Maybe this will offer encouragement. I have an Abit BH6 motherboard; it was
made before 1999. (IIRC the board had a similar "big disk" problem that was
fixed after a BIOS update.) I updated the BIOS by going to Abit's
international website and following links for drivers/BIOS. It's not that
tough once you find information and instructions. You'll need a floppy and
maybe a Windows machine from which to make the floppy.
