It is nice to hear that this type of legacy products are still out there.
About this problem, it does seem to be a BIOS chipset issue.
You may want to try BIOS recovery.

thanks for this bios
but same result ,failed to flash image intel management with error code
I have to order a new eeprom ,finally the same model that was installed on the motherboard at the origin
I will inform you that this will be done
I also try to flash the eeprom with an eeprom flasher but I have the code post that stays on 00
If you have an idea i willingly
thank you in advance
i find post into intel communities
that same problem for me
When removing the BIOS jumper and powering the machine on (with the CD in the drive containing the BIOS ISO) the post code cycles ...
26 - for 6 seconds
31 - for 6 seconds
33 - for 2 seconds
Then it cycles again but very fast so i can not see all the POST codes and goes to 26 / 31 /33 again ... like a loop ...
With the BIOS jumper in place (normal)... and Back to Bios button switched off ... it still only goes to 4F.
after post code 4f motherboard reboot and reboot ....
In some cases (alas not all), the 0x00 POST issue can be alleviated using a different power supply (PSU). This was not a really well understood issue. Why a board can work with a PSU for some amount of time and then suddenly stop is mysterious enough. Changing the PSU and it then working is even more mysterious (and makes it difficult to debug). Then, bizarrely, once it has booted successfully, switching back to the original PSU sometimes then works as well. Bottom line, if you have access to one, I suggest you try using a different PSU. It may work; it may not.
That said, seeing POST code 0x31 is a concerning thing. It means that a crisis recovery is occurring and that the culprit is likely a corrupted or failing flash component (it is NOT an EEPROM).
Replacing the flash component is problematic. You are going to have to unsolder the existing component and then resolder the replacement component. Over the years, while debugging issues, I have had this done for me (I don't trust myself) many, many (many!) times. Even with the best technicians that Intel had doing so, there was still an appreciable error rate. Worst-case, the board is damaged.
Getting an image onto a new flash component is problematic as well. For security reasons, Intel does not release BIOS images in BIN form. You either need to use the image on your existing flash - which may already be corrupted - or you use the image from another working board's flash. If you are lucky, the former works. If not, well, the problem is that your board will then have the identity (serial number, etc.) of the copied board, as well as its MAC Address. While the MAC Address issue can be addressed, the tool needed to change the board's identity is closely guarded by Intel and you cannot get it. I don't know about anyone else, but I certainly wouldn't let someone copy my flash image (and then be duplicating a significant portion of my system's identity on the internet)...
My flash sequence resulted in 68 and then failed
Falsh image intel management
With an error code
In my case I have to use another psu
The result gives nothing
What is most strange is that I extracted the original bios
And compare it with the same available in download
And the code is totally different to know "3878"
2.1m for the bios extract and 3.5m for the bios
I used to make the extraction of chip eeprom on motherboards I repaired
But I never have this concern to flash live without going through the tools of the manufacturer
In short I have to order a model of eeprom which is soldered on the card
In any case I do not understand why when I try to flash with a usb key
Some bios arrives at the stage of the flash and other not typically the 5924 no worries the 5936 the 3878 does not pass
As you say it will be necessary to recover a functional bios of a motherboard and test it to see
Thank you for your answer
Are you seeing this error code while attempting to update the BIOS using the Recovery Method (i.e. with the yellow jumper removed from the BIOS Configuration header) or just when using the normal (Windows/DOS/F7) installation method? You should be doing the former, not the latter.
Note the following regarding the proper execution of the Recovery Method:
- Format a USB 2.0 flash disk using the FAT32 file system. Do so even if you believe that it has been done before. Do not use USB 3.0 flash sticks. It *must* be formatted using the FAT32 file system and not any clones (specifically, never use the Linux ExFAT file system).
- Put the .BIO file onto the USB flash disk - and nothing else.
- Completely power off the system.
- Plug the USB flash disk into a (black) USB 2.0 port on the back panel of the board. Do not use (blue) USB 3.0 ports, do not use (yellow) USB charging ports and, especially, do not use front panel USB ports or ports on any kind of USB hub.
- Remove the yellow jumper from the BIOS Configuration header.
- Power on the system.
- The Recovery process should complete on its own. If you don't see its progress being displayed on the primary monitor, it likely isn't working - but, in this case, do not power off the system for at least 15 minutes (just in case it is working without displaying).
- When the Recovery process completes, you will be told so onscreen. Power off if this is the case.
- Restore the jumper to the 1-2 pins of the BIOS Configuration header.
- Power on.
- If you get to the splash screen, use F2 to enter BIOS setup and then use F9 to restore the configuration to factory defaults. Exit BIOS Setup with a save of the current configuration (the factory defaults).
To your other questions/statements:
- The .BIO file consists of a number of "capsules", each of which is separately encrypted and compressed. In no way will the size of the .BIO files ever coincide with the size of the image stored in the flash component (or the areas within the flash component that are actually used).
- I repeat, there is no EEPROM on the board that you need be concerned with; the firmware (BIOS, ME, etc.) and its data is all stored in a flash component. The flash tools you see used on other manufacturer's boards will not work properly on Intel boards. Attempting to use them, if anything, will do more damage than fix. In addition, these tools require the firmware to be in a binary format file - which Intel does not release.
Let me know how successful you are following this process...
Yes I followed the method by removing the yellow jumper and putting the usb key at the place where it is planned
And the post code "68" is visible on the motherboard and the error message appears on the display at the end of the flash
My key has the file .bio and is well formatter in fat32
So 2 things either the bios contained in the eeprom is corrupted
Either the eeprom that I have replaced does not work properly with this motherboard
My last solution would be to have a bios dumper from another motherboard running
Ps: I have to order an eeprom of the same model that installed at the origin
I'll keep you informed
Thank you for your answer
