BIOS Date: 06/21/99
BIOS Type: Award Modular BIOS v4.51PG
BIOS ID: 06/21/1999-SiS-620-2A6INPN9C-00
OEM Sign-On: BS61M BIOS Ver:1.0
Chipset: SiS 620 rev 2

I have tried both the standard and alternate jumper settings along with the Western Digital diagnostics. I can write zeros to the drive using DLGDiag.exe, but the dlgsetup11_dos.zip utilities do not see the drive. I have changed the CMOS settings according to the dlgsetup11_dos.zip instructions. I am having trouble finding a newer BIOS version. Is there a newer version, and will it solve the problem?

We have a patched BIOS that'll support HDDs upto 128GB here:

Look for Procomp BS61M
