If the BIOS type can be identified, that will be a great help in knowing to
how access the configuration utility; AMI is pressing delete during memory
count, award is control+alt+F10, and so forth.

<< I hope you've tried the obvious, e.g. <F1> or <DEL> during the POST
sequence to
 enter BIOS setup? The earliest PC/AT's used a setup diskette to do the
setup of
 the CMOS-based parameters. That may prove to be a problem.
 To start out, I'd leave the "turbo" switch alone. However, there's usually a
 Turbo indicator LED that will tell you when you're in TURBO mode. If
there's no
 TURBO button, there's probably a jumper connection available somewhere, and
 these connections are normally located in the lower left region of the board
 (assuming the power and keyboard connections are at the upper right, for
 reference. When you say "not available" do you mean you don't have one, or
 it's not present/supported on the motherboard?
 I'm curious about one thing ... Why is it that you believe it to be operable
 12 MHz? Is the CPU marked as such? Can you tell anything about the support
 chip set? I vaguely remember something about a Morse '286 around here
 someplace. It's possible that there's a manual, but more likely it's a board
 that was hying about. I may not have it anymore, but you never know ...
