    Added 2 new 250 gig SSDs - now System won't start (boot)


    Hi guys...had a very similar issue that was fixed previously but I'm not sure how I fixed it can not boot with extra hdds connected ? - Windows 10 Forums

    Was fixed and running fine...now I have added 2 250gig SSDs...and I have the same issues again....if one or both of the new SSDs are attached...system freezes at bios boot screen....if I unplug the two SSD power lines...then bingo...system starts

    In case this is related...I'm attaching two jpg's of my drive system...Windows and EaseUS Partition drive schematics...looks weird to me but don't know much about drives/partitions etc...except there's questions when I look at this...

    Please take a look at the jpgs and tell me if anything in these is causing my system to freeze with the new SSD's attached ??

    Note: freeze is at bios screen - press delete or F2 to enter Bios....

    Thanks...TiminAz

    Which SATA ports did you connect the drives to? What is the make and model number of your motherboard and is it running the latest BIOS?

    LMAO...I couldn't help laugh at that.....but I came to the same conclusion.

    Are the system specs listed in "my computer" for the problematic PC?

    Not sure will check that tonight...read somewhere that that might be an issue(sata port assingments)...however since the 2 new SSD's are empty...didn't think that would be an issue...will post back tomorrow...thanks for your help...

    It is not that bad. Eeasus shows minor 1MB alignment partitions that Windows does nit bother. All OP has to do is delete 847 mb partition right of c drive and expand c drive and it will be as it shoould be.

    The reason I asked for the board model number is, there are two SATA controllers on the motherboard. The first six gray SATA ports are the AMD controller and these are the SATA ports you should be using for your new drives. If you connected them to the black JMicron controller, it may prevent the PC from booting properly.
