This is not a SATA/etc. controller; it appears to be an SD-card

This is also not a SATA controller; it appears to be a TPM or similar.

On my system, 'lspci -nnk | grep -A 2 SATA' reports:

00:1f.2 SATA controller [0106]: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family)
SATA AHCI Controller [8086:3a22]
        Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. P5Q Deluxe Motherboard [1043:82d4]
        Kernel driver in use: ahci

I.e., the SATA controllers are identified with the label "SATA
controller". I suspect that this will be true on most systems.

At a glance based on descriptions so far, it looks as if the UEFI is not
passing the existence of the hard drives on to the OS, for whatever reason.

Could you provide the full 'lspci -nnk' output, just in case there's a
detail that's not being noticed as relevant?
