I need a BIOS update for the following motherboard:

Bios TYPE: Award Modular Bios v4.51PG
Bios Date: 07/22/97
Bios ID: 07/22/97-i430VX-ITE8680-2A59GV3EC-00
OEM Sign-On: (70722A)
Super I/O: ITE 8679 or 8680 rev 0 found at port 279h
Chipset: Intel Triton 430VX rev 2

It's an old LASER computer (A dutch brand). Hopefully someone can find me an update so i can put in a larger HD. Also someone knows what the maximum size for HD is for the current BIOS?

Thanxs in advance

Best thing would be for you to inspect the board and see whether it bears any markings such as MB320NH. The ID matches the PCPartner BIOS MB320NH in this post but with an earlier date string.

Thanxs for your reply, but i found a 20 GB HD that worked.
So for now my problem is solved, because 20 GB is more then enough for my "first" own computer... i don't use it that much anymore, only for a few very old gamez :)

Thanxs mate

In case you ever want to fit a harddisk >32GB, this one was patched already:

It's for the MB520NH.
