Disable the native-SATA in the BIOS
If the BIOS provides an option to disable the native-SATA configuration in the BIOS, do the following steps.
1. Turn off the computer.
2 Press the power button and press f10 to open the BIOS Setup.
3. Use the cursor to navigate the Configuration options to locate the Native-SATA setting.
If there is a SATA setting, select the Disable option, and then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer.
but there is no option to change SATA settings in BIOS.

You probably need to install the driver.

Determine the type of processor in the computer, then search for and download the latest SATA AHCI driver from the processor manufacturer's web site. Some SATA AHCI drivers are available on the www.hp.com web site
