I've got a Matsonic MS8308Ep motherboard with one 60Gb and one 10GB HD and I am looking to upgrade the 10GB HD. However, I'm unsure what size HD the BIOS supports. Checked the Matsonic web site but no readme file in the updated BIOS. Also I'm a bit wary of flashing the BIOS after a failure and dead PC last time.
So, does anyone have any info regarding the largest HD size that the following BIOS version for this mobo supports?

An AMI BIOS of that date should support up to 128 GiB (137 GB).
