    I have a Chaintech 6BTA3 motherboard with the latest BIOS update
    (dated 28/12/99) and was wondering if anyone knows what is the largest
    hard disk drive that's supported by this BIOS version? I do know that
    the previous BIOS version (dated 13/5/99) only supports hard disks up
    to either 32Gb or 64Gb, which I discovered upon installation of my
    80Gb HD. Unfortunately Chaintech's website is not very forthcoming
    with supported HD sizes for their BIOSes.

    I am now looking to buy a 160Gb HD but am unsure if this BIOS can
    handle it. I am also running Win98 SE, although I don't anticipate
    any problems there as I there weren't any issues when installing the
    80Gb HD.

    If anyone can offer any advice on this matter I would greatly
    apreciate it.

    You are the first person I have ever seen mention that board. I have one
    running a P3 450 and I do video editing on it. What a board ....very very
    slick and fast.

    I too have an 80gb drive and I too wonder how far you can go....chaintech
    support in holland is very good and quick to respond so why not ask them and
    post the reply here....just a thought?

    I ask them too many questions so I have to break for a while he he!
