Hi mgfo. It is very unlikely that you can do it with a BIOS setting. Your options are
1) A new motherboard if your system will take it.
2) A flash BIOS upgrade if there is one available for your motherboard.
3) A software overlay if one is available for your new hard drive.
4) A PCI IDE interface card. You plug the card into a spare PCI slot, and the drive into the card. The card BIOS takes over after the motherboard BIOS fails to find a hard drive on the motherboard IDE bus.
