Hi people!

I've used this motherboard during 10 years whitout problem. There have been 2 drives plugged during years: 7GB drive and 80 GB drive, booting from the 7GB drive because the 80GB drive has never been recognised by this motherboard. Now, the 7GB drive is crashed so I need the motherboard recognise the 80GB drive to boot from there.

I write the information:

BIOS Type: Award

Can you give me the appropiated files to flash the bios in order it to recognise the 80GB drive?

Thanks in advance.
