I have a gigabyte motherboard and I have accidentally broken both of the sata ports where I want to connect to my hdd. I have a bootbable usb that boots windows 10 to the installation screen but, since I can't plug my hard drive into any sata ports, I do not have a drive to download windows to. Is there any way around this? I also have a sata to usb adapter and I've tried to plug my hdd into the usb port to get it to recognize the drive this way, but I had no luck. Any ideas? Thanks!

I broke one of mine, luckily it wasn't the master one and I have four. I forgot the SATA cable had a locking latch and pulled the plastic off of it leaving the pins sticking up. I have experience with a PCIE SATA card adapter, Had to put one in a old HP desktop because the combo GPU/SATA controller chip didn't' have a big enough heat sink and failed from overheating. (That is why I don't recommend HP'S) I had to do a factory restore to get it to boot from the PCIE SATA card. I guess the boot manager was looking for the MB SATA controller.
