There's only the intel one (Win9x only) and the hdinfo 1.0 freeware, but its useless since it need full version to show it

Can you tell me which BIOS does not support LBA48? I have not heard about LBA48 for more than a decade.

Plug in your drive. If its capacity shows more than 137GB, your motherboard supports it. I don't know of any drives that does not support LBA48. This is so prehistoric. You can check the drive with Everest. It will show LBA48-Enabled, LBA48 support, etc. If you dont have OS, just boot DOS with MHDD or any other utility. They all will show.

Just for curiousity's sake... you are coming up always with unusual topics. What is the situation of LBA48 with you?
