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?

Does it see the drive?
Did you check the cable to see if it has an issue?
Have you upgraded the BIOS? This might help:

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