Firmware update: Abit KT7 series (A/E/RAID)

Rob sent us the tip that Abit has released a new BIOS for the complete series of KT7 motherboard, which are: KT7E, KT7A, KT7A-RAID, KT7 and KT7-RAID. This version was released on May 11, but it was still missing from our junk tracker. Below is a list of improvements:

  • Adds three new options to enhance the system compatibility
    • Delay Transaction
    • PCI master read
    • PCI master timeout

    Sets above options to Disabled/0 and may help SB Live 5.1 sound issue. If the system experiences low performance after these settings, enable the”PCI master read caching”.

  • Fixes the Athlon 1.3G(100) wrongfully being recognized as 104×12.5.
  • Adds an option “State after power failure”.
  • Sets all four IDE devices to “AUTO”.
  • Sets the default year to 2001.
