Windows 10 wont start if I remove one of my ssds (not the one where windows is installed)

Hello,

Please, let me explain, I have two ssds one of them have windows 10 and the other win 8.1.

I just want to use windows 10 as always, but if I remove the ssd with win 8.1, my PC dont even detect the ssd with windows 10.

It's like I'm trying to start my PC without any ssd or hdd.

This also happens with me changing the boot priority in the BIOS to make the ssd with win 10 the first one.

Maybe my main partition is in the ssd with win 8.1 ?

What should I do ???

    When you installed the Win 10 OS, did you have the other SSD connected?
    Probably.

    In which case, the boot info resides on the second SSD.

    Possible fix:
    Disconnect the second SSD
    Boot from your Win 10 install USB
    Run the Repair function.
