Hi everyone, I hope someone can help with this issue I can't seem to resolve it myself.

I have just installed my fourth hard drive. When I try to fire up the desktop it gets to the "Loading Operating System..." screen and it never ends up loading.

Upon disconnecting any of the other drives it seems to load just fine. My motherboard allows for 5 Sata III drives.

Anyone have any ideas on this? I would appreciate any insight.

Here is some more info on the desktop:

Mobo: Gigabyte H55M-UD2H
Processor: Intel i5
Ram: Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 (2x4GB)
Hard drives: (1) 500gb Seagate 3gb/s, (1 well 2 now with new one) 3TB Western Digital 6gb/s, (1) 1TB Seagate 3gb/s
Operating System: Windows 7 64bit

I'll provide other details if needed.

Thanks in advance

Durrp. Fixed it, for whatever reason it shuffled my boot order.
