Just installed another Sata HDD, can't get into the BIOS using F2 nor boot menu pressing F12. When I power on, after the logo screen I am seeing:
No boot device available
SATA O: None
SATA 1: Installed
SATA 2: None
SATA 3: None
Help please?

I know this reply is late and you probably figured out a solution but try putting the Bootable SATA drive on port 0.


Edit: Check this dell thread.


If you did find a solution, can you post it?

It may be time to replace that CMOS battery.
