I thought this might not work with my current BIOS but I'm having a heck of time finding a update to it.

I'm running off a Dell XPS M200s
Basically, a P200MMX running on a Intel mobo - TE430VX

Version: 1.00.06.CY0J

Can anyone help?

Is there a BIOS ID string ? like in this picture, the long string of numbers at the bottom:
Tested patched BIOSes. Untested patched BIOSes.

1.00.06.CY0J is Intel's BIOS ID. It's Intel Advanced/TE (TE430VX) ATX board (OEM only).

Gateway is using this board too.
Th TE430VX provides two independent bus-mastering PCI IDE interfaces that support PIO Mode 3 and Mode 4 devices. The system BIOS supports Logical Block Addressing (LBA) and Extended Cylinder Sector Head (ECHS) translation modes as well as ATAPI devices on both IDE interfaces. The system BIOS automatically detects IDE device transfer rate and translation mode. IDE hard drives up to 8.4 gig in size can be used on this motherboard and be automatically detected regardless of the BIOS version.
So I guess that's a no.

Do not assume anything
