stason.. http://stason.org/TULARC/pc/motherboards/#.VezWRn3mnts
Our Administrator evasive has an archive of older boards.. http://www.elhvb.com/

Tried that website, but found nothing. That's why I am here... :)
I will try the second link. Thanks!

Finding a photo match of your motherboard should reveal its parentage.
The info in the lower left corner of the BIOS screen is a positive ID of the system, and date of creation. But for that long string of characters, nothing positive. Only the "-02091-SISC" is significant, likely the 1991 conception date, with chipset class.
There were several options for entering the BIOS, mainly the [del] key during initial BIOS info pages. But there also was the [ctrl+alt+s], the [ctrl+alt+end], and [ctrl+alt+ent]. Also, the "F2" or "F10" key. A lot of older Compaq systems flashed a tiny box at the top of the screen, and you had only a second or two to press the "F10" key.
As to the 'CMOS display type mismatch", there should be a control line in the BIOS for setting. A lot of older motherboards did have a jumper for mono/color display. Not that many jumpers on the board, so all settings should be within the BIOS.
The 8 memory modules appear to be 72-pin SIMMS. I do not note a battery clip on that board. But 4 pins next to the keyboard socket are for an external battery, 3.6 volts nominal. Pin #1 should be the positive, #4 should be the negative or ground pin. Check with an ohmmeter to the keyboard shield.

That is an Octek board, currently trying to find out which of the "Panther" series it is.

It's not a Panther but the Octek Jaguar 2. It differs from the Jaguar 1 in having an additional slot next to the memory banks in which you can put an extension card for another 8 30-pin SIMMs.

Manual:
http://www.elhvb.com/mobokive/Archive/O ... Manual.zip

That is about as good as it gets. Thank you for making a screenshot of the bios, another string is known now.

For future reference (and Google searches):
Octek Jaguar 2 (EP4130-0005)
30-0100-006069-00101111-020291-SISC

If you can get this thing to actually boot from a disk, could you try and backup the bios with uniflash or flashrom? That would be nice for the collection.

Good find, evasive. I went through every image of 386 boards at Stason, nothing identical.. a few close, but not close enough.
Just found a listing of Octek board models at http://www.motherboard.cz/octek.htm but nothing described before socket 370 or socket A. Older Jaguar, Rhino, Fox and Panther are just name listings.

the 006069 AMI ID string got me on the trail of Octek, after that it was a matter of finding what board is having this chipset (85c320/85c330) and the memory layout was the last piece of the puzzle. the manuals I downloaded long ago.

I would try that, if you send me the dumper.exe.
