I have a relatively new Jetway J-530Bf based Pc on which I want to run a large IDE drive (20G+)

Problem is the manual suggests the 8.4Gb limit applies; Flashing the BIOS looks scary according to the pundits; what do I do?

The BIOS version is V530bf/530bn E01 01-03-2000

IS IT in FACT the case that this board won't support a large drive; should I go ahead anyway; I've heard of utilities that allow this problem to be 'patched' How do these affect transfer rates (the machine's used for video editing)

Any advice and or directions to appropriate information sites will be appreciated..
