Added a hard drive to my pc and my ssd can’t boot windows

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello I recently installed a hardrive in my pc. I have a 500gb ssd that contains my windows. After installing the new hardrive my ssd will not boot into windows I get a black screen. I have since unplugged the hardrive from my pc and only have the ssd but windows still will not boot. 
 

note I do not know if the hardrive had any previous data on it I thought I’d just erase it

did you try manually selecting or changing the boot drive in your BIOS


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

As far as I’m aware mechanical drives are hot pluggable NOT HOT UNPLUGGABLE

so if you can get into Windows then plug it in to power it might detect into windows but you should read up on the hot pluggable thing.
