    How to enable all 4 SATA ports in a DG43GT chipset mother board

    Jeevan.Sunkersett

      Hi,

       

      I have a desktop with an Intel DG43GT chipset - with a DVD writer and a 320 Gb SATA hard disk.

       

      I removed the DVD writer and connected a new WD 1Tb SATA hard disk and could use it under Windows-7

       

      In the process, discovered that I am unable to activate all 4 (Four) on board SATA ports - only 2 get activated; and so cannot use 2 SATA Hard Disks + 1 DVD Writer, together

       

      I browsed the net and found a couple of BIOS settings and updated them, but still cannot get all 4 SATA ports to get enabled.

       

      Any clues?

       

      thanks
