: Can tell me someone if I need to Upgrade my BIOS to install a new hard disk of 20 Gb?

: My BIOS is:

: Award Modular BIOS v4.51 PG W6119MJ v2.1 081498
: 06/16/1998-I440BX-W977-2A69KM4AC-00

: Thanks


Your BIOS was issued at a time when most BIOS supported 8.4GB maximum. My best guess is that your BIOS supports up to 8.4GB max. Suggest that you try to find BIOS update and (very important) the BIOS Release Notes. The release notes will tell you IF BIOS was updated to support larger HDDs (usually up to about 32GB).

Suggest that you connect your HDD to your PC and see if your BIOS will identify (autodetect) it correctly - if it does that is all you need. If it doesn;t recognize all of the HDD or fails to identify any of it then your BIOS doesn't support large HDDs.

Hope this helps,
Henry
