[Bug] Loss of internal HDDs and sticking at loading

Loss of internal HDDs and sticking at loading
C-300 running firmware 05-01-120118-23-POP-420-000 and
NMT apps: 05-01-111007-23-POP-420
System occasionally loses one or all the internal hard drives.
This happens after rebooting and can occur intermittently.
I have a 2.5" Toshiba 1tb Sata HDD and a 3.5" 3tb Hitachi Sata HDD installed. The 2.5 drive has the NMT apps installed and was formatted as EXT3 by the C-300.
The 3.5" drive is for media storage and is formatted as NTFS.
If the system loses the NMT HDD it sticks at Loading on a reboot.
This may be a hardware or wiring problem.
There are two internal Sata connections. If you us the permanent Sata cable with the one piece connector whatever drive is connected runs OK.
If you use the Sata cable included in the accessory pack and remove the ROM cable so you can use the other power connector that drive has the intermittent problem.

are you sure the nmt drive is not dying, dropping out and sticking out boot sounds like its running fsck on it

Both drives have no errors.
Please check my original post as I added theses edits.
