BIOS updating and programming

  1. heh! little unsure of where to place this, so if its in the wrong place then feel free to mod me over!

    I have an hewlett packard omnibook xe3 (gc) p3 700mhz that is currently running with a 10gb drive.

    Ive acquired an 80gb to drop into it, but its having issues!

    Now through my research ive managed to track down that i need to update my bios (pheonix v4.00 rev6.00 (pretty standard) and im specifically running v1.63 (gc.m1.63)

    Now i need a version that has the support for large hard disks.

    i did read that there is a 2.01 version, but im having immense trouble finding it. The newest version i can find on the hp site is the 1.63, which i did anyway, caused no issues (well, it changed my boot screen picture to a much nicer hp invents, but that was it!)

    So... i guess my question is; how do i enable hard disk support for my 80gb drive, or does anyone know of a newer bios version that i can update to?
