Default where to get bios for older mainboards (DFI, EPoX...)

Currently I am looking for bios-files for older mainboards. But often it's a tough job to find versions for them, especially for vendors like DFI, EPoX and so on.

Does anybody have a suggestion where I can find files for these models (or maybe someone have files on his storage):

- Chaintech CT-7NJS Zenith
- DFI Infinity nF4 Ultra-U
- DFI LANPARTY 875P Pro B
- DFI LANPARTY 875P-T
- DFI LANPARTY DK 790FXB-M2RS
- DFI LANPARTY DK 790FXB-M3H5
- DFI LANPARTY DK P45-T2RS Plus
- DFI LANPARTY DK P45-T3RS Plus
- DFI LANPARTY JR GF9400-T2RS
- DFI LANPARTY UT 790FX-M2R
- DFI LANPARTY UT 915P-T
- DFI LANPARTY UT nF3 Ultra-D
- DFI LANPARTY UT NF590 SLI-M2R
- DFI LANPARTY UT NF680i LT SLI-T2R
- EPoX 8RDA6+ Pro
- EPoX 9NDA3J
- FOXCONN BlackOPS (beta-bios)
- Leadtek K7NCR18D Pro II Deluxe Limited
- Shuttle AN50R

For DFI-boards in general I can use this site but it doesn't contain all models by far. For EPoX I couldn't find a good source at all.



I think this is a situation where more people are faced with. So maybe we can collect bios files like in the thread for coldslow/coldbug for gfx. And maybe hwbot can host them?

What do you guys think?

I have contacted DFI see if they still have those files stored somewhere.

What was the old DFI enthusiast site that had all the modified BIOS?

knopflerbruce gave me a hint. He sent me this link. Unfortunately none of the sources behind the link worked but due to his hint I knew what to look for.

After a bit of searching the web I found a working link for Tmod DFI BIOS-CD (seems to be one of the latest versions, 11.2.1): Click!

I tried it with my UT nF590 SLI-M2R - works perfect. Now I have about 10 bios-versions for this board and lots of other DFI-boards are supported. But only AMD-based ones. So still looking for bios for Intel-based DFI-boards. But it's a good start...

Thanks for the hint, knopflerbruce!

I extracted the ISO from your link and I see BIOSes for intel boards as well in there.

That CD was great to have aback in the day.

Wasn't there a site that had all the DFI BIOSes (not dfi-street/diy-street) after DFI took them down?

Perhaps we could host these here?

We need to have them to host them.

DFI replied that they looked up but didn't keep any backup of the old site/BIOS.

It should be possible to do some research, no? I can save any bios I have on my boards.

You have to do your due diligence. The files are out there, you just have to find them.
I have a pretty good elite collection of bios's for most obsolete boards in most all platforms. It took me better than a decade to collect these. I use them as draw to my own site. You can always message me if you're looking for a particular bios. Chances are I have it.
