: I have a SCE motherboard model SP-A586B. The bios chip is Award bios v4.51PG
: bios signon: 07/10/1998 aladdin5-2a5kksmac-00
: chipset: alim1541 rev4
: I tried to use the upgrade file from their website SCE USA MAINBOARDS "a586b-a9.bin". Upgrade error message read "The program file's part number does not match with your system". I aborted the upgrade. I want to upgrade my bios so my system will recognize my 30gig hard dive. I could sure use someones help on this one!

Sounds like the BIOS update file does not EXACTLY match your mainboard. Suggest that instead of trying to force an update that may corrupt your BIOS that you use an ATA/66 card - it will support HDDs up to about 128 GB.

Good Luck,
