Thanks for everyone thats still seeding! Just letting you know the archives still alive!
I'm still seeding on the server
Also some updates on the FTP contents:
1) There's now a new folder called "/Motherboard Specs (website)/". It contains the abit website pages for most (all?) of their boards in PDF format. Useful for looking up the basic specs of a board "from the manufacturer". The layout in the PDFs is a bit messed up, but it's better than nothing.
2) All E0 BIOS updates (S775 45nm Core2-based CPUs) that I could find have been added.
They're in "/pub/download/bios/! E0 Stepping BIOS Updates/" and also in the regular BIOS update folders for the specific boards.
The E0 updates are for the following boards:
- AW9D and AW9D-MAX (same BIOS)
- IN9 SLI (FP-IN9 SLI)
- IP35 and IP35-E (same BIOS)
- IP35 Pro
- IP35 Pro XE
The E0 updates actually came in pretty handy, as one of my own Abit boards (IP35P) had REALLY weird problems with a Pentium Dualcore E6300 2.8GHz, which is a late 45nm Wolfdale CPU. The BIOS constantly read the temperature as being near or above 100°C (212°F), so all fans were running full blast cause the FanEQ thought the CPU was frying. It also failed to boot/POST half the time, which somehow made it "forget" all the settings except the time/date.
All those problems disappeared after I flashed the E0 BIOS update (and my mom's happy with her "new" computer)
Seriously, give this man a medal.
This is awesome. Somewhat surprised that it ended up being a whopping 20GB.
I'm still running an abit board myself. I remember going to their website for a BIOS update late February and seeing the shutdown notice. I think the FTP stayed up until the middle of March if I recall correctly.
If you're looking for people to help out with this, you can try hitting up Hexus. They've still got an abit section there.
On another note, there seems to be an abit.ws site that's still floating around. Anyone know anything about that?
Anyway, going see if I can get some free space to help preserve this.
That Abit.ws site is up but not totally functional. There are still some stuff on it though.
Also good find SaltyFish
Still seeding the torrent, btw.
Torrent is up domain name changed ill fix it after yard work. Gotta fix the flooding issue on the west wall laying asphalt on the walk way. Fucking walkin on the walk way mr ballon hands.
From phone. Your addicted when...mobile browser home page is also TPU.
Still seeding but it seems like anyone whom wanted to grab a copy has done so already.
Does anybody have a copy of the website?
i couldnt get a copy of that.
Still seeding, about a week ago I still had a peer leeching the file from me.
I finally managed to get 20GB free space for it. Anyone uploading in the last few days was probably uploading it to me.
I've found another unofficial abit support forum, http://www.abithelp.com . It'd be nice to tell them about this, but I can't seem to get past their registration.
Well, if you are from Belgium or the USA it is likely you have been leeching from me.
Try contacting the Board Administrator here --> abithelp.com Board Administrator
I know the admin there, a friend of mine actually. I'll point him here if you want to....
OMG an up-to-date bios for my IP35? Seems like a miracle: on official website it's never appeared...
LET'S TEST IT!
FYI, I am still having the archive in my torrent list.
Still seeding, FTP still running
If there are any problems with it, let me know (preferably via PM, so I get a notification email)
Transfer speed limit is now 500KByte/s, or at least it's supposed to be. Some people on specific ISPs (UPC/Unitymedia for example) will probably never get that much due to crappy peering to OVH.
Shouldn't be that much of a problem though, because the majority of "important" files (manuals, BIOSes etc) are 5MB or less. Pretty much the only exception are the high-res promo photos and the ancient driver packages.
The speed limit is mainly in place to prevent people from trying to download everything via FTP (blocking it for others), which quite a few idiots have tried in the past. Nullroute/IPFilter taught them what I think of that
I'm downloading the torrent now and will leave it seeding until well after I reach a 1.0 ratio.
been there, done that
Still seeding for whomever needs this.
Me too still seeding
Just found this: http://abit.ws/page/en/index.php
Several links are broken but you can still access the motherboard pages.
775 and AM2 motherdoards: http://abit.ws/page/en/motherboard/motherboard.php
Legacy motherboards: http://abit.ws/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_archives.php
Driver download pages are active BUT the files are just filler 1KB ones. The download path corresponds with the actual path in the Abit.rar folders (checked with the IC7-G)
Intel chipset URL: http://abit.ws/file.abit.com.tw/pub/download/driver2/intel_inf/inf_v9001007.zip
Separate names with a comma.
