Stuck at Windows loading screen caused by HDD

ItsK

My PC started getting stuck one day at the Windows loading screen, so I started testing parts to see what was at fault, and it turns out it was a 1TB HDD that when connected, my PC freezes at the Windows 7 and Windows 10 loading screen. I've even tried it on a separate computer and it does the same thing on there. The drive is purely used for storage of shadow played videos. Yes the boot priorities are in order so that isn't what's at fault either. Any suggestions?

I've had this happen to me. The drive is likely failing or already failed, unfortunately. Windows will eventually boot (takes forever) or you can attempt to "hot plug" the drive while the system is running. Many people don't recommend this, but I've done it a bunch of times without an issue, just don't move the drive once it's running and you'll set.
