it may not be the motor... in fact if you picture an arm that would move back and forth over the disks... kinda like an old record player would... if this is damaged then it will click or thump... if it's the motor it will be more like a whine or hiss... back up the drive immediatly it won't last long.
it makes this noise durring the boot process because although it doesn't contain the os and it's not the master, the OS will still access the drive, for several reasons... 1 to see that it's there, 2. to check what's on it and 3. umm something... anyway, it's just kinda taking inventory at that point...
