Windows won't boot due to the secondary SSD and HDD

I had installed windows on a ssd a problem caused in which I couldn't boot windows, so I forced to install windows on my secondary hdd after a clean installalltion every time I boot it seems stuck in loading screen before windows start up ,if I unplug my SSD it's seems to boot up I switched cable it didn't seems to work , i have a another a HDD even it seems to cause the same problem. I prioritize the HDD on bios it didn't solve the problem . The system only boots if only one HDD which i had installed my os is connected to the sata0 otherwise it won't boot .some help would be nice sorry for the crappy English , it's not my native language .

16gb ddr4 ram

More about windows boot due secondary ssd hdd
  1. Install Windows with only the main boot drive connected to the system. SSD if it is not bad. See if that boots OK. If it does, shut off system, plug in second drive to the second SATA port, see if it boots then.

  2. try SSD alone before boot load Bios default settings save exit .hope it helps.

  3. Tried that it didn't recognise the HDD as before . Is there any driver should I install after a clean install of windows to make system recognise the HDD ?

    If it can see the boot drive, it should see any other drive attached to the same SATA port area. Only time you may run into an issue with drivers if there was a secondary SATA controller added. So system boots with the boot drive, then you plug in one of the second drives, and you don't see the other drive in My Computer? Does it come up in the BIOS? Or in Disk Manager?
