Any techies out there with a bit of sympathy for a lost sole???

I installed a second HDD to my pc. M/board (Gigabyte GA-BX2000+) wouldn't recognise it so I d/loaded latest version from G/byte site and flashed it.
Worked perfectly for 2 weeks before crashing and reverting to backup bios.
Obviously this is back to sq 1 - m/board can't see the second drive.
I am now stuck with the old bios which, for some obscure reason, was GA-6BXE, and my pc boots to the old drive (only when I disconnect the new one) via backup bios.

Does anyone know how I can go back to the main bios and perhaps flash it again?
Or do I now flash the backup bios - with eyes closed and hands clasped in prayer?
AND why did the backup bios kick in after 2 weeks, and how can I prevent that happening a second time?
I am using W/xp. I have tried most configurations on IDE1&2 with both drives and CDROM. :thumbsup:
Any assistance will be met with absolute glee!!!

Is this motherboard still under warranty by chance?
