A Jetway board with an Award BIOS should have no trouble until it passes 70Gb, although the rom could be damaged. Check your jumper settings again and make sure all the cable are tight and orientated correctly, personally I would short the CMOS and start from scratch, or at least BIOS setup defaults to clear any old info. If this still fails and a BIOS flash seems likely to work, do it! read the instructions which are straight forward and follow them precisely, you wont have a problem. Of all chips to flash Award are the most reliable and whilst a power cut or someone chucking a gallon of water over your PC while its flashing you will do it without problem.
If you are unsure I will give you a 1, 2, 3 on how to proceed.
Most failed BIOS upgrades are recoverable, he who dares and all that..........!
