I have this very old motherboard and I am working on it for a project. The 120 GB IDE HDD I'm trying to put in it isn't recognized and dies.

This is a ChainTech 6ESA2-E100N (label on the BIOS chip).

I tried to get the patched BIOS linked in the topic below but the link seems long dead and is not on archive.org.

Is there a chance someone can help me out?

There has been this other topic on it years and years ago but the link to the patched BIOS is dead.

If by chance someone can do that, wow thanks.
