No, there is no limit. Nor is there still the master / slave concept
with SATA which is known from PATA.

Boot with CD1 into rescue mode and inspect /boot/grub/device.map. grub
searches for stage2 on the wrong disc. You will have to correct the grub
installation, best from grub shell. How to install grub from there
correctly has been explained here on the list (-> archive).
