: Where can i find a free Bios upgrade which allows me to use Hard Drives with capacity more than 33.8GB

: Where shud i be looking' for this .. ?

: My main config follows...
: Award Modular BIOS v4.51PG
: 02/26/1999-i440BX-W977TF-2A69KPNJC-00
: B680 2MB BIOS Ver:2.4
: Intel 440BX/ZX rev 3


If no typos in your BIOS ID String try:
http://www.procomp.com.tw/procomp/usa/

If no luck with BIOS update (likely) just use an ATA/66 card - it will support HDDs up to about 128 GB. DMA/33, ATA/100 and ATA/133 will work equally well for most HDDs BUT there is a BIG price difference to pay for NO performance increase.

Good Hunting,
Henry
