The last available BIOS version for the Ultra 24 is *apparently* v. 1.56.
It is included in the Tools and Drivers 1.6.0 DVD along with the usual utilities.

It's an utter mess.

Among other things, it actually reports the machine as being 'portable':
groucho at devuan:~$ inxi -b

Ahhh ....

With this 1.56 BIOS I have a very annoying anbeit not permanent shutdown problem but I 
cannot recall if the previously installed version had the same problem, hence my question for 
your installed version.  

The BIOS updated to 1.56 without any issues but reporting it as a portable is uncanny and 
makes me think it ththat maybe some DVDs came out with the a half cooked file.

If you could recover the picture it would  be grand.

Thanks in advance.
