In any case, these drives are floating around, and with at least one company's 
firmware (of unknown affected models) it causes a hang when trying to boot 
Windows. If the CSM-BIOS method is used to install Linux, I'd expect that to 
hang as well when such a drive is attached. I think it's reasonable to expect 
more strange behaviors as a result of these drives.
