I have on my Dell Vostro 200 the original Bios (standard BIOS 1.0.16), however I do not have the option "virtual" that you talk. I was able to boot from a pen drive with the command PciRoot=1 but the installation does not find any HDs (i have enabled RAID). Could you send me the "modded" bios that I could use one my Dell? Thanks
