In Reply to: ATC 6220 BIOS UPGRADE posted by Jack on January 11, 2002 at 03:09:54:

: Recently I Upgraded my Mother Board BIOS in order to detect the 40GB HDD. I have two HDDS. Both of them are 40 gigs. But both of them did not get detected.

: The MOBO is an ATC 6220: I downloaded the BIOS patch 6220117A.BIN. I was able to Flash with this version of the patch. But still, the mobo could not detect the HDDs.

: And my BIOS info after Flashing is:
: BIOS Date: 05/25/99
: BIOS Type: Award Modular BIOS v4.51PG
: BIOS ID: 05/25/1999-i440BX-W977TF-ATC-6220C-VH
: BIOS Eval: ATC-6220 VER:1.1 07 WB
: Chipset: Intel 440BX/ZX rev 3
: Superio: Winbond 977TF rev 0 found at port 3F0h

: There are other two pathces which are of size 128KB. They could not flash my BIOS. I get a File Size mismatch, when i try to flash with the two patches.

: Please let me know if anybody has got a solution for this.

The available BIOS updates WILL NOT solve your problem, as you found. Luckily you probably did not misflash your BIOS.

You can easily get support for HDDs up to 128 GB with an ATA/66 card. The ATA/66 card will be plenty fast, too until someone makes HDDs with sustained data transfer rate a lot higher than 66 MB/sec. Burst data transfer rate lasts for about 20 milliseconds - after that - sustained rate. Check your HDD specs.

Hope this helps,
