The beta 2.4d BIOS:
Intel 440LX AGPSet BIOS for 6LX4 V2.4d

supports HDDs up to 128GB. Check jumpers on your HDD - looks like you have the 32GB clipping enabled!

thank you very much!
you were right. after posting my question i took a look at my hdd jumpers and they were forcing a 32gb limitation. my fault.
but thanks for the professional solution and fast reply!
yours, frank
