    Jetway 866as Ultra & 2200+

    Perhaps if Jetway comes out with a BIOS Flash that addresses it. I know the 867as does not. The 866 is a RAID board if I'm not mistaken & I tried to set up a 2200+ on one the other day. No go. The 266(VIA Chipset) boards & the 830 (SIS Chipset ) boards from Jetway definitely do. Jetway is very good about their BIOS flash updates. However there seems to be some difference in the .13 Micron process to manufacture the 2200+ processors. It took me 3 of the Abit AT7 Max boards to get one that would boot to the 2200+. I did an RMA to Abit and even the one they sent me (That they swear was tested with a 2200+) didn't boot up with it. I would check Jetway's site to see if there is a flash upgrade. By the way I Love the Jetway boards. They are the closest thing to bulletproof I have seen in a motherboard. Used them to build my wifes, daughters, & sisters systems. They are all working flawlessly.

    Best of luck to you!
