When I have 2 SATA disks attached to my board, and

The "empty" disk doesn't have MBR, so SeaBIOS doesn't stuck on it, it

But if I manually press "ESC" and choose correct disk in interactive promt,
system boots successfully.
Two logs attached to the message (with and without "ESC" interaction). I use
SeaBIOS (d7adf6044a4c772b497e97272adf97426b34a249) as a payload to coreboot.
That's a limitation of the BIOS design - only one drive can be
designated as "C:" and only that hard drive is bootable (without a
full reboot). So, there's no good way to attempt to boot from a
different hard drive should booting from the first hard drive fail.
You can change the default order of drives and thus change which drive
gets designated as "C:". See the bootorder file:
