Flashing my bios
Posted on 2006-04-27
I have an old computer that I am trying to put a 40 gig hard drive in. It is an Infinia 7202 (made by Toshiba i think, but not sure). It has a pentium 200 mhz processor and I put Win98 on it.) I cannot get it to see any more than approx. 8 gig of the 40 gig hard drive. I have run Fdisk...removed all partitions, and created 1 new one. Even Fdisk reports only 8 + gigs available with 100% being used. I'm 99% sure the hard drive is in perfect condition. A very reliable source told me that it's not common but possibe that the bois is not capable of seeing any more than 8 gig. (Actually approx. 8046 MB.) even when running Fdisk. He told me I could flash the bois (apparently with software somewhere or something..maybe the same as a bois update...i don't know). Can anyone give me step by step instructions on where to get software and how to flash my bois or any other work around to get this computer to see the entire 40 gigs. I searched for bois updates but there was like 4000 some listed, all different. I don't have a clue what I need.
