If it were me, you don't. I avoid doing this because it's a pain in the
ass thanks to the Linux kernel's broken device enumeration mechanism.
Instead, boot from a vanilla SATA disk on a vanilla SATA port set to be
the first BIOS boot device. Optionally, mirror the boot volume with
mdadm and set the two devices as first and second BIOS boot devices.
