Wonder if some one could help me with this one because its a odd one, every time I remove my second SSD drive I cant boot up my PC. I will not stop getting BSOD's.. And this really confuses me because all I use that hard drive for is backing up my media, there is nothing tied to my OS drive within it. 

 

Any thoughts guys ?

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
 
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
 
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

There is something written on the second drive that the OS needs.  I had the same trouble but with a regular HD, not an SSD.  When I connected the second drive, the first time, the OS (WINXP) it wrote something to the drive before it could be seen and then asked to format the drive.  When I removed the second drive, which had music and videos on it to take to an event and I wanted to use it as an external for a laptop, the PC wouldn't get past the BIOS, hung up looking for the second drive.
