Bios does not register orginal HD

By TB111 ·
I have a Tyan Tsunami ATX - S1846 Motherboard. I have flashed the bios with the most current bios and now it won?t recognize the original 40 gig hard drive that was in the PC.

It will recognize other hard drives just fine. To rule out that the original drive is bad; I booted to it in another know good PC and boots just fine.

Flash your BIOS back to the last version. If you don't have a backup, you may need to contact the mobo's tech support to have them e-mail/ftp you one...

Manual Settings

You probably already thought of this but just in case... Install the HDD on a system which can recognize it. Enter the BIOS, open the basic config page, and write down all the technical specs for your drive. (ie. the size, sectors, sector size, etc.).
Reinstall the drive on your board, enter Bios, and enter the specifications manually. If you "arrow" to the HDD Master field, then use pageUp/pageDown, you should come to something like "user settings". Then you have to enter the data manually, save, and exit.
Hopefully you haven't tried this already and it works for you.
