If the SATA drive is in an external enclosure, plugging into the PC via USB, then the probelm is the USB drivers. Check to make sure ALL USB ports are enabled in the BIOS. And if you have an aftermarket controller, make sure the drivers are install. But Windows should do that upon boot up. So maybe it's the USB port itself. Make sure all the cables are plugged into, including the front panel cables to the motherboard. Check the ports with a thumb/flash drive to see if it works.
