To my knowledge there are different variations of the E-Matrix 1230. It may still have "SCSI II ready" printed on the board but the SCSI controller is absent and i bet SCSI support is also absent in the firmware. I have the same model from and it does only support a max of 32mb ram. The only difference is Vesalia include a 50mhz CPU instead of a 40mhz one.

There is an E-Matrix 1230 board (M-Tec version) that comes with a SCSI controller and FPU as standard... this is the one that supports upto 128mb of ram. The DCE Viper 1230 MK-V is identical to the M-Tec E-Matrix 1230 but is not the same as the Amigakit/Vesalia versions.

Here's the one i got from

and here are the original full fat versions (before being crippled):

I can spot a few differences already...
