If the BIOS can not see the hard drive then he will not be able to partition the hard drive, and what are you gonna do with about 5000 8MB partitions, that will be useless.

1) use BIOS Pather (at your own risk, however, i my opinion it works good) - it will patch current BIOS to recognize drives up to 137GB,
2) find BIOS on manufacturer's site and flash (manufacturer and model can be found on board, usually between PCI slots, manufacturer can be recognized from lower BIOS string on first boot screen),
3) install IDE controller.
