Here are the BIOS-es for that board:

But you must install the chipset drivers, from here:

There are more than 1 board GA-6VTE, like VTE-A, maybe there are bioses for these boards. But from the MB manual the ATA 100 is supported, but for Windows XP you need drivers. Anyway, how can you tell there is udma66 and not udma 100? Maybe you have another disks on the same controller that limits the udma mode.
