80GB hard drive on Pentium 100 system!

Just installed an 80GB hard drive on my old Pentium 100 file server, guess how big the largest drive BIOS would support is? Actually I can't say for certain, I only know that this crusty old DTK (gemlight) PC/AT motherboard DOES SUPPORT the 80GB drive in BIOS!!! Who'd have thought it?

  1. Wow, that is impressive. I don't think I would have even tried.

    Crap, all the good ones are already taken.
  2. a pentium 100 mobo won't support 80GB, it'll probably come up as 10gig max. if u lucky, you might find bios update, but i doubt you'd able to.
  3. d00d, you're so wrong! It DOES support an 80GB drive, because it IS supporting an 80GB drive, at full size, for both the OS and the storage! IT's running Windows 95B. Would you like a screen shot?
    The board is a DTK PAM-0057I E0, here's the BIOS update I used <A HREF="http://www.dtk.com.tw/download/bios/57ie0b.html" target="_new">http://www.dtk.com.tw/download/bios/57ie0b.html</A> Notice the problem the BIOS update fixed-the 36GB barrier.
