The BIOS chip is almost certainly a CBM BIOS.  You see the copyright
message, and the part number matches a known CBM BIOS chip...

The board in the picture, though, looks like a generic Taiwanese 8-bit
PC clone board, not Commodore style, not marked Commodore.

I have a Commodore Colt.  Its board is quite different, down to a
different style of power connector (Molex) and a 40-pin XT-IDE
interface.  Not even close to this board.
