That is a little surprise to me, but I am not up on the ins and outs
of IDE/SATA labeling.    Most of my machines - all of the servers - 
have SCSI or SAS disk which does it differently (and more easily).
My only SATA machines have only a single disk.  

One thing to ask is:   what does it have as c:, d: and e: ??
Maybe something is plugged in the wrong - or inconvenient - order
on the controller.  Or, I suppose there might be a jumper issue.
