Looks like the new BIOS is 2Mbit. If you have a 1Mbit chip, you'll need to: a) order a new pre-flashed chip, or b) patch and reflash your current BIOS.
Flash your BIOS at your own risk.

Where can I find a patch for my Bios. I will install the 2 Mbit Version an then the flash program say it ist the wrong size for my Bios. I need a patch which permits to install an 2Mbit Bios or a Patch which support 80 GB HDDs in the 1Mbit Version.

OR Where can I buy a pre-flashed Bios?

I have some problems with upload (uploading files & sending big e-mails), so wait until someone else patches it.
