Chaintech 6BTM-M101 AGP

04/09/98-i440BX-W977TF-2A69KC39C-00

Award Modular BIOS v4.51PG

04/09/1998

Pentium II-MMX at 233MHz (CPUID:634, MicroCode ID:0033)

Award Plug and Play BIOS Extension v1.0A

I have 6BTM0C23.bin and 6BTM0505.bin

any preference which to use?

also, intend to use Uniflash.exe (as opposed to flash753.exe or Awdflash)

FWIW, it recognized 4 ea 256MBs!! (0.917Gig ;-)

Having problems loading XP SP2 - didn't seem to care for the Riva 128ZX AGP (no XP drivers found...yet), trying an S3 PCI next
...thanks in advance

associated with backdoor viruses or ram problems.

the 0505 is about 5 months newer 05/05/2000, the other is dated 12/23/1999

when flashing, please put in just one of the original known working memory sticks only. After flashing the new bios you can try the 256MB sticks again.

many thanks... again ;-)
had swapped out the 256ers with 128s, just for fun...
install is running along quite smoothly now
will re-try the 256s (one at a time) after flashing BIOS

FWIW, the 256s are "lo-density"(?) i.e. 16-chip (8 per side)
...or am I chasing rabbits? (again)

You did well to get lo-density modules:
