Different Controllers

by TheChas In reply to installed sata hd with e ...

Each drive controller enumerates the devices connected to it starting with device 0.

The only exception is with integrated controllers that use the same interface. Then, the BIOS may be programmed to enumerate devices on the second controller starting at what would be the next logical device if the primary controller was fully populated.

This should not be an issue, and should not present any problems.
