Hi, I have a old emachines 250 that I would like to transform into a mini private ftp server. The eM250 already has a 160GB hdd, but I would like to add more space using two sata 3.5 hdds that I already have. The motherboard has 2 mini-pcie slots, so I bought a converter to sata at amazon.de: http://www.inline-info.de/art/de/66901/InLineMiniPCIeKarte,2xSATA6Gbs.html Chip: ASM1061 The problem is the sata card is not recognized, but I know the slot is fine because the wifi card is recognized. Can the bios be modded so that it recognizes the card?

Thanks for any help.
