    Hi,

    I've a gateway pc which has S.M.A.R.T enabled, but however whichever software I use, I can't read S.M.A.R.T info out of any harddrive I installed.

    As far as I can tell, the bios intentionally masked the S.M.A.R.T info, damn them. Also there's a VGA chip on board, they must have masked it as well.

    Can someone point me a direction how to fix this?

    The bios can be downloaded at

    Thanks for the reply, which amibcp version you are using? 3.37 just hangs when opening this file.
