You should keep in mind that two masters can ride a ship so you should make one a master and other the other a slave by setting jumpers on the drives.
this is a conflict so try and set jumpers on the drive that you want start first by master and second by slave.

one should take the resiponsibility of the master boot record which does the overall booting for both drives.
