    installed windows on ssd and would not logon after update


    I recently wanted to swap 2 hard disks to larger ones, ssd, with operating system, to a larger one, and a regular hdd to a larger one as well.
    I disconnected all other hard drives, not to run into any surprises, and installed windows 10 on the new ssd, all went great, installed other software. Restarted the computer, everything worked great. And super-fast.
    I connected my hard disks, copied over from the old hd to the new, and left only the new ones connected, restarted the computer, and here is where I ran into a problem
    The computer would start for a split second, fans would light up, start for a split second, and boom, everything would shut down.
    I googled, and what I found was, check the memory, clean the box physically, reconnect all cables, change etc… for almost 2 hours, I was going through steps and steps to no avail.
    I found sites that said the motherboard went, power supply, I already gave up.
    For some odd reason, I said to myself, let's try connecting the original ssd and see what happens, and Walla, it started up, as it had for the past 2 years.
    I swapped back the new ssd, and same problem, wouldn’t startup, I put in the new hdd, and even though it didn’t startup, I did get to the boot options.
    I put back the original ssd, and the new hdd, and it loaded up.
    I connected the new ssd, as an external, and was able to see everything there, proving the new ssd was okay.
    It seems, something happened when I was updating windows ten, and it might have put some of the booting files on the hdd, I cannot explain it.

    At the moment I have a new ssd on the shelf, and the new hdd, are connected running great.

    I figured I will post here just in case somebody runs into the same problem, and before they go out buying a new computer …..
    Posted here, since you guys really helped me in the past.
    Thanks
