Hello! I have 2xhdd: WD 1Tb 7200rpm sata/Seagate 500Gb 7200 sata, never had any troubles using them but today something odd happened. I installed Alan Wake AN (Steam) and when i clicked play it started the normal preinstalls as dx and etc and suddenly after that i heard my 2nd drive(seagate 500) kicking in and the pc rebooted, no hard reboots or etc just the normal windows way, after that i checked event log and nothing unusual. My win is up to date so i can't explain to myself. Those steam preinstalls don't require restart and never asked me for one.

Have you tried reinstalling to see if it reoccurs? Before you do that, go into the game properties (via steam) and have it do a file integrity check to make sure it downloaded properly.

Just did this but none of the preinstalls started. The game starts instantly.
