Hey guys, I've run into some issues here. I just installed windows 8 the other day and started running into some issues where my computer wouldn't boot. So today i sat down and installed linux and reformatted my SSD and reinstalled windows 8 with my 2 other HDD's (500gb and 1TB seagate barracuda 7200 rpm) not connected. Now when i go to connect the two HDD's windows 8 won't boot. It goes to the windows 8 screen and just stays there. I've made sure that it's booting from my SSD and all of that. I've also tried booting it from the disk and that won't work. The windows 8 screen stays up and then the screen goes blank. Now the funny thing is that when just my SSD is plugged in it will boot just fine.... I'm lost please help

Ok, upon startup of your PC, go into the BIOS settings.
Select the way the computer boots and make sure your SSD is number 1 and has priority over the other drives.
