No, its completely normal.

Just make sure to plug your HDD in the SATA slots: 3, 4, 5 or 6.

It is basically saying, when the M.2 slot on your motherboard is populated (the M.2 SSD is plugged into the motherboard) one of the SATA slots (where you plug your HDD or 2.5" SSD is plugged into via SATA cable) will not be able to be used. it normally happens to SATA slots 1 & 2. If the motherboard doesn't recognise the HDD's, try using a different SATA slot.

Okay thank you I would like to also move my OS to that SSD is it possible?

I personally have no experience with that, but I believe you can't move your OS from one drive to another. I may be wrong, so its best for you to ask on this forum for someone who knows if its possible, or do a quick google search.

to clarify, what are you moving the OS from? another computer? this computer?

also, am curious why you have 2 SSDs and 2 HDDs for this build?

well I’m looking to edit videos on my computer and I’ve filled my smaller ssd already and my two hard drives to hold data I just wanted to be sure if I could

thunder-93 1 point 2 months ago

and the OS you want to move, is it on the Kingston SSD already, and you want to move it to the Samsung SSD?
