On an X6DAE-G2 motherboard in an SC823T-550LP chassis... system was
delivered with two disks. We added two more, but they don't show up in
the BIOS. I noticed that the backplane has 6 SATA connectors, but the
motherboard only has two. There are currently two SATA cables going
from SATA0 and SATA1 on the motherboard to 0 and 1 on the backplane.
The working disks are in the upper-left bay and the one directly below
that. The non-working disks are in the upper-right bay and the one
below it. How do we get the two new disks working?

Add-in a four-port SATA HBA and cable it over to the unused backplane slots?

Yeah... I hadn't realized that SATA was a one-to-one thing. A new card
is on the way...
