Rerun utility ?

You mean.. by low level disk format ?

Or kill all partitions ? and try ... ?

But , I dont think this is the problem.
It's the limitation in BIOS to not set highter number specfied by Maxtor.

Same bios ...

That looks to be some early (v1.0) board - the 6230112a.bin is "ATC-6230 VER:1.1 02 WB". It's for v1.1 board. I can't find anything about v1.0. I can patch your BIOS to support HDDs over 32GB - save it to file and send it to my e-mail. [edit] Found it: http://file2.mydrivers.com/bios/6230V104.zip ....
