***If you ask for a patch, your email had better be valid, since mods often send them to you.***

If your problem is capacity, post the HDD capacity you need, followed by your make & model or BIOS id string. eg:

40GB: Asus TX-97E
or
60GB: 07/21/98-i440bx-smc60x-2a69kf39c-00

Please first visit our patched Bios site, maybe a Bios for your board has already been patched.

If you don't have a generic BIOS id string, post the oem signon - the message just below AMI or AWARD Bios message or Logo - maybe with a picture added(if possible).

Note: Make an attempt to determine your make & model, as well as check the manufacturer's home page for an updated BIOS before you ask for a patch. Read the FAQ, and the Collected Wisdom forum if you don't know how to determine your make & model.

Please always post your complete Bios-ID and the Bios Eval !!
This gives us the maximum information needed to find a correct Bios for you !

Easy way to get the Bios-ID and the Bios OEM Signon/Eval is by using the Unicore Bios Agent from our main page using the link in the top left corner (left of wimsbios Logo)
Please post only the part of the Bios Agent report as the examples show !
