: : Hi All,

: : The BIOS id (Award bios) string for my motherboard goes something like this :
: :
: : i440LX-ALi513-2A69JPNBC-00

: : I figured out that the motherboard manufacturer is Procomp and the motherboard no. is B684. However, the latest BIOS available from www.procomp.com.tw and www.kobian.com (my motherboard has KOB LX-AT marked on it) are dated 01/09/99 and 04/12/99 resp.

: : As per this info, the bios on my motherboard is the latest one, i.e. dated 04/12/99 but it doesn't support 40 GB HDD (I tried installing one).

: : Can anything be done ? Is there some place from where I can get an upgrade that supports 40 GB?

: : thanks

: You can get an (expensive) custom BIOS from Unicore to support large HDDs:
: http://www.unicore.com

: OR you can forget the BIOS update and get an ATA/66 card; it will support HDDs to about 128 GB. The ATA/66 card is my preference.

: Henry
