i plug a new 40GB hdd into my PC, BIOS cannot detect it, but win2k can
what must i do?
Check the manufacturer's web site for a bios upgrade. Chance's are this problem has been sorted.
the following is my BIOS info:
BIOS Date: 01/25/99
BIOS Type: Award Modular BIOS v4.51PG
BIOS ID: 01/25/1999-691-586B-W877-2A6LFJ1CC
BIOS Eval: V.791BS_2 B04 01-25-1999
Chipset: VIA 82C691 rev 1
Superio: Winbond 877AF (use 87h) rev 0 found at port 3F0h
i am unable to find the BIOS update, can you pls help me?
CAN YOU GIVE ME THE EXACT MODEL OF THE MOBO PLEASE AND I WILL SEE WHAT I CAN FIND FOR YOU
(DISCLAIMER THIS KEYBOARD IS SHAGGED)
That doesn't make sense, if the BIOS cant seee it then nothing else can. How can the BIOS report it to windows if it cant see it.

Ah, but you are wrong. For example Linux will entirely not give a crap about what BIOS says about hardware (for example hdd:s). It will detect them itself. I think W2k and XP can do the same thing.
thinking about that
i could really do with the mobo model.
