Looking for a BIOS update and or patch

Postby Dainko » Sun Sep 01, 2002 10:54 pm

Original problem: I have a WD 60gig HHD that I am trying to install on a Pentium 200 w/MMX, but computer and OS will not recognize it.
MB is Micronics (which seems to have been bought out) Twister AT-03.
BIOS is Award v. 4.51PG.
Bios ID i430TX-2A59Imd9c-00
OS: Win98 (not SE)

I read a post (different website) that there is a patch for the Award BIOS v. 4.51PG that will allow larger HDD. If anyone has info on either BIOS update or patch (if exist), would greatly appreciate it. :D

Allow larger HDD than 8 gig?

If not you're pretty much stuck with the BIOS only recognizing upto 8 gigs.

Sorry, a little misinformation

The BIOS would recognize the WD60 GB drive, but only 32 GB. The OS wouldn't acknowledge it's existance. I guess I was pretty tired when I originally typed up the post. Sorry Stonecutter for the misinformation.
