GVC was merged with BCM. You will probably not find your board there however, you seem to have one that was made for GOBI computers and they seems to have vanished completely...

Take a look to see if this matches your board.

Maybe Micronics changed it to its own Award BIOS...

Model Micronics C300-A06

Yeah I found that right afterwards.

I think the only option for an upgrade would be to call Unicore. They make/patch bioses...

If the problem is large harddisk support this is an option too:

Ask them to patch your bios...
