It sounds to me that when you have the HDD installed to the system that it is booting off of that drive and not the SSD. You need to go into your bios with both of the drives on and set the boot order for the two so that the SSD is first and not the HDD.
Also have you tried connecting your HDD to another port?
One more thing you could try.
Connect everything. Shut down your computer, disconnect it from the power cable, and now take out your CMOS battery (it looks like a watch battery) on the motherboard. Leave it out for about 15 minutes. Put it back in, and power up your system. Check your BIOS also to make sure AHCI is set.
