: : I need some info. I recently bought a 40gig hard drive however my intel 440 bx\zx pentium 2\3 board with an award 4.51 pg bios (2A69kL7A) does not recognise it. I've used my office computer to partition the hard drive into smaller blocks, but have yet to test at home, will my bios now recognise the hard disk?

: B) Buy an IDE-Cotroller with own BIOS.
: C) Maybe unicore offers an BIOS-Update (
