Blue screen when adding ssd

So I recently received my brothers old ssd that he cleared and gave me. It’s is a 120gb Kingston. My problem is when I add the ssd I get a blue screen with a recovery message. Error Code: 0xc0000225 I am connecting this ssd using a shared power SATA power cable that has 4 heads on it. I currently have 2 1TB HDDs on separate power saga cables. Do I need to run this ssd on its own individual power cable? I didn’t think so and if not I’m not sure why this problem happens. ( Have tried connecting it to either power sata cable, both resulting in a blue screen)

Windows 10
ASRock mobo
Gtx 960
I7-4790k
8gb DDR3

  1. Is the SSD on a port lower than the bootable HDD? Based on this http://www.errorlive.com/error-code-0xc0000225 it looks like the system may be booting from the SSD.

  2. The ssd is on a higher port number through the motherboard sata, but on the power sata it comes before the HDDs. I would see this being an issue if the ssd was on port 0 on th motherboard but it isn’t.

  3. Does the system boot from the HDD or the SSD?

  4. Does the system boot from the HDD or the SSD? Do you have the issue if you use the BIOS boot menu to manually select the boot HDD?

    The number or order of SATA port or power cable has nothing to do with boot priority. The booting priority is solely set by the BIOS/UEFI.
    The error code 0xc0000225 means Windows cannot find the System Files used for booting.
    I guess the SSD contains a boot sector, or an old OS? Manually boot a windows recovery from BIOS/UEFI and go to repair console to completely wipe the SSD.
    Type:

    diskpart

    list disk

    select disk x
    (x is number of desired drive to wipe)

    detail disk
    (to be sure correct drive is selected, you can tell it by the size)

    clean
    (deletes partition information, cleans disk, is completely safe for SSDs, and of course HDDs)

    exit

    Then try to boot again. If you did it, go to disk management, make the SSD MBR or GPT (as you like) and make a new partition on it.

    My interpretation of is that he can't boot when the SSD is connected.

  7. Yes, whenever I add the ssd I get a blue screen, cannot go into anything. Windows 10 is located on the HDD on port 0

  8. Somehow the system finds the SSD before the HDD. Manually select the HDD from the BIOS boot menu to load the OS.
