The Berks motherboard is supplied to the HP 795 series. The stock configuration includes the following.
1) M.2 socket 3 SSD
2) if a DVD drive is installed, the Main SATA power cable (an 8 pin socket on the motherboard ) has 2 connectors on the cable, a SATA hard drive, and power plug for the DVD drive.
3) Near the bottom portion of the motherboard is the secondary SATA power header. It has no cable attached.
4) All hard drives utilize 4 HP Blue Isolation screws. You must have these odd screws.
Just look inside your unit.😁

Thanks for your help. Drives installed; connected data cables.
Power cables another matter. There is a 6 pin male labelled "SATA Power" on the motherboard close to the data cable outlets.
Do I use this to connect?

Sata data cables no problem, but power cable for additional 1 T drives is the issue.
There is a 6 pin plug in on the MB labeled " SATA POWER", one I had doesn't work.
Neither BIOS nor W10 Disk management sees the added drives.
BTW, there appears to be no way the added drives can be slid into their slots same side up as the original 1T drive. I had to slide the in "upside down".
