"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Depending on the type of HD, there is overlay software that allows larger than 8.4 gig.

> I don't know the motherboard name

Turn your monitor on, and let it warm-up for a few seconds.
Turn your computer on,
and be ready to press SHIFT-and-PAUSE once.
This will "freeze" the start-up information on your monitor.
Write the information down.
Press ENTER to "unfreeze".

Post the saved information to this question.

Ces,
Just some detailed info for you.  This is from the Amibios web page.  Along with Otta suggestion, you can try what Amibios says.  This is not to step on Otta's toes, just saving you a trip to the web page I furnished earlier.

.. Turn the system power off.
2. Unplug your keyboard or hold down one of the keys on the keyboard
3. Power-on the system (you should get a keyboard error)
4. Notice the long string of numbers in the lower left hand corner of your screen. This is your BIOS identification string. It will look like one of these:

51-0102-zz5123-00111111-101094-AMIS123-P
This indicates a motherboard with BIOS from 1991 to Present. The BIOS identification number for this BIOS identification string, which is in BOLD and in the third set of numbers, would be zz5123.
DINT-1123-04990-K8
This indicates a motherboard with BIOS from 1986 - 1990.The BIOS identification number for this BIOS identification string, which is in BOLD and is in the second set of numbers, would be 1123.
If the first BOLD number of the second set of numbers is:

1, 2, 8, or a letter - it is a NON-AMI Taiwanese manufactured motherboard
3, 4, or 5 - it is a TRUE AMI motherboard
50 or 6 - it is a NON-AMI US made motherboard
9 - it is a Evaluation BIOS for a Taiwanese manufacturer.

NOTE: If you have a identification number that corresponds to a NON-AMI motherboard you will need to contact the company or person who sold you the product.

ALL FILES ON THIS WEB SITE AND FTP SITE ARE FOR AMERICAN MEGATRENDS MOTHERBOARDS ONLY.
IF YOUR MOTHERBOARD DOES NOT HAVE A SERIES NUMBER ON THE BOARD ITSELF OR A SERIES NUMBER WHEN THE COMPUTER BOOTS UP YOU DO NOT HAVE AN AMI MOTHERBOARD. YOU WILL HAVE TO CONTACT YOUR MOTHERBOARD MANUFACTURER FOR ANY SUPPORT OR UPGRADES.

AMERICAN MEGATRENDS HAS NO WAY OF TELLING WHO MANUFACTURED YOUR MOTHERBOARD. PLEASE CHECK YOUR DOCUMENTATION OR THE BOARD ITSELF.

Overseas motherboard manfacturer (non-USA)

To find your overseas motherboard manfacturer, please look at the third (3) set of numbers in your BIOS string. Find the corresponding numbers in your BIOS string match them with the numbers below.

Well, Now we know what board it is:

If you will notice, it states that trhe capacity is 8.4 g hard drive.  As stated earlier, a driver overlay is needed.  It is located at http://www.wdc.com/service/ftp/drives.html for you to download.  As stated on the website I provided, it will allow you to exceed the 8.4 barrier.

Given the above information,
the web-site at:

http://www.pcchips.com.tw/BIOS.html

lists the availability of updated BIOS, which may(!!!) add support for "larger-than-8.4GB" hard-drives:

M715 (PCB V1.2) (990401s.rom)
                           
M715 (PCB V3.0) (990301s.rom)

Also, see:
http://www.pcchips.com/m715.html
and:
http://www.pcchips.com/m715bios.html

This latter page does not explain the contents/updates of each revised BIOS, but it gives an E-mail address: bill@mail.pcchips.com.tw
which you should try, and ask them if the revised BIOS-code supports "large" hard-drives.

Ces,
Did you try this from the WDC home page?

Important Note: Rather than using FDISK, Western Digital highly recommends using our Data Lifeguard Tools software to partition and format your 8.4 GB or larger drive.  Virtually all problems associated with the 8.4 GB BIOS limitation can be resolved by using Data Lifeguard Tools to install your drive. http://www.westerndigital.com/service/FAQ/8-4.html
