    Have you already tried to wipe the HDD in your caddy clean? No partitions, nothing! Then insert the caddy with the clean HDD and enter BIOS to see what it detects. Finally if all is detected correctly, boot into Windows.
    Yes, I have done that. It still gets stuck at bootloader.

    See if you can open the BIOS using F10.
    What are the settings?
    Legacy
    UEFI Native
    UEFI Hybrid
    (with or without CSM)

    Open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste:

    Code:
    bcdedit /enum
    bcedit | find "osdevice"
    diskpart
    list disk
    list volume
    select disk 0
    detail disk
    list partition
    select partition 1
    detail partition
    select partition 2
    detail partition
    select partition 3
    detail partition
    select partition 4
    detail partition
    select disk 1
    detail disk
    list partition
    exit
    When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread
    Attached a text file, please have a look.

    1) For BSOD crashes there are Windows settings that can be modified.
    2) In step #10 above another method is to type control in the left lower corner > open control panel > system and security > system > on the left pane click on advanced system settings >
    a) under startup and recovery > click settings > post an image of the startup and recovery window into the thread
    b) under performance > lick settings > on the performance options window click on the advanced tab > under virtual memory click change > post an image into the thread

    3) For Ccleaner uncheck:
    a) Memory Dumps
    b) Windows log files

    4) Chkdsk D: ok CT500MX500SSD1
    5) If possible please run chkdsk /r /v and HD Tune on the second drive

    I can run chkdsk and HD Tune on the second drive only if I plug into an external HDD case, not via caddy. Is that ok?

    Just to let you know.

    1. Windows is installed on my SSD (Crucial MX500) (Disk 0)
    2. 320GB HITACHI HDD is inside my caddy. Detects and works fine. (Disk 1)
    3. 1TB TOSHIBA HDD is in an external case. Detects fine on external case but not on caddy. Will get stuck at bootloader. (Disk 2).

    1) For startup and recovery system failure:
    a) uncheck automatically restart
    b) reboot

    With automatic restart checked it is easy to miss BSOD.
    The default windows setting is automatically restart checked.
    With automatic restart unchecked you should see a BSOD windows with bugcheck and : (
    At times you may see a misbehaving driver in the form *.sys
    At the very beginning of a bsod crash you may see a % counter.
    If you see the % counter allow it to rise to 100% before rebooting so that there is sufficient time to create the dump file.


    2) For Minitool partition wizard the information for disk 3 appears to be cut off.
    If possible please repost the above image.

    3) For the drive testing (HD Tune and chkdsk) these can be done via the HD enclosure.
    When running the chkdsk command use the syntax: chkdsk /x /r /v C: or chkdsk /x /r /v D: changing the drive letter to the applicable drive.

    4) When possible please post the results of the administrative command prompt commands for disk 1 and disk 2

    There was a typo in the diskpark commands.
    Please copy and paste and rerun these commands with corrected typo:

    Code:
    diskpart
    list disk
    list volume
    select disk 1
    detail disk
    list partition
    select partition 1
    detail partition
    select partition 2
    detail partition
    select partition 3
    detail partition
    select partition 4
    detail partition
    select disk 2
    detail disk
    list partition
    select partition 1
    detail partition
    select partition 2
    detail partition
    select partition 3
    detail partition
    select partition 4
    detail partition
    exit
    reagentc /info
    When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread

    Diskpart displayed many partitions as RAW.
    When available please repost Minitool displaying partitions on disk 3 with the other disks.
