Hard drive Mixed with Solid State Drive issues?
Hey guy's I'm new to the forum.And I'm hoping someone can help me with my question.First let me show my new build and explain problem I'm having.

M.B - MSI P67A-GD55, CPU - I2500k with stock cooler.(Why) Because Cooler master Hyper 212+ Covered the first 2 ram Slots.Even touching the already tall ram., Memory - 4GB G-Skill rip-Jaw, Case - Coolermaster HAF-22, XFX -Radeon 6870 Black Edition I MB, 500 GB Seagate HD, 120 GB Intel 320 Solid Stae Drive, Silverstone 750 Watt Power Supply, 2 Lite-ON DVD-RW's.

This is a great system.Everything works very well.I initially only had the 500 MB Seagate HD. I then wanted to speed things up a bit with the Intel 120 GB Solid State Drive (SSD). Well It works at least the (SSD)works after I changed the Bios To the AHCI mode for the SSD to Work.And work it does .very well, Boot time aroun 18 to 19 seconds.Shutdown around 5 seconds.I can see my Seagate 500 GB and use (Sort OF) I have a bootup choice for both drives but if the Seagate is chosen it blue screers.I like to be able to have the choice to run either one independant of the other.I don't even know if this is possible.If someone has any answer please let me know.Thanks

RE: Hard drive Mixed with Solid State Drive issues?
Let me get this clear: You want to be able to boot from both drives?

It's possible if you have two different installation of Windows (or Linux), one on each drive, but you can't have the same installation on both drives.

Your seagate drives most likely crashes due to the change to AHCI after the OS installation.
