and then that happened

so, my computer is kinda running now....
I mean, I got the OS up and running, and everything is generally working, but I'm still down a drive.

see, I have this super old ATA drive that the only way I could get ti to work on my old motherboards was to disable UDMA, or change the way it was read. otherwise, the system just won't run. but, apparently, my current BIOS won't allow that, so I can't seem to get the drive working. no option in the BIOS, and windows won't load without changing the settings. so, yeah.
if anyone has any ideas, post it in the comments.
otherwise, i'll resume posting after I sleep for a while.

  4. Have you tried flashing the bios to a newer version? It's a long shot, but sometimes they do add additional features.
