    Haven't come across this before.

    Is it likely to cause any issues with loading model/mk specific Panasonic apps or BIOS updates?

    Or a formerly passworded model that has been force-flashed with a botched BIOS.

    Well it looks to be a MK4. As Shawn said motherboard replacement...I have seen this a few times in the past on a CF-30

    Thanks for the replies. It is a mk4.

    Yes it appears the motherboard has been replaced. The question is though - would it be likely to cause any issues with loading model/mk specific Panasonic apps or BIOS updates etc.

    Do some software installs look for the model number or can it tell the mk/model from the motherboard itself? I ask as I occasionally see messages such as "Not for this computer" when installing.
