You install a SATA hard drive and then turn on the computer for the first time. You access UEFI/BIOS setup and see that the drive is not recognized. Which of the following do you do next?

a. Turn off the computer, open the case, and verify that memory modules on the motherboard have not become loose.

b. Turn off the computer, open the case, and verify that the data cable and power cable are connected correctly and jumpers on the drive are set correctly.

c. Verify that UEFI/BIOS autodetection is enabled.

d. Reboot the computer and enter UEFI/BIOS setup again to see if it now recognizes the drive.

Program Explanation

Given: Serial Advanced Technology Attachment.

To find:  The method which should be followed if the user accesses the UEFI/BIOS setup after installation of the SATA hard drive but is unable to detect the drive.

Solution:

If the SATA hard drive does not recognize the system, then check if the BIOS/UEFI setup auto-

detection mode is on. The auto-detection mode helps in detecting the hard drive automatically

when the system is switched on.

Hence, option (c) is correct.
