Could you please confirm that your bios string begins with 62 and not 51 or 52?

You have a PcChips board however the model could be either M571 or M571LMR (or M571LR).

The bios string you have quoted is in fact incomplete as it is missing the project tag from the end of the string.

If you wish to see the full string press the pause key during bootup when memory is being counted and you should see the full bios string at the bottom of the screen. Press enter to continue the boot.

The provision of the full bios string would give us a better chance of positively identifying the board.

You need to be absolutely sure that you have identified the board correctly before selecting a bios upgrade and you have to be prepared to accept the risk that the flash could fail resulting in a dead board.

In other words you should have a damn good reason for upgrading the bios other than just "wanting to".

The only partial string with this start is

62-1012-001437-00101111-071595-sis630-m779mr-h

Not sure what has happened here. Weird...
