Weird one, aren’t they all!

Everything working fine then flashed the BIOS (to the same version it transpires!) and installed a pair of Xeon 5690’s.

Re-fit drives, I boot into Clover via a SATA SSD and have a SATA archive drive, both detected in the BIOS.

Clover then installs the NVMe driver and boots High Sierra off a PCI connected NVMe SSD.

I get into High Sierra fine but there are no SATA drives, just the NVMe. In System Properties there is no SATA interface now. I cant even see the drive with Clover on!

Any ideas?

For anyone with a similar issue, the BIOS refresh had reset to defaults and MacOS needs the SATA interface to be in AHCI mode rather than IDE mode - switched in the BIOS and SATA has re-appeared in System Report.
