Smells more like a bios problem to me.

One of our stations is a Dell Dimension 8400 that comes with SATA drives.
We installed some additional IDE drives and when we start the station (cold 
boot it), the bios does not see the drives because they are a few seconds 
slower to wake up.  

The solution in our case was to set the bios that it does an extended post 
check.  That gives the disks 10 or so seconds more to power up.  

After that, everything's a ok.
