Motherboard in subject autodetect function on 40GB Maxtor locks the PC.

I have read FAQ, and from there I came to conclusion that it is 8GB limit in BIOS, but I don't know how to patch it :-(

Any help is appreciated.

BIOS data follows:

09/22/97-82430HX-PI55T2P4C-00
Award Modular BIOS v4.51PG
#401A0-0205

Thanks in advance

See AJZ, Asus motherboard users always read the FAQ. :D

Latest BIOS 0207__02 is patchable, but I can't get my FTP working. Hopefully another associate can patch & upload it to you.

stemd,

I have patched the 0207-2 BIOS for the Asus T2P4 for full 128GB support.
It has been tested and works with IDE drives upto 120GB.

Thank you on fast reaction, but as it happens, I made boot floppy with

patched BIOS and aflash.exe, only to see that floppy drive isn't functional

:-(

(maybe he is mad because nobody cared to use it for a while :-))

Thx anyway, I will report when succesfull patch occurs.

Assuming you're using Win9X, just boot to Safe Mode Command Prompt, and flash from your old HDD.
