About a year ago I purchased a HP Pavilion for $4. I want to get a different bios on it so I can use a different hard drive(has the stupid hdd fetish). The LA is the OEM version of the MX, but the south bridge on the LA is the VT8237, not the VT8235 found on the MX.

The northbridges are both the KT400.
