NOT the information needed to solve your problem. You should look for a BIOS update on your mainboard maker's web site - if none there you must use an alternative method. If you use the wrong BIOS for your mainboard you will corrupt your BIOS (no Beep, no Boot, NOTHING). You probably need to figure out what mainboard you have; IF SO, just follow the motherboard ID article at:

The fastest, surest, least troublesome method to get large HDD support is to use an ATA/66 expansion card - it will support HDDs up to about 128 GB. You can spend more money for ATA/100 or ATA/133 but you WILL NOT see much perfoarmanc difference unless the sustained data transfer rate of your HDD is much more than 66 MB/sec.
