I have GB MA770T-UD3 with Award 6.0 Rev1 BIOS. Some people got flash update
for that crippled BIOS, but it is not available anymore.
Its AMD chipset supports AMD Phenom with 4 cores. BTW, I use SATA for disks
and it works perfectly. DVD is on IDE channel and UIDE from 05.03.2015 works
also. If I get combo diskette unit I could use two diskettes.
Both PS/2 ports work also.

I tested one MB with updated BIOS. Serial mouse works and two IDE ports are
supported. There is still only one diskette supported, but all formats
work, even 5 inch formatted as 1.44 MB.
