I was wondering if it is possible to run mSATA and two SATA disks on APU 1d. So i soldered an second SATA port on my APU along with 4 capacitors missing, and gues what, IT WORKS!. Now i have an mSATA SSD and two SATA disks connected, all working just fine under Debian.

Below is a picture of my build.
So my question to PC Engines is why do You say it is not possible and You sell the board without second SATA port soldered?
