Micron Seattle 2

Postby ether.real » Tue Jun 18, 2002 7:46 pm

I am looking to make sure I got the right BIOS for this board...appears to be a Micron Seattle 2 board with the 440BX2 chipset. Here's the pertinent info:
Bios string:
4S4EB2X0.05A.0007.P06

Marks:
2 ISA
4 PCI
1 AGP
Onboard Yamaha Sound
3 SDRAM slots
450 PIII CPU
2 USB

Model Number on Case: SE440BX2-T-PIII450
Micron Web site cold not do a lookup on the serial number, lists several mobos for this model type.
the BIOS I d/l from the Micron site advertises itself as:
se440bx2_16.exe
version P15.0016 for SE440BX2 with onboard Yamaha PS-1 sound for MBD001109-xxxx mobos only. Is this the correct BIOS to flash??

thanks in advance,

Intel Motherboard SE440BX-2

Seems to be the correct naming config. Found P15 here:

Yours seems to be the most up to date version...double check Intel...

Micron vs. Intel

According to the Intel site, I should only use their BIOS if the second group of numbers is.86a. Mine is .05a. Supposedly, this is due to OEM customization or some BS like that...is that true?

Common question here with OEM builds....honestly it might go either way if you flash with the intel bios. It should work, but if there was some major hardware change it might not function quite right...or not at all...

The BIOS you found looked good. I would flash with that.
