    Please list your computer configuration.

    Your BIOS may have a limit and you would need to update it.

    Some harddisks come with a jumper setting to limit the size of the harddisk and forcibly detect it.

    Before going any further.. you test the 80GB on another system to make sure there is no problem in the drive itself.

    :arrow: here is the link from where you can download new year 2002 bios

    http://www.pcchips.com.tw/PCCWeb/Downloads/ProductsDetail_Download.aspx?DetailID=45&DetailName=BIOS&DetailDesc=M748LT(V3.x)&MenuID=35&LanID=2

    Please make sure the model number matches your motherboard.
    (I take no guarantee for this)

    :( Unfortunately this is a BIOS limitation only and no other alternative apart from changing the motherboard iteself (to intel 810i).

    SO there is no option but to flash the BIOS.

    :arrow: Read the instructions on the website carefully.

    Hi,

    It is not a problem at all. First of all very whether your mother board support 80 GB hard disk. It it is so. Use Acronis Disk Director Suite 9.0 or Partition Magic 8.05. U can easily Handle ur hard disk with these softwares.

    Ramesh.

    To use any of these software first the Hard disk should be detected in BIOS and system should BOOT i think. Detection of the Hard disk is the main problem. Maybe the motherboard doesn't support 80GB, thats why the BIOS update is necessary (with caution!).
