BIOS update, EIDE card, or overlay software? (FAQ Hard disk recognition)

I have an old Epox EP-BX3 and flashed it with the last version of the BIOS. http://www.motherboards.org/mobot/bios/Epox/EP-BX3/

It's supposed to support up to 65 gig hard drives. Booted with a 98SE floppy, FDISK has no problem with a 40 gig drive but format insists the drive is only 4 gig and scandisk during setup of 95B "fixes" the FAT to cut it down to only 4 gig.

This board when released supported drives up to 32 gig, it NEVER had any of the lower limitations. Looks like Epox screwed something up.

Can the BIOS be fixed? I don't care if 128gig or larger support is added but I'd like it to have a correct fix for up to 65 gig.
