It's an award BIOS. the old BIOS ID was 12/17/98-ALADDIN5-<<P5A>>-00
that was BIOS revision 1005.
I upgraded to BIOS-revision 1007a ( bios date: 07/16/99)
There was also revision 1011.005 (beta 5).
Version 1007a still didn't support my 40GB harddisk, so I used the 32GB-jumper on the disk.
I installed windows 2000 on the first partition, but strange things are happening now.
If I open some of the directories on the second partition, I get the message "The disk in Drive D is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?"
This happens with subdirectories of partition.
When I get this message, I get this warning in the system-logs:
anybody knows whats going on or where I should start looking?An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk0\DR0 during a paging operation.
Is it caused by the jumper I used on the disk to limit it to 32GB?
Should I upgrade to that beta version of the bios and hope that it will support harddisks over 32GB?
