I'm currently working on a rather old PC with an AI5TV
motherboard, no further information unfortunately.
I've run the bios wizzard and the output is as follows:

Program: Unicore BIOS Wizard Version 1.5
Program: Unicore Chip Detect v0.72 2000.03.10
BIOS Date: 03/03/97
BIOS Type: Award Modular BIOS v4.51PG
BIOS ID: 03/03/97-i430VX,W83877F-2A59GM29C-00
BIOS Eval: AI5TV-V7-0304
Chipset: Intel Triton 430VX rev 2
Superio: Winbond 877F (use 87h) rev 0 found at port 3F0h

Can anyone point me to a site where I can get updates for this BIOS ? I want to install a bigger harddisk but since I don't have any manuals for this PC I don't know what the maximum size is that this BIOS supports. Before I go out and buy myself a useless big disk, I want to make sure I can use it. I've searched around the web and found a program that supposedly should be
able to upgrade my BIOS but it just hangs. Nothing happens and I have to hard reset the box. lucky for me nothing happened to the BIOS so it is still working as I'm typing this message on it right now ;^)
