If the board supports IDE, then you will have to select your IDE drive as the Primary IDE drive through the BIOS menus.

For More help, please state the model of the Motherboard OR laptop.

Thanks :)

If your laptop uses a SATA hard drive, what can you accomplish by changing it to IDE? Even if you can do that in the BIOS, you will likely just end up with a non-booting system. If you are trying to do something specific by doing that you may be better off asking how to do that instead of what you asked here.
