I recently received my HC4 and I was very excited to get Armbian / OMV up and running on it. I cleared the SPI to boot straight to SD, got my OS configured, and realized that only one drive was showing up in OMV.
I am attempting to use 2x brand new WD Red Plus 6TB (WD60EZFX). I've read through some other forum posts (notably, this screenshot looks eerily similar to mine...), but nothing seems to exactly match my issue.
The second bay (furthest from the power jack) in my HC4 will not detect either of my drives. I tried swapping the drives, but the OS will still not detect it. I've tried a handful of different OS images - I started off with Armbian Focal, but I've also tried the official Ubuntu images, Armbian Hirsute, Armbian Focal trunk, and other kernel images on the original Focal install, but the issue remains. Booting with one drive out, and a drive in the "bad" bay, dmesg gives a hint:
Code: Select all

I've also attached a full dmesg. Currently running Armbian 21.08 buster legacy 4.9.275.
Attaching either drive to the bay nearest to the power jack causes them to be recognized properly, but nothing ever appears if attached to the other bay.
Fingers crossed it's just a driver issue, not a bad board or disk firmware incompatibility.
Thanks in advance!
