DC7700 or dc7700p?

Have several system boards that I am trying to identify as either dc7700 or dc7700p (Pro) boards.
Stickers on the boards state to replace with FRU 404-674-001 which I believe are non-pro boards, but when I look in BIOS there is no Product name and it appears the BIOS on most have been flashed with version 3.04 Bios, which is for the Pro board.
Wondering if there is any other way to determine visually or any other way which each board actually is?

In order to meet the specialists for your type of computer (no "workstations", just business desktops) you may ask in the forum for desktops:
"business PCs - Deskpro, EVO, professional"
