The issue with your board is that it can't see drives above a certain size. This does require a BIOS update, usually involving a floppy drive. Look in your BIOS - there may be an option for you to be able to boot from other devices. Check to see if "USB Floppy" is one, as it means you could potentially use an external floppy drive, which are cheap at most electronics stores.

Alternatively, if you or a friend has another computer, you might try borrowing a floppy drive to do the update.

Alternatively, you could go to the manufacturer's website and check the information they have for your particular board. Many now let you download an executable file with the recent BIOS updates that you can use without having to use a floppy drive. Some also have methods that you can burn to a CD.

Does a 80 gb hdd require a bios update for this computer


Hi:
Your computer will support an 80 gb hard drive. It will recognize up to 137 gb, and you could actually install a 160, with the included set up software that shipped with the new hard drive.

I've replaced the hard drive with a 160gb drive but windows xp pro installer says it's only 131070 MB. On another computer it says it's 152625 MB. Do I need to update the BIOS?


no, when u install a partition on a hdd it will not show when u scan for disk size from windows as the partitions are seperated to keep it safe from many common issues. it looks like you may have installed windows again once it was in the new computer or just allocated additional space to the partition......dont worry, if your hdd gets full, windows will suggest to automatically slim down the partition for you




good luck and pls rate this post!!!!!! :D

How can i get update for Bios


Hi there.

You can download the BIOS update from the Acer website here:
http://us.acer.com/acer/service.do?LanguageISOCtxParam=en&miu10einu24.current.attN2B2F2EEF=3750&sp=page15e&ctx2.c2att1=25&miu10ekcond13.attN2B2F2EEF=3750&CountryISOCtxParam=US&ctx1g.c2att92=453&ctx1.att21k=1&CRC=2054404012

Just select your make and model, then underneath that, select your Operating System. Then just click on the BIOS tab, then the orange icon to the left of the BIOS file.

Hope that helps.

ASUS P4S533 mother board not supporting full 160 gb


This is happing becuase of your motherboards BIOS !
Really, this happened to me too. You see, our motherboards which are very old cant support above 80 and so on. This is beacuse of the BIOS. You will need to update your BIOS inorder to give new features.

Try go to the Asus home page and download the latest driver for your motherboard. Then install it in your motherboard's BIOS. There is intructions for this in the Asus's home page.
