A two-fold question. I've got a t-500 2081-CTO. I am looking to replace the motherboard. I am having trouble determining the correct replacement motherboard. There is no FRU sticker under the memory slots like there should be! Is there an alternate way to determine the boards FRU #?
Now, in looking for replacements, I believe that the one linked below would be correct. However, I cannot find any boards that match the FRU numbers in the hardware manual. The numbers in the manual all begin with "60Y", where the boards I find all have "63Y".
For instance, this seems to be the best match:

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

Most noticeable is the rectangle next to the CPU-socket.
An ATI/AMD mobo looks like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/123334150765
Notice the GPU-chip (with dried paste) next to the CPU socket.
Your eBay link shows an Intel mobo not with a GPU-chip, but with something else there instead.
Considering that T500 is 10 years old by now, and the limited availability of parts, you'll most likely have to decide between GPU versions of whatever is available.
The 63Yxxxx are most likely refurbished FRU numbers (or a later version).
