  • Turn off SATA 1 in the bios and save the settings. There is nothing connected to sata 1 port.

  • i forgot to add the full error message is :

    Drive1 not found: Serial ATA, SATA 1

    strike F1 to continue, F2 to run setup utility

    press F5 to run onboard diagnostics

    pressing F1 boots the computer up just fine
