I would guess by looking at the eeprom chips. The number on the chip
will give its size and if it is the case that the 512K boards have two
chips, you can tell this sort of board by it having two eeprom chips

LSI wants the 'Mylex' name to go away, but it refuses to. People really
prefer the (old) Mylex RAID controllers over LSI's (new) controllers.
What you might *try* is to pop off the eeprom off the board (assuming
it is not soldered on and is in a socket) and use an eeprom programmer
to burn a proper (older) 256K BIOS into it. I don't know if LSI will
sell you a replacement eeprom, which is yet another option.
