U sure it's a BIOS update needed?
Maybe just driver update.
I just built a PC the other day and I needed to download the latest drivers from the site before it would enable the extra onboard IDE slots.
During XP install only the first 2 IDE slots worked (as well as the SATA). After installation of Windows XP, I visited the manufacturer's site & downloaded the proper IDE driver updates for my board. Now everything works just fine.
actually, i think i recall some IDE stuff being installed after i installed the EPoX device driver disc etc. do you think i dhould reconnect all my other devices now and try? or should i update bios first?
