There is a 2/99 Bios in the net but no support for big HDD - one of the moderators should patch the latest Bios for you .

:? When i run the awd.exe flasher utility from a bootable diskette and when i try to change my old bios for the patched bios 650_205Z.BIN bios that Nick sent me, the program gives me the following error message: "The program file´s part number does not match with your system!". Of course, after read this message, i don´t continue with the flash. What can i do? Thanks.

This message means that the BIOS ID is not the same. On the BIOS I sent you it is "i440BX-19980205C-00" after the date, on your present BIOS it is "I440BX-19981010C-00". If you are sure this is the 650B board I would go ahead and flash. Some manufacturers change(d) the ID with every version.
