Hello

I bought a 80gb maxtor hd, but my bios doesnt recognize it
I contacted the epox motherboard site already but they said
they didnt upgrade this sort of motherboard bios anymore :(
(biosupdate support only the maximum capacity of 65 gb)
What can i do?

- manually change in bios value of hd?
How can i do that?

or

Something else?

Greetings

Ok

it works now!
I had installed the hd in a mobile rack but then the bios didnt recognized it
Why? :?:

So i removed the rack and the bios recognized my new hd.

Mobile racks, until very recently, were not capable of speeds beyond DMA33. Been there, done that, bought racks that said UDMA66/100 capable on the box, problem solved (and a happy customer).
