Operating System Version: Win2k Pro
Problem Application Name & Version: BIOS
Problem Hardware Make & Model: IBM Deskstar 60GB 7200/100
Error Messages: (only freezes)

I have read an article in this forum which solved a quite similar problem on anouter mainboard with another hard disk, so I decided to write you min, too.

I have a 300Mhz PII installed, Slot 1 in a Chaintech 6esa0 Mainboard. After installing the IBM HD the computer freezes when detecting the HD in BIOS Setup as well as in Automatic detection at startup and at any other value inserted in user setup (in bios).

I downloaded and updated the BIOS (chaintech homepage) to version 621 [6esa0621.bin] which doesn't solce the problem. I can boot by using none in the HD settings in BIOS or disconnecting the drive.

Some additional stuff:
The HD is not working on any port. I'd love it to be Primary, Master btw.
DiskManager is not able to find the drive tho DRive Fitness Test (of IBM) interestingly is, also IBM feature tool wirks with the HD and even sets values (DMA and SMART...-btw I already tried DMA1,2,3,4,5 and no DMA)

Thanks in Advance for any clue

Did the latest BIOS upgrade mention that it supports large drives like the one you have installed? You may want to contact Chaintech support to see if a BIOS upgrade that will support a 60GB drive exists.
