    Look in your BIOS/UEFI settings and see if hot swapping is enabled for that SATA port. If you don't have that option, or hot swapping is disabled, then:

    Try this registry entry:

    I can make a .reg file for the above entries, if needed.

    Now attached is the .reg file to add that entry to the registry.
