I think your mainboard was made by Soyo. Inspect the board and find the model number and hardware revision - both should be on the board - model might be between a pair of PCI or ISA slots or even on a sticker on a slot. The revision may be painted on or etched into the board - often in a rear corner. Then go to Soyo's web site and search for your BIOS update. The latest one usually has all of the improvements made from the beginning - BUT READ THE RELEASE NOTES to be certain that an update will solve your problem. If there are several updates posted for your mainboard - get all of them - you may need to go back if the update doesn't work out. NO POINT updating BIOS if it won't fix your problem.

Soyo is at:

If you can't find a BIOS fix for your problem then an ATA/66 or ATA/100 card would recognize up to 128GB HDDs.

Good Hunting,
Henry
