SATA drive

I've tried PCLinuxOs 2007 and Ubuntu and the both give me the same error.

The Master IDE HD has XP, I installed a second IDE disk and installed Ubuntu. However, I have a third Sata disk where I store all my music, pics, etc.  I realized that because of the SATA disk I get the Grub Error 17 at stage 1.5.

When I boot from Live Cd, it recognizes all three disks, I can even navigate through them. The thing is that when I boot normally it gives me "Grub Error 17". If I unplug the Sata disk it won't give me any errors, besides the Bios that did not find any disk on the SATA port.  It displays the options to boot either from my first HD (WinXP) or my second HD (Ubuntu) but the Sata disk has to be unplugged in order for the Grub to boot correctly, and obviously the disk won't be available on any of the OS.

This error happens before the grub menu shows and of course I never get the menu, I restart the machine and same thing happens.
