    Go to the BIOS and enable the SATA-IDE controller......also check the jumpers...Install the drivers.....of the SATA controller after enabling it from the BIOS.....

    Check in your BIOS if you have options like these for enabling/disabling SATA HDDs.... if option is there then make sure the port to which the HDD is attached is enabled.
