I have an old 8500TAC ver.6 motherboard with Pentium/100 CPU and I tried to upgrade the BIOS according to the procedure found in the manual and at http://pantexcom.com/svcpage/hardware/8500tac.htm
I used the new bios file I02BUA29.ROM Juy-20-1998 provided by the manufacturer (http://www.biostar.com.tw/support/8500tac.htm)
The result after turning on the system while pressing & keys was: 1 beep, reading from disk, 4 beeps (timer not operational?), pause, 1 beep, reading from disk, 4 beeps, pause, ...
Please advise. Do I have to upgrade the motherboard itself?
