I have an older machine with an Intel Advanced/EV Motherboard and 1.00.04.CB0 AMI Bios. I'm trying to find out if I need to upgrade the bios to 1.00.06.CB0 to support adding a 40GB hard drive. Can anyone help?

This bios was done about 8/2000 and I woudl suspect that it does not support 40 gig or greater. SO, use 32 gig, EIDE addit card, or drive overlay sw.

Flash your BIOS at your own risk.

Intel has got a table for that now: ... d_size.htm
