Nasty HD problems

    I have hard drives that causes my BIOS to freeze,and are not
    accessible to older computers where the BIOS sees the drive.

    Is there a (nasty?) way to alter a computer so that there is a very
    simple-minded BIOS (say on the order of a Compaq Presario 5185 AMD K6-2)
    so then an extensive HD test suite could be used?
    The BIOS of an ASUS P2L-B P2-180 is too sophisticated and hangs; a
    286 only "knows" CHS and maybe cannot support LBA even with fancy software.

    Next, where can one get a fairly extensive test suite and what OS
    would one be forced to use?
