SATA ports not enabled.

My mother board is Intel D915GAV.
BIOS EV91510A.86A.0482
I have installed an LG DVD burner using an IDE to SATA adapter and cable as the IDE slots are being used. The SATA ports 0-3 are "not detected" in the BIOS. How and where do I enable them to use my DVD drive?

    My IDE to SATA adapter isn't recognized by the MB! It plugs directly into my hard drive, then the IDE cable is attached as well as the power to the adapter and the drive itself. When I reboot - no SATA drives are detected. What can I do? or is it possible the new adapter is defective.

    Had to put in new mobo and trying to use ide to sata convert but BIOS says sata ports not enabled. Drive setting was already enhanced. I also tried setting detection to manual and that gave me an option to "enable Serial ATA." That didn't work either. Any ideas?

Boot your pc and go into your BIOS. Select ATA/IDE configuration. Select advanced and then drive configuration. Yours should be set to Enhanced ( or Native ). Hit F10 to save and exit or use the top menu. See if this helps. If this did't work you might have a cable that needs a floppy power cable plugged into the hard drive along with others. If this fixed your problem please rate it as fixed. If it didn't just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you further. Thanks.

Gateway 5300S Desktop PC - need original BIOS


Hello you can try one of the bios file from here as it is a INTEL mainboard:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Desktop+Boards&ProductLine=Intel%C2%AE+915+Express+Chipset+Family+Boards&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+Desktop+Board+D915GAG

Try one of the preversions. Your current bios file could be damaged.
Download the exe file so you can update the bios while the system is running.Don`t use unautorized programs to upgrade the bios it could go very wrong.

I could not find the original bios file.
Have you entered a wrong model ?

Here is the gateway support site:

http://support.gateway.com/product/?cmpid=supportnav

If you find the model here please unzip the file before you go any further.
And be 100% sure its the right model.

Hope this will help you

That motherboard doesnt support ATA it supports upto 6 SATA devices which is actually better and faster. You will need to take your DVD/RW back and ask to swap for a SATA and also make sure you buy a SATA cable and good thing is these are actually cheaper and faster. Its actually a very nice motherboard dont be disappointed. Cheers from Scott and plz vote

Sir my problem is that my SATA hard disk not detected by system. Also when i detect the SATA/IDE hard disk system hang, and nothing happen. But that time keyboard not hang. My SATA ports work...


Each PATA device (disk-drive or CD/DVD) drive has some small jumpers.

For the two devices connected via the one ribbon-cable,
set the jumpers on one device to the MA(ster) setting,
and set the other device to the SL(ave) setting.

Or, set both devices on the one cable to the C(able)S(elect) setting.

When properly set, both devices will be quickly and properly detected.

Be sure that your BIOS SETUP has been configured to allow SATA devices,
i.e., not set to "disabled" mode.
