Hi Prutayisire,

Could you pleae describe me what you have done with the drive? Is the drive visible in BIOS? If you have removed some part of the hard drive, is it possible to put it back and rebuild the drive? I presume you may have cut the SAS connector in order to make it look like a SATA connector. Unfortunately, this could lead to serious connetivity issues. There is a high chance that the connector has been damaged. If I were you, I would avoid changing the connnection type manually and I would search for an adapter.

Hope this helps
