    BSOD machine_check_exception when attaching a secondary drive


    Hi guys,
    I just built a new PC:


    MSI X99A Sli Plus
    PSU Cooler Master V550
    5820K
    DDR4 32GB
    Nvidia Quadro K2200
    Samsung SM951 256 GB M.2 boot drive


    I installed Windows 10 PRO, and played with it for some hours with no problems.
    I also run Intel XTU to stress it and all is good.


    Now I want to connect the hard drives from my old PC but I have this problem: after a few minutes into windows or even at boot, the PC freezes with machine_check_exception blue screen - no numeric code at all.
    I tried to connect an old WD 1TB disk, an old Maxtor 1TB disk and also with a brand new Samsung 850 EVO 1TB, these drives connected to different SATA ports each time.
    When I detach all the drives apart of course the boot drive, the PC will start normally.


    Later I tried to connect the new SSD (one SSD is M.2 boot disk, the other is SATA data disk) and I got into Windows, had the time to format the SSD data disk but then on the next boot I got the same problem.


    Could it be some UEFI settings????


    Heeeeelp!!!!


    Thank you!
    Matt

    Thank you!

    ********** update: it seems I didn't upload the file correctly! Now I've done it.


    I uploaded the zip file.

    Before I created it, I cleaned all previous logs, then connected an hard drive, booted, bitlocker logon, then PC freezing (this time without machine_check_exception.
    It froze when it was about to show the desktop.
    So I had to shut down, disconnect the hard drive, boot and go to windows.
    Then I created the zip file.

    Please check {windows partition}\windows\minidump and check if there are any dump files saved.
    The zip is empty of dump files.

    Thank you for the suggestion but one hour ago I think I figured out what was the problem.
    In my mobo's UEFI (MSI X99A SLI PLUS) I had to disable "fast boot" and before booting into Windows 10, after attaching the drives, I had to enter UEFI at least once so that the mobo would see them.
    Now I've done about 5 or 6 reboots just to check and things are ok so far.
