If it's the version you found here:

Thank you ajzchips for clarifying that to me.
Unfortunately the BIOS doesn't work for me.
I manage to flash my BIOS but when i go to
HDD setting, the program will simply crash.
Anybody have any other suggestion?

power down, disconnect disk, power up, go into bios, set disk to AUTO for autodetect, power down, connect disk, power on and stay out of bios.

Note: if this is a western digital harddisk, it needs to be set for "single drive" mode if it's the only device on the cable.
