Question about Intel Motherboard, 945GC, Core 2 Duo, S775, 800MHz, MATX, Max 2GB DDR2, PCIEX16,2PCI,FENET,Vid,Aud,SATA3Gb (BOXD945GCCR)
I have an HP Pavilion P6055D desktop PC. It has a Foxconn Motherboard. however the model number given is MCP73M01H1 (Napa).
This is not a standard Foxconn model number. however, I suspect that it is (or is close to) a standard Foxconn Mobo.
This motherboard has 4 x SATA drive support connectors, and supports Intel core 2 Quad CPU.
It has NVIDIA nForce 630i Chipset and on-board GeForce 7100 graphics
Research suggests that it is (or is close to) M7PMX-S.
Can anyone confirm that this is the case. If so, can I use the Foxconn Bios on this MOBO to Activate RAID.
The Foxconn MCP73M01H1 motherboard made for HP,
and is one used in the Hp Pavilion P6055D Desktop PC,
IS NOT the same as the Foxconn M7PMX-S!!
The Foxconn MCP73M01H1 uses an AWARD BIOS PROGRAM.
The Foxconn M7PMX-S uses a PHOENIX BIOS PROGRAM.

Oh wow. Why would the lady say such an ignorant thing with such
conviction. This is just nonsense as we all know companies outsource
all the time, precisely Retail driven, close to the end user companies
like HP and Dell. PRODUCING is not the same as contracting out a set of
mobos like the gentlemen correctly suspected of being the same as a
foxconn model. I happen to have an HP with a foxconn mobo (and to the
guru lady, it seems to also have Nvidia's signature, so really, what
you see here, is Nvidia provides tech, Foxconn manpower and efficiency,
and HP sales and marketing and the product sells, but suggesting HP
which cant get to the phone to keep up support go out and actually
manufacture their own mobos is the stuff of laziness).
To the gentleman asking, I have looked at the specs and your analysis seems to be right on. Here's another exact HP product (the one I own, given another HP special foxconn mobo name given the sheer volume of business these folks generate to foxconn. It does seem to get often confusing though and if I were you, and you seem to be quite familiar with hardware and the such, if you were to attempt a flash, make sure to backup first, that is the only harm you will cause to your computer, if you are not cautious even when you're certain. Here's the link to which I mentioned so many times:

I know this is resurrecting an old problem, but I'm going to share my experience. I have a Compaq SR5450F which uses the same motherboard as the mentioned HP Pavilion P6055D.
The motherboard in the HP and Compaq is model MCP73M01, and as you say it is made by Foxconn. The Foxconn M7PMX-S, is model MCP73M05. The main difference between the two models is that one has two PCI Express x1 slots and one PCI, while the other has two PCI and one PCI Express x1 slot, otherwise they are basically identical.
Anyway, to make a long story short, I flashed the Foxconn BIOS to my Compaq. It works perfectly, and includes all the features of the Foxconn motherboard including RAID support.

Here is the REAL deal. Foxconn does manufacture mobos for HP. The Napa board found in my a6514f is VERY similar to the Foxconn board you mentioned. The board is a custom job exclusively for HP, but is based on the aforementioned Foxconn brand board. I won't get into the details of why they do it. More importantly, you are probably looking for drivers. If my experience tells me anything, you probably want to install XP but can only find the Vista and 7 drivers. If this is the case, then go to the nvidia website and download the mobo and graphics drivers based on the CHIPSET. The chipset is BIOS independent, meaning the chipset and OS could not care less about the BIOS. The BIOS only reports whats going on hardware wise to the OS so it can manage it. To put it another way... regardless of who manufactured the mobo, you can go to the CHIPSET mfg's website and get the drivers for ALL supported OS's not just the ones that HP or some other mfg is willing to support.
Go to the support section. The search feature is very intuitive and should lead you to exactly what you are looking for. In your case, searching by chipset. You will find what you seek.
To other people with who are having similar issues with ANY brand of mobo, the same applies. Get your specs. Find out what chipset(s) and video you have, basically all the "built in" stuff. Then, go to the chipset mfg's website and do a search there.
Note: Sometimes a chipset mfg is the same as the mobo mfg. For example, Intel has it's own line of chipsets for the mobos they mfg.

Welcome to fixya support.
HP mother boards are not Foxconn Mother boards they may have the same standard or chipset. HP is manufactures motherboard exclusively for their HP/Compaq brand,they may use printed circuits of other mother board manufacturer. So you cant update bios received from foxconn. You can download BIOS from HP web site by giving your pc model number.Unauthorised or other then manufacturer bios may cause system malfunctioning or may system become unstable.So solution is if you want bios for HP motherboard download it from their website only.
