Removing/replacing the battery reset the BIOS to its defaults; all custom settings were lost. You should run thru each & every setting & correct as necessary.
If you don't have a copy of the manual, you'll find it here: Gigabyte 8KNXP Manual.
To answer your question, the SATA settings will be found under Integrated Peripherals. See page 45 of the manual.
EDIT: to install Windows, you'll have to configure the boot order so that the CD/DVD drive is listed before the hard drive. Hopefully you have enough RAM for Win7...at least 2GB?
