I am attempting to breathe life back into my sisters computer. The mobo is a MSI K7T Turbo Ver 3. (No Raid)
I want to upgrade from a Duron 750 to a Athlon XP 1600+ and install a 100 or 133 mhz Ultra ATA HD.
From all the research I have done it appears that this board will only accept a DMA HD. I have researched all the bios recoveries on the MSI website and only the 3.1 version even mentions the words "ATA" but I'm not sure it's what I need. I flashed it to Ver 3.5 but still won't recognize an ATA HD. Is there a bios flash to allow an ATA HD to work or will I need a controller card? Does the latest bios update cover all the previous ones too or do I need one specifically for the ATA problem?
