Some boards had officially supported BIOS updates, and others had some hacked ones created by users. I’ve looked on EBay, but couldn’t find one. Took me a while to actually get it booting reliably. But the worst part is that I was intending to use it in my floppy imaging machine, to free up my AT power supply for a board, but it doesn’t work with my 4-drive floppy controller. Set that to “disabled”.

I haven’t read further to see how it turns out, but board revisions are sometimes very simple like that. Leave your primary menu drive A: I haven’t done a ton of research but everything I’ve read said thats the earliest version that works.

WANTED – Gigabyte GA-5AX Motherboard
That is a very well-laid out ATX 5a for its time. Here’s an article about a guy trying to turn a rev 3. Bookmarks Bookmarks Digg del. Use a Matrox video board in it. Next, go into your BIOS setup and under one of the menus you should have one that says “Onboard Floppy Controller” or something like that.
All hail the Great Capacitor Brand Finder. Set that to “disabled”. It is functional, but judging from the look of some of the capacitors, it could probably use a re-cap.
But still a nice board.
This site says the GA-5AX has native K6 Plus support – meaning you can use a regular manufacturer bios and it will work with the chip – http: There is one more ISA slot and one less pci slots on my motherboard. Users browsing this forum: Thread Tools Show Printable Version. You can get it here – http: Yeah but would have been nice to have the AGP 5aax.
Well, I use a 4-floppy Compaticard in a P5-A motherboard. I suspect you might get that under DOS using the Tulin driver however.
The tables writen on my motherboard are different so highest Mhz is Mhz, highest multiplier is 5. There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. The second two drives on the CC are strictly for use with direct-access utilties such as ImageDisk, 22Disk, etc.
