Looks like an MSI-6119 (Microstar)

The latest BIOS releases do have support for HDDs over 64GB.

Please verify your model number AND revision number with looking at your mainboard .
With a 6119 you have to separate the "CPU Plug an Play"(CPU setings in Bios) version and the "Standard" mainboard with DIP switches . ... ME=MS-6119
German MSI site says Rev 1.1x is Standard mainboard Rev 1.2x and higher PnP . ... ME=MS-6119

a) You'll have to physically find an MS6119 inscription (or sticker) on the board.

by the way, you know if the AGP slot on this motherboard supports Gforce 4 video card?

so, if i haven't checked the name on the board itself, and the windows says it's ms-6119, i have nothing to worry and get could the bios upgrade from the site and run it?

You can donwload the MSI Bios but they offer two Bios for Standard and CPU PnP version of your Board .
Using the wrong version may render your system unusable .

There should be displayed some kind of version info on the First screen were you saw the Bios-ID on the bottom line :
Press "PAUSE" key and post the info displayed in the upper left just below the Award Logo .
Should be something wiht MS-6119 or W6119MS xxxx

W6119MS = Standard Mainboard
W6119MJ = PnP Mainboard
