Secondary SSD not detected unless using Windows Boot Manager

I have currently 3 drives (internal) and 1 external via USB. I recently changed OS from one SSD to my new 840 evo. That leaves 1 HDD and 1 SSD for storage. My storage SSD does not get detected unless I boot my 840 evo via BIOS (and choose the windows boot version).

If I don't do that, my OCZ storage SSD does not get detected in 'My Computer' nor 'Disk management'. But sometimes though it does appear when I just turn on my computer (but sometimes doesn't) fail-safe way for it to be detected is to boot 840 evo via bios and choosing the windows boot version

  1. Is the Samsung 840 Evo being plugged into the first SATA port, this is especially important for the BIOS to know which one is first. If you can't figure out which one is first, try to boot up with 2 drives and change 840 Evo to every SATA port until something different happens.
