I'm going to ask the obvious question:  After adding the second drive,
and noticing the change, did you try swapping the ports the drives were

I saw UUID later in the thread, and that'll help you with Linux, but not
GRUB.  You'll have to deal with getting the right drive, separately, to
begin booting a system.
