What do I need to do, to get the Dell Inspiron 531 BIOS (Phoenix Award Ver. 1.0.3) to recognize all of the SATA controllers?
It seems it will only see the original two and nothing more.
I would like to add a second HDD but it won't recognize ANY of the ones I've installed.
I've been in the BIOS and when I arrow down to highlight the SATA entries it just goes right past them onto the next entry (System then Memory I think).
I also switched out the SATA cables and only SATA 0 & 1 recognize anything.
So, I guess my question really should be:
Is there somewhere in the BIOS I'm not seeing, where I can turn on the SATA 2 & 3 controllers?
Would flashing the BIOS make any difference?.
I consider myself to be well above average in PC savvy, however, in many years of working on computers I have never had this issue present itself.
Any & all help is greatly appreciated!
