: : Hi,
: : I need the upgrade for:
: : BIOS Date: 01/12/99
: : BIOS Type: Award Modular BIOS v4.51PG
: : BIOS ID: 01/12/1999-i440LX-DD-2A69JD49C-00
: : BIOS Eval:
: : Chipset: Intel 440EX/LX rev 3
: : Motherboard: P2XLX
: : I need to install a 40GB HD. thanks.
: It appears that your mainboard was made by Diamond Flower International (DFI). Try to find a BIOS update at one of these:

: Read the BIOS Release Notes - if large HDD support (>32 GB) is not mentioned then the "update" will not solve your problem. If you "update" anyway you have nothing to gain and your BIOS to corrupt.

: If no BIOS update just get an ATA/66 expansion card - it will support HDDs up to about 128GB and will be plenty fast since the sustained data transfer rate of your IDE HDD is a lot less than 66 MB/sec.

: Good Luck,
: Henry
