Ladies and gentlemen!

Because my current harddrive shows signs of degradation, I need to switch to a new one. The one I want to upgrade to is a Maxtor 40 GB HD. Does anybody in this forum know whether my BIOS (Award Modular 4.51 PC / ID: 03/08/1999-SiS-5600-8661-2A6ILC39C-00) is able to handle an HD of that size, and, if not, whether there's a downloadable and flashable upgrade to this BIOS which can? Searches on the net have been largely inconclusive. According to the info I could gather, Chaintech should be the maker of my board, yet they don't provide anything which might fit their own model numbers (if it's them who actually made it).

Any help appreciated.
