No, i didn't say to try different bios modes. I said (which fdisk also
says) that you should:
1. Go into the bios, see what it reports as the CHS
2. Reboot  (i thought this part was a given to get back to Fdisk)
3. When you get up to the fdisk section, enter the CHS value given to
you by the bios
    using the g key, and writing it manually.
