: Hi,
: I need the upgrade for:
: BIOS Date: 01/12/99
: BIOS Type: Award Modular BIOS v4.51PG
: BIOS ID: 01/12/1999-i440LX-DD-2A69JD49C-00
: BIOS Eval:
: Chipset: Intel 440EX/LX rev 3
: Motherboard: P2XLX
: I need to install a 40GB HD. thanks.

It appears that your mainboard was made by Diamond Flower International (DFI). Try to find a BIOS update at one of these:

Read the BIOS Release Notes - if large HDD support (>32 GB) is not mentioned then the "update" will not solve your problem. If you "update" anyway you have nothing to gain and your BIOS to corrupt.

If no BIOS update just get an ATA/66 expansion card - it will support HDDs up to about 128GB and will be plenty fast since the sustained data transfer rate of your IDE HDD is a lot less than 66 MB/sec.

Good Luck,
