    I have a 2462 with the 2.14 bios. Is this version of the bios able to run
    greater than 137 gig hard drives? Is anyone successfully using 250 gig
    drives in their 2462s? Thanks!

    I have a Maxtor 200 gig running just fine and I am using Bios 2.09. I
    run windows 2000 and the only problem I had was that Windows could not
    format a drive or partition larger than 37 gigs, so I had resort to a
    boot disc to partition and format. The bios was able to recognize the
    drive just fine. Windows was able to recognize the drive before I
    formatted but I couldnt use it until I did it the old fashioned way in
    Dos. My guess is that the mobo will be able to recognize larger drives.
