My backups were taking too long, so I bought an SATA to eSATA external host bracket and installed it in my server. I knew nothing about this so I thought I could just boot up and it would recognize my external HDD that I hooked up to it but that did not work. After some tooling around, I found that the BIOS has both "SATA Port A" and "SATA Port B" OFF. I set them to "automatic" I believe, and rebooted but each time I reboot, it gets set back to the OFF setting. Any idea what is going on? Do I need to do anything with drivers or anything? I'm very wet behind the ear with all this.
No announcement yet.
