I installed new sata HD and bios says none present?


You might have SATA drive disabled in BIOS. Try enabling each drive until you see yours. SATA0, SATA1, etc.

Cannot seem to find how to enable the sata ports. I've tried all the solutions suggested with no good outcome.


With the SATA drive properly attached to the cable, try clearing the NVRAM (CMOS). By clearing the NVRAM (CMOS), the system will redetect all the installed hardware including your new drive. Just follow the procedure I have outlined below. After the clearing of the NVRAM (CMOS) you may get a warning at boot up about the Diskette Drive if you do not have a floppy drive installed in the system. If that happens, just go into the BIOS Setup and disable the option for the Diskette Drive. The error message will be gone on the next reboot.

  • Reboot system and enter the BIOS Setup by pressing F2.
  • Turn on Caps Lock, Scroll Lock and Num Lock.
  • Press ALT + E then ALT + F (should hear beep) then ALT + B
If you need any further assistance please feel free to contact me again.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time
