Re: 2nd hard drive installed in inspiron 531. sata ports not enabled

I had the same issue - here is the solution:

Reboot and enter bios setup (F2)

Step 1: HDD SMART: DISABLED

Step 2: Advanced / Integrated Peripherals / Serial-ATA Configuration;
set the SATA controller to SATA 1+2 - this activates the other 2 SATA ports

That should do it - good luck!
