I have newer BIOS for 6ESA2 board: "08/27/1999-i440EX-8671-2A69JC39C-00" I can patch it for HDDs over 32GB, but it will hang on the configuration table when using HDD over 64GB. My program for patching the 64GB bug is still not finished - try asking Jan.

Rainbow,

Can you send me that newer 6esa2 BIOS? I will see what I can do with it.
Being from 08/99 it may already have 128GB support. :?:

My AWD32GB shows that there's no support over 32GB. I uploaded it at http://www.wimsbios.com/~rainbow/Chaint ... SA2827.EXE

That is the original, non-patched version. The 32GB-patched version will not hang at autodetect but at configuration table.
