It appears you have an MSI MS-6119 motherboard with BIOS version 2.7 which has an "Update date" of June 14 1999.

It is probably the "MSI Standard" version of the motherboard rather than the "CPU Plug and Play" version. There are different BIOS's for the different versions of the motherboard.

The newest BIOS version for this motherboard is s2.a which recognizes HDs up to 128 GB.
