ode saturn questions

Hello guys, sorry for the bad English, this is a translator)) The question is: do SAROO and SATIATOR work without a disk drive? i tried to remove the drive and start the Saturn, but it did not boot and the sound was distorted, with disk drive boots and the sound is normal.
Because these motherboards use SH-1 CPU IC101 or IC36
(motherboard models include: VA0-VA5, VA8, Va9)

The motherboard with IC37 chip can run normally without cd-rom drive.
(motherboard models include VA6, VA7, VA10, VA11, VA13, VA15)
