Hi, I have a 2 additional WD SATA drives that are plugged into SATA 2, 3 respectively. However, they will not boot up with the primary SATA drive in SATA1.
The system goes into a loop and does not end the loop, until you disconnect the second and third SATA drives. The drives will not boot even plugged in externally.
They are all recognized by the BIOS without any problem.
