The BIOS sign on message:

50-0111-2A5LEG3C- V1.11
Award Modular Bios V4.51PG

AMD-K6 (tm)-2 / 500 CPU

The GemLight site appears to be down...Even the alternale site does not respond.

Any help in getting an upgrade would be appreciated.

Thanks, Charles Neff

Looks like Gemlight went away in 1998.

This seems to indicate you have the latest BIOS. Should be patchable, I think.
Flash your BIOS at your own risk.

There should be DTK equivalent for this board...
PAM-0052V E0

The latest BIOS already supports HDDs up to 128GB:
(2A5LEG3C) DTKPAM0052V.P02.01.12-V1.12
