: Here is my situation, I am trying to install a 40GB HDD on my computer, but the current BIOS does not support this HDD. BIOS signon (ID) is 05/07/1999-i440BX-ITE867-2A69KV3IC-00. If any one have any idea where to obtain an update for my current BIOs, please reply to this Forum. Thanks.

If you can not find a BIOS update to support 40GB HDD you can use an ATA/66 expansion card; it will support HDDs up to about 128GB. You should look for your BIOS update on the mainboard maker's web site. I think VTECH (PC Partner) made your mainboard but you should follow the motherboard ID article and verify the maker and identify the model number:

If VTECH/PC Partner was your mainboard maker yuou may find an update at:

Read the BIOS Release Notes to see if large HDD support was added. There is NOTHING to gain and your BIOS to lose if you use a BIOS "update" that does not provide large HDD support.

Good Luck,
