@Vishnucs -- the SATA ports on your motherboard, either labelled as "0 or 1 or 2 or 3" or as "1 or 2 or 3 or 4" are assigned to unique addresses. Always, "3F0" is the first SATA port, and "3F2" is the third SATA port.
Which device do you have connected to the third SATA port?
You could "experiment": disconnect all the SATA cables from the motherboard.
Reconnect just one. Restart your computer. If you get the error-message, that one device is the problem.
If you do not get the error-message, shutdown. Disconnect the SATA cable. Connect some other SATA cable. Restart, and look for the error-message.
Repeat for your 3rd and 4th SATA cables, if they connect to any device.
