I have a Socket 7 motherboard I am trying to use with 40GB+ hard drives but it locks up during detection. It's probably the 32GB div/0 bug. I don't know how to patch these BIOSes, I hoped maybe someone here could help?

BIOS attached..

The bios in that zip files is already supporting drives over 64GB (until about 128GB) so something else must be going wrong.
Check master/slave jumpers and/or your power supply.

Do not assume anything
