Actually now that I think about it, most likely that system would need a new hard drive controller card in order to read new drives. The one supplied (if any) is most likely a MFM or something like that; Predating standard IDE... From that email, it sounds like a standard year 2000 BIOS upgrade that...

Look for a pair of pins near the battery marked EXT BAT or something to that effect. Usually a pair of 4 pins in a row. That might be an external battery connector.

Probably because the new BIOS has a different string. BIOS Version : Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG Information : 07/19/2001-8363-686-K7VZAC-00 BIOS Message : MS8127C 07/19/2001 BIOS ID : K7VZA There is no place for D4 like in your current BIOS string.
