: Need newer Bios upgrade for this Luckytech or SYE mainboard
: It is a SS7, AT type, it won't recognize my 40gig Hdd
: Luckytech's & SYE's sites are DEAD. I have Rev.A I
: understand Rev.D was available. Anyone have it. Don


I don't think your chance of finding a BIOS update for your mainboard is very good or that it will solve your problem if you do find it. I have a reference that suggests that EFA may have either made or distributed Lucky Tech mainboards. You can find them at:

You will need your mainboard model number and hardware revision number and you must be certain that the BIOS is for your mainboard and not a different mainboard with a similar model number. You may need to download a manual to use for inspecting your mainboard. If you use the wrong update you will corrupt your BIOS (it is a hassle to fix that, but it can be done). Read the BIOS release Notes before you decide to update your BIOS - no point updating if it does not solve your problem.

You might consider an ATA/66 or ATA/100 card that will recognize HDs up to 128GB.

Good Hunting,
Henry
