bios flash needed

Postby virginal » Mon Jun 17, 2002 9:50 am

I need to identify my MObo and find a bios upgrade as it currently will not allow more than a 2 gig HDD.
The only numbers i can find are MB 8500-tvd-a ver1.3

Any help?

It is a Biostar MB-8500TVD but you could have an OEM model. What is your current COMPLETE bios string shown at the bottom of your startup screen?

BIOS Update:

I do not know what this update will allow for the increase of hard drive size. But in any case this motherboard will not be a speed demon in any respect, the max speed is 200MHz.
