Added SSD, now PC won't boot Tags: Hard Drives SSD Boot Corsair Force Storage Last response: November 13, 2011 6:55 PM in Storage Share BrunoNero November 13, 2011 3:07:53 PM I just bought a new Corsair Force 3 SSD as my existing one is getting pretty full. I plugged the drive in and switched on my pc but I am unable to get past the BIOS startup screen. I just unplugged the drive and rebooted and everything started up fine. Any clues as to what could be going on? Just to clarify, I have a SSD already with Windows 7 installed on it, this is not being used for the operating system.

This is just a quick fix though, you definitely want to also make sure boot device priority has your win7 SSD before your new SSD. | Report abuse BrunoNero November 13, 2011 6:55:04 PM I can't actually get into the BIOS to verify boot order. The screen says 'entering setup' but it freezes before it gets there. Incidentally, a couple of small spots and lines appear on the startup screen too - these aren't present when the new SSD is unplugged. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>Added SSD, now PC won't boot> Related ressources: ForumNew System won't boot when GTX650ti added ForumVery slow boot times after adding hard disc to system with SSD boot dr ForumWiped original HDD, now SSD won't boot ForumAdding up memory pc won't boot up ForumPC wont boot with added HDD ForumAdded HDD now IDE drives won't detect..
