The SATA drives won't comes with that option, the system himself select the primary drive where you install the OS and the other as 2nd drive.

If you fit the SATA drive in the port 0 (on some motherboards the port numbering stars with 1) it will become the first drive. However this does not matter as you can tell the operating system install disk which drive to install too and in the BIOS which drive to boot from.
