We build our own computers for our office and our most recent build will not run with a SSD.  It seems to work fine with a HDD.  We have tried two motherboards, different SSD's, different memory and different power supplies and can't figure out what is happening.  There is no blue screen of death, it just restarts as Windows 10 Home is loading or less than a minute after it is loaded. If we boot from the HDD, everything seems stable. BIOS will run fine with the SSD, it's just when we try to load Windows. 
Do SSD's require a different voltage than HDD?  Is there a way to change this in the BIOS? 
Asrock Z370 Killer SLI/AC (tried, not currently installed)

Mechanical HDD CGate 2 Tb (stable)
Power Supply: EVGA super nova 750B
Memory: 8 GB Gskill Rip Jaw x2

Check to make sure that RAID isn't enabled. SSDs can't run on RAID. Check this link for info on how to check. https://serverfault.com/questions/53368/how-to-check-if-hardware-raid-is-configured
