Which form factor 7010 do you have?

Only the Mini-tower has 4 SATA ports, SATA0 -  SATA3

Desktop and Small Form have 3 SATA ports, SATA 0 - SATA2

Ultra Small Form has 2 SATA ports

And the optical drive, if you have one, probably uses of the SATA ports.

Below is the Optiplex 7010 MT motherboard. Which one is not working? And what device is plugged into that non-working SATA port? List all other SATA devices plugged in and what ports they are using.
24 SATA 3
22 SATA 2
21 SATA 1
17 SATA 0

While in the BIOS, did you go to System Configuration- Drives and make sure all were checked?

The HDD should stay in the blue 17. Are you saying that you tested the optical drive in all three ports =

24 SATA 3

22 SATA 2

21 SATA 1

And when you boot into the BIOS, the optical drive appeared on 22 SATA 2 & 21 SATA 1, but not on

24 SATA 3?

Just a couple of WAGs here...

Do you have a RAID setup? A RAID setup might hide one of the SATA ports.

If you disconnect the HDD that's connected to SATA3 on the motherboard, does that port show up anywhere in BIOS now?

Use a camera and take and post pictures of your BIOS.
