990402s.rom is the latest Bios for Rev 1.2 and Rev 1.4 M760V

Your Bios-ID should have been changed a little compared to the older Bios and a "Release 19990402S" or similar should appear just below the AMI Logo

Chances are good this Bios supports at least up to 64GB but you'll never know with Pcchips ....

If it does not work, enter HDD parameters manually.

In early 1998, most PCCHIPS AMIBIOSes had proper support for large HDDs. (i.e. my old TXPRO supports 80GB HDDs with the 4/1998 AMI BIOS).
