By the date, it should. And judging by the nfo, it seems you already are. Was there an error or something?

I agree with Soupy... The only thing I can think of is that the drive may be set to UDMA 33 by default (Seagate does that - compatability reasons). If the board supports UDMA 66 or 100 and you have the correct cables then boot should show the what UDMA speed is being used.

I had reports this Bios supports HDD above 32GB but still some reports it does not .
If I rember correctly I herd of Maxtor 40GB running and WD sometimes not .
No Infos about Seagate and HDD above 64GB .
If it fails to run the HDD get an UDMA controller card that is able to get full speed out of your HDD as the OnBoard is only UDMA33 .
