Post 600.
Wanted it to be somewhat big.
Didn't expect something LITERALLY big.


Anyway, my IT teacher gave me a dual slot 1 motherboard. Couldn't get an OS to install, so he gave it to me.

4*PCI.
2*Slot 1, with PIII550s in them
2*ISA
0*AGP

# on what I think is NB:
SB82558B
L012ID84
SL2P4
(M)(C)1996


Let me know if more info is needed.

I wouldn't be surprised if Evasive is first to reply lol.

Yeah I found that one too via google but just having the Exxxx number is like trying to find a needle in a haystack...

It is big, dual slot1 with the right number of ISA/PCI and the right network chip. Not many contenders there...

Something like this eBay listing? A lot of those server motherboards with dual processors had SEPARATE memory banks for each CPU.. and you may need to populate all banks with identical memory. If DIMM slots, then look for PC-100 or PC-133 type memory that is ECC or buffered. Non-buffered memory may not work! Same if the memory slots are the older 72-pin SIMM type.
Additionally, both CPUs may use only one master clock for the FSB. Ensure that both SEPP CPUs are identical. There also may be a separate 6-pin power connector for 3.3 volts from the PSU.
One other note.. if being a 1996 vintage, the hard drive capacity may be limited to less than 10 GB recognition in the BIOS!

Yep. Karl and E are right.

Spot on.


I already have 2*500 PIIIs, and 4*256MB Crucial PC100 ECCs.




Thanks again, MoBo.O staff!

For IDE/PATA disks maybe. Given this is a server board, SCSI is a better choice, especially since it has onboard Ultra SCSI...

@AmEv: be careful with bios updates and check if the memory is indeed on the compatibility list for this board, it is very finicky with memory...

Ah those were the days, the Intel Nightshade board...

Info: When my teacher gave it to me, he had a 160GB IDE, a 10GB IDE, and a 9GB SCSI in the case all were in.
Good news: I installed Ubuntu 10.04 successfully on the 9GB.
Great news: BIOS and Ubuntu see the 160BGB and successfully mount it.
Excellent news: Our family now has a file server with 1GB RAM!


F@H to come.
