What about termination?  Does Disk B have on-board termination and is it
enabled or disabled as required?  Also, termination will be relative to
where the drive sits on the cable.  The first and last devices on the
cable should be terminated.  Typically this is the controller on one end
and the last drive on the other.  The last drive should be on the last

What does the BIOS tell you is connected when you connect the boot disk
and drive B?
