    in case an older motherboard doesn't detect bigger hard disk, you can always opt for bios flashing.

    check out this website -- http://www.esupport.com/ to find the limitations of your bios and to flash it to a newer version.

    BIOS update is denzerous without knowing details of your mother board and BIOS fanufacturer. If updating is fail due to floppy bad sector or sudden power cut, you have to replace your mother board. To detect 80GB hard disk first visit the web page of your MBD manufacturer and check whether is update is avilable using your mother board model no.
    Before update read in details for what modication the upadte firmware is. Sometimes its for only some Power Management or PCI complience.

    force the Hard to a 32GB drive by changing the jumpers.
