This system previously ran Fedora 30. I swapped out 2 spin drives for a new spin drive and an SSD because one of the old drives developed a bad sector. A pair of M.2's are also in the system. All four old components were previously operating under Fedora 30. The only way I can get the system to install and boot now is to install only on the spin drive, leaving the M.2's and the SSD unutilized.

The only other info that seems relevant is that the new spin drive constantly get set up as sda, and the SSD as sdb each time I attempt an install trying to use both drives. I have tried installs with all possible combinations of storage components. 

Actual results: Can only install to new spin drive, and must select for each boot

Expected results: Successful installation

Additional info: Is this an Anaconda storage device detection issue?
