How to identify a motherboard manufacturer?
I have found an old PC (P100) with an old VX-Pro motherboard which has no markings on it as to who made it (no FCC-ID, manufacturer code, or motherboard number).
Does anyone know how to find aout who made this board, and perhaps get a manual for it (see what the jumper settings are).
The only thing I have to go on is the AMI BIOS and serial information that is shown on the boot screen, as given below...

...I've tried using the 'hadware identifiers' at places like www.windrivers.com and www.driverguide.com with no joy.
Anyone know where I cen get the details about this board? thanks.
Now you got the BIOS ID string - that's all it takes.
"I430VX" - means it's not a VXpro, but an Intel 430VX chipset. VXpro is VIA Apollo VP-1 in disguise, this is not what you have.
AMI BIOS vendor ID 008045 is VTech/PC-Partner. Now go visit us over at Wim's BIOS pages (where you could have found these informations yourself :-), go to the "BIOS updates" section and follow the links on the PC-Partner page.
