Using the Award BIOS IDs link at the top of the page suggests your board is a PC Partner intel 440BX board, but they made several. Take a look at this link on the pc partner website and see if you can identify your board. If there is not an updated BIOS which removes the 32 Gb limit you may need a p...

Thanks, Rainbow. I've just found the details under "ga586hx Bios support for 32Gb+" and I see there's a program to find the byte sequence and change it. I'll wait and try your fix.

32GB+: PC-Chips M577

Hi, Rainbow. Can you do a big disk fix for PC-Chips M577 BIOS based on Jan Steunebrink's 990309J.BIN ? there are quite a few people who would be interested.

Or could you give advice where to make the changes ? In the original.tmp ?

Thanks

MODBIN problem with PC-Chips M577 BIOS disk tables

I loaded the latest PC-Chips M577 BIOS, 990306s.bin, into MODBIN and was surprised to find that the disk table was complete garbage. Does one of the experts know why ? The same applies to Jan Steunebrink's (sp?) modified version, 990309j.bin. I was really investigating how difficult it would be to i...
