L520 second HDD not detected by BIOS, why?

Hi everybody


   It appears Schalli and I have same problem: a second hard drive (inserted in an aftermarket caddy) is not detected by BIOS. So you can not boot from 2nd hard drive.


   But, if you start the OS (Windows or Linux or even DOS!), the second HDD is seen and works perfectly (no connection issues, full speed etc).


   I tried several HDD, also SSD. Also tried removing internal HDD, leaving only HDD in the caddy.


BIOS is 1.20.


Can other users please verify?


Lenovo: why is this? Why doesn't BIOS detect the second hard drive?

Same with my machine. So I put my SSD into the original drive bay and moved my HD to my caddy.
