: Help, I need an AMIBIOS upgrade for my 486, it can only read 500Mb of my 3Gb. Please reply by e-mail.

You need to know your mainboard maker, model number and revision number then select ONLY the update that matches your mainboard. Some of this information may be in the manual, if you have one. You probably have a tough job ahead.

Learn about mainboard identification at:

A chipset/mainboard program may help. Try:

At this late date BIOS updates may not be available or you may have a BIOS that is not flash upgradeable.

Both Data Technology Corporation (DTC) and SIIG offer IDE interface that have their own BIOS and will support HDDs > 0.5MB; to at least 8.4MB. - About the same cost as new BIOS, if new BIOS were available. There are other options.

Post again if you still need help - give us all of the information you can find about your mainboard.

Good Hunting,
Henry
