I have an older Dell PowerEdge SC1430 server that I is not recognizing the SATA 2 hard drives I have installed (WD2500YS). I have 2 of these drives installed on SATA0 and SATA1. I believe I have the latest BIOS installed (1.4.0) from Dell. The drives are empty (no OS). I get the following error when trying to install WIn7/64 bit (get similar error when attempting to install Win2003). I do not have a PERC installed (RAID controller). There seems to be only one SATA setting (under "Integrated Devices>Embedded SATA" where there are only 2 options (ATA MODE and Off).
Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu.
