If this is the wrong area to post please let me know. This is some info on my chipset and my bios. I would like to update my bios in order to be able to recognize larger harddrives(I use a 160 gig Maxtor). I have tried to go through the Shuttle people and they can't(or won't help) supply any info. I have tried Unicore for an upgrade but what they supplied only blew my system to pieces I had to go to the people the board was purchased from and fortunately they had a bios chip from the same kind of board. We did a hotswap and got my system back up and reflashed with the original bios. Is there a bios upgrade for this board and has anyone been successful in upgrading this particular configuration. Thanks for hearing me out.
