I'm looking for an updated BIOS for my Award Modular BIOS v4.51PC. My current BIOS is dated 12/17/1998 and its updating is long due.
I've submitted an inquiry for an update to http://www.esupport.com and their answer shows that an updated version does exist and that it includes the following new features:
Hard Drive support up to 137 GB
Faster Intel and AMD CPU Upgrade Kit Support
Windows 2000 and Windows XP Compliance
ACPI Specification for Advanced Power Management
CD-ROM + LS-120 Boot Support

Do you know where can I find an updated BIOS? Where should I search for such a source?
