BIOS Update for a Promise Ultra1-TX2 interface card

By rforbes ·
Hi there -

I would like to update the BIOS on a Promise Ultra100TX2 IDE Interface card in order to achieve 48bit LBA support. Promise has what appears to be the correct (downloadable) BIOS and driver, but nothing about procedure. I have never updated a BIOS before and I am uncertain about how to proceed. Can anyone help?

Promise has the manual here which should have directions

Basicially all you need do is download the BIOS Utility Unzip it copy the unzipped files to a Floppy/CD and Boot off the Floppy/CD to update the Promise Tech Card. It's fairly straight forward and the only thing you need to look out for is that you don't turn off or disconnect while the update is in progress.

Just overlooked the manual when I was on the Promise site. BIOS update was successful. Also had to get rid of the Microsoft driver and install the latest Promise driver - after which the 48 bit LBA support kicked right in.
