SATA Drive not Recognized by BIOS

By mrcham ·
I have a Dell Poweredge 840. It came with a SAS 5iR controller. I want to use it to run an old copy of Netware 6.0.
I tried installing Netware with the controller but I could not find any Novell Drivers for the SAS 5iR controller.
Just one drive to install the the Netware OS would be better than nothing.

I removed the card. Connected one SATA drive to the SATA 0 controller on the motherboard but the BIOS does not recognize it.
Thus I can't load the OS.
How do I make the BIOS recognize the drive?

Don't know why they do this, but they do.
