That's actually the one I was looking at already. I guess I left off the -VM in my title


But glad to hear that it's a good board.

Do you remember if it's like our boards where it can only boot from a PATA drive if it's on the main ATA bus, and that's the only one that reads optical drives?

I didn't even think of it until last night, I'll be re-using their PATA (although it might be fried, I have to check it out tonight, it wasn't working in an old enclosure of mine, have to plug it into my system directly). But they have 2 optical drives. My guess is it's the same, since it uses the ICH7 southbridge, which means I'll have to break the news that they have to spend MORE money as I'll have to buy a SATA drive. That would be easier if their drive is actually dead, but sad as they never back anything up and there's lots of pictures on this drive.

Thanks, I'd appriciate that. If it does, can you let me know which BIOS it needs so I can get it ready? I can always pull my Presler out and use it to run the system and flash the BIOS. Or maybe I'll get lucky and it will come with the right BIOS already loaded

You would need bios version 0406 to support that Presler. I would bet a heafty amount that it is allready flashed for that bios.
The same bios will also support the 6x1 processors

here you can get that bios

But I need it to run a 5xx series CPU wowza

I sure as heck am not giving my sister my Presler!!!!

I just meant, if it didn't run the 5xx series out of the box, I could use my Presler to set it up and flash the BIOS to be able to use the 5xx.
