adding new 2nd ssd to the system makes it fail to boot

Dear All,

so i have ga-z97-ud3h and toshiba 128 gb ssd (windows 10) + 512 hdd for games and pics. Just bought samsung 850 evo 500 gb , installed it, turned on PC and its failed to boot windows 10 (0xc000000f).
see the pic : https://pp.vk.me/c623421/v623421435/540f7/eBjSzpGMvw4.jpg

i checked the bios it says AHCI mode. i decided to switch onto IDE but failed to boot also. But after i manually turned off new empty samsung evo 850 and switched back to AHCI windows 10 booted easily as always before. btw bios is detecting samsung evo. whats wrong with booting?
booted sequence was ssd (windows)->hdd->samsung evo (empty new)

sorry for my bad english

    yes
  3. umm...i would try boot the system up without the evo. then connect the evo when the system is booted up. if the system sees the evo in my computer or windows disk utilities, reformat the evo. then try do a restart, see it that solve the issue.
