    TheBull,
    You need to click on the far left side of the graphic and select properties to get the Volumes tab.

    Thanks. I now know that my SSHD is GPT and all other partitions are MBR. I tried deleting the volume but have no option to create a new volume as a MBR. So any help regarding that would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't want to mislead you on this so you'd be better off to wait for someone more proficient in this area. My guess would be that the disk will have to be re-formatted to create it as MBR.

    As I said, wait for someone with more knowledge.

    Thanks cato, but I already tried that too. Doesn't work.

    Well I managed to convert the SSHD to 'MBR' so all my disks are now 'MBR' but that did not solve the problem. Still the same.

    Whatever your disk with C: drive is/was, Is what all drives and partitions should be.
    Another words, you need to any new disks to the partitioning Windows is using.
    ***this is for use as an 2nd internal drive, external drives don't matter as long as they are turned off during boot***

    You can see looking at the picture I posted above. Every partition and disk is MBR, but no difference.

    And your BIOS is set to boot MBR also?
    It must be, if you can boot at all into Windows. hmmmm???
    Is your boot order set correctly?

    Yes it boots into Windows, just takes very long. And the moment I remove the SSHD drive it boots immediately. Boot sequence is correct.
