    SATA ports are not installed

      have Intel desktop board D945GNT. And recently I reset (removed and replaced) my CMOS battery. Consequence reboot resulted in unrecognized Hard-disk. After going through the BIOS I found out that my SATA ports (all four of them) are not installed.


      BIOS  Drive Configuration  menu looks like this


      USE AUTOMATIC MODE          <Enabled>

      ATA/IDE MODE                <Enhanced>
      S. M. A. R. T.              <Enabled>
      SATA Port 0                 <Not Installed>
      SATA Port 1                 <Not Installed>
      SATA Port 2                 <Not Installed>
      SATA Port 3                 <Not Installed>


      What can I do to resolve this?
