Re: BIOS upgrading

The drive is seen. The mainboard uses a jmicron chip, which recognises it. As 
can be found on google there have been many issues with this chip but I'm 
suspecting in my case it's not only the chip but also a rotten BIOS.
Anyway, after upgrading at least fedora worked (it's down again for some 
strange unknown reason).
I installed many fedora machines over the past years, but never came along a 
mainboard like this (MSI P965 Neo). This is causing so much issues that I 
think that if I can't solve it by tomorrow I buy me another board.

I tried that, same result.

I guess I may to do that if grub keeps failing on me, but I'm not yet at a 
point where I give up on this box. I will give it try just to see if windows 
boots well again though.
