Finding The Right BIOS Flash

By FrstdOne ·
I've been scouring the internet trying to find the right software to flash my BIOS with. It's been a bit confusing and very aggrevating. I have a Micron PII 450 that I got towards the end of 1998. Now for the hard part. I know the BIOS software is from Award, version 2.2, but what I don't really know is what BIOS flash to get. On the motherboard it says it's a DR737. Micron's web site tells me it's a Presto motherboard. I also think it might be made by BCM or GVC. I really don't know. The number that appears on the bottom of the monitor when the system is booting is:

10/08/1998-i440BX-W977TF-2A69KB3FC-00.

I really want to get this update since I've tweaked my system as much as I know how by tinkering in the registry, msdos.sys, autoexec.bat, and config.sys files. I feel like I need this to be have done as complete a job as possible without overclocking (can't afford the risk).

I'll be checking back frequently for an answer and happily award my points once I get an answer that works.

I did this for a Micron last week. Go to http://support.micronpc.com/, click on Serial number lookup, enter your serial number and follow the link for motherboard updates. Because you look the computer up by serial number, you know that you're downloading the correct update.
