Boot disk is connected to the motherboard.
4 Raid-z disks are connected to 2 SATA cards (si3124) in pci-e slots:
PCIEX1_1 (channel 0 and channel 1) and PCIEX1_2 (channel 0 and channel 1)

BIOS initializes PCIEX1_1 then PCIEX1_2 first, and on-board SATA last.
There is no way to change the order.

In BIOS disks are recognized as:
boot disk - SCSI-4

raidz disks - SCSI-0, SCSI-1, SCSI-2, SCSI-3

When raidz disks are inserted, GRUB stage2 load fails.

Loading operating system...
GRUB Loading stage2...

and that's all.

All possible combinations:
1. PCIEX1_1 ch 0 & ch 1 occupied
PCIEX1_2 ch 0 & ch 1 empty
Result: Boot succeed.

2. PCIEX1_1 ch 0 & ch 1 empty
PCIEX1_2 ch 0 & ch 1 occupied
Result: Boot succeed.

3. PCIEX1_1 ch 0 occupied, ch 1 empty
PCIEX1_2 ch 0 occupied, ch 1 empty
Result: GRUB stage2 load failure

4. PCIEX1_1 ch 0 empty, ch 1 occupied
PCIEX1_1 ch 0 empty, ch 1 occupied
Result: GRUB stage2 load failure

5. PCIEX1_1 ch 0 empty, ch 1 occupied
PCIEX1_1 ch 0 occupied, ch 1 empty
Result: GRUB load failure
Console output: Loading Operating System...
GRUB Loading stage2...
GRUB GRUB
6. PCIEX1_1 ch 0 occupied, ch 1 empty
PCIEX1_1 ch 0 empty, ch 1 occupied
Result: GRUB load failure
Console output: Loading Operating System...
GRUB Loading stage2...
GRUB

Boot order is set properly in BIOS
