I bought this used desktop PC earlier this year. It only has a 20gb hard drive, so I am wanting to replace it with a larger one.

Here's my info

Program: eSupport.com BIOS Agent Version 3.66
BIOS Date: 12/04/01
BIOS Type: American Megatrends
BIOS ID: 63-1800-001169-00101111-071595-SOLANO-1SOLANO
OEM Sign-On: A6351MS V1.8
Chipset: Intel 1130 rev 4
Superio: Winbond 627F/HF rev 7 found at port 2Eh
OS: WinXP SP2
CPU: Pentium III 1000 Mhz MAX: 1600 Mhz
BIOS ROM In Socket: Yes
BIOS ROM Size: 512K
Memory Installed: 512 MB
Memory Maximum: 1024 MB
Memory Slot 01: 256 MB
Memory Slot 02: 256 MB
ACPI Revision: Unknown

I have yet to figure out how to enter the Bios setup. The booting process starts with Intel Boot Agent which I can access by crtl+S, but that only configures the boot order. Once that finishes, I see the screen for the bios post, but I have yet to enter the setup. I can pause, but there's nothing on the screen to tell me how to enter setup.

If I want to replace the current HD with a larger HD, I believe I will need to update the bios. The most current is version 2.0.

If it makes any difference, the NIC is built in the motherboard.
Intel(R) PRO/100 VM Network Connection

Help :oops:
