When I reinstalled my windows to my SSD, I go and try to plug in my old HDD as well but it blue screens on the Windows Starting screen every time..

The only way I can get it to start up is if the SSD is the only drive plugged in, and yes i'm selecting to boot from the SSD when I have both drives in.

Would I be able to buy a Sata to USB coord or something to acess and reformat my HDD while windows is runninng?

I dont know what else to do, I dont have any info on the HDD and as far as I know it's completely empty aside from a partition maybe.

I also tried booting in safe mode while both drives were plugged in and same deal, blue screen on windows startup.

do you have a friend that could lend you a external usb box something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


What is one of those? Do you just put the HDD in and it hooks up with the USB coord? Does it feed the hDD power as well?

I have no idea why my computer wont boot if I have my HDD hooked up through SATA, considering I'm selecting the SSD as the boot drive.

you put the hdd in then start your system after put the usb plug in your case then plug the power cord for that box and press on /off button you should see your drive on the computer (serve as a external case for hdd drive )
