Full Yes Board. Looking for Bios now

FYI-P55C1MMX 2A59GF3BC-00 i430VX ALi 513x
FYI-P55C1MMX 2A59GF3BC-00 i430VX SMC 669

2 versions, you'll have to open the case and check the markings on the chipset. Bios will be different for each version

Could be a tough one to find, all my searches have drawn a blank so far. Full Yes or FYI as they are known went out of business some years ago. Maybe someone will have one on their Hard Disk.
