Hello.
I just got a new HDD (Seagate 60GB) and my BIOS doesn't recognize it.
Bios serial is 03/23/1999-Aladdin5-2A5KKJ1EC-00.
I'm using Award Bios v 4.51PG An energy star ally.
Chipset: Ali M1542/M1543, Aladdin-V chipset.
Using AMD-K6-2/550 CPU
Motherboard is v. 542B/542BS (C02.1 3-23-1999) manufactured by Jetway
I'd really appreciate it if could help me solve this problem.

Many thanks
Colin.
