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. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer 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. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
