Personal AMI WinBIOS Dump Won't Run.

Post by iwasaperson »

So I dumped the BIOS from my Deep Green motherboard in hopes of being able to run the same version on PCem, but it just sits at a black screen when I replaced the existing WinBIOS (older version).

I have previously dumped the BIOS from my Pentium rig and ran it successfully with PCem (replacing the 430VX one). Is there an incompatibility that I am not realizing here?

I can upload the dump, but I'm not sure if it's allowed on here. The date on my dump is 07/25/94 whereas the preexisting dump is 12/15/93.

The PCem I tried was the latest from the repo compiled on Debian with the new GUI. I also tried the Windows version (V12) on WINE with the same results.

Hello,

you have to make sure that PCem support your motherboard chipset ("soundbridge / northbridge"). It's not just a BIOS matter.

Thats' true. It also doesn't matter what date of AMIBIOS it is either, it's all about the motherboard itself more than that. My 10/10/94 WinBIOS '96 board doesn't work in PCem either due to a lack of umc88881 emulation

Deep Green is a brand? :roll: Never heard of it
What model is it?

FWIW my motherboard in question's a M919 (Related to that one). They're best known for the fake on-board cache, low prices (USD$60-80 MSRP 95-96) and the bs branding
