What do you mean by "acknowledge" ?
If you mean it cannot use them I am sure you are wrong.
There is always the possibility that a particular computer, such as yours, might have a special need that Linux does not provide.
One previous difficulty that could be overcome with WinPE was use with USB3
But that problem has been resolved for WinPE.
Linux may be another matter.
On my PC, the external HDDs didn't appear in the location list (I couldn't browse to a backup image).
I could only access HDDs that were locally installed or available via a network.
In that case, I simply used a Linux Live CD to copy the files from the external HDD to one of my other internal HDDs.
It only ever happened once (I haven't tried it since).
I have made two updated Recovery discs since that incident (and had at least 2 motherboard upgrades), so it may not be a problem
It may have been an earlier version of Macrium (v3?).
There may be a way to open a Terminal and manually mount them, but it isn't obvious to me.
