I just bought an 80GB Maxtor Drive, which is not detected and hangs the system when being searched for in the BIOS.

I am attributing this to a BIOS in need of a flashing :D However, I don't know what upgrade I need. Here are all the stats I could compile.

BIOS ID: 2A6LJAB9C
BIOS DATE: 01/17/00
BIOS SIGNON: 01/17/2000-694X-686A-2A6LJAB9C-00
BIOS TYPE: Award Modular BIOS v4.60PGA
SUPER I/O: VIA 686 rev 21 found at port 7h
CHIPSET: VIA 82C691 rev 130
OEM SINGON: S61 R01-F0 Jan.17.2000 Acer Inc.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated, thanks.

All I see is the Part# and Doc#, 46.35G02.001 and ASP14-9908R1, respectively.

I tried flashing version R1.10 and it told me I had the wrong BIOS for my MB....but I definitely have the AX64, it's the same as the picture above. Any ideas?

Its possible its using a SyncMax BIOS or an Acer BIOS...so it should be just warning you about potential problems if you do flash.
You should be able to continue.

But do so at your own risk.

It just flashes the error message at the bottom of the screen, no way to continue..

EDIT: Maybe its the flash utility I'm using? I'm using the one that came with the .bin, should I try AWDFLASH or something?
