after reading some replys on the qdi forums i have downloaded sx2ev22a.bin so my synatix2e m/board will recognise my 200gig hdd.can you please tell me how i apply this file as i aint got a clue.i also have the update for my bios from v2.0slcp to v21slcp.do i use the sx2ev22a.bin file or update the bios to get the full size of the hdd.sorry but i have no idea of how to do this so any help would be great.im using winxp pro sp1 and till now this m/board has been great and worked perfectly with everything ive plugged in it..............thanks mike

Personally if you do not know what you are doing I would advise you not to flash the BIOS, as you say the motherboard works perfectly and flashing it could leave you with a dead motherboard if you make a mistake.
If you want to give it a try I suggest you read this.
