I am sure that is a result of the BIOS settings for the particular Host controller.
can you tell me which controllers you have
I have found that some controllers are easier to setup than others, and even more so I have found the supplied drivers do not always work properly and can be very easy to mix up when in the windows install option menu tryng to select the correct one to install for Raid operation.
As far as the SSD goes - I found some case it was easier to configure a single Sata drive as IDE when trying to Boot off it (in the BIOS menu) which could be the same controller used for the CD, DVD ROM drives. I don;t think it has much if any impact on performance it more for compatibility.
