Second SSD causing boot issues.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a Crucial M4 SSD that I use as a boot drive and a second M4, pulled from an unused laptop, that I would like to use as extra space for a couple games and maybe my Adobe software (both SSD's only 64 gigs). But whenever I have the second ssd installed it get bootmgr is missing errors but when i remove it everything is fine. Ive tried reformatting and installing the os on the primary with no other drives plugged in but i still get the bootmgr error. The only thing I can think of is that there is a conflict between the two drives, maybe my pc is trying to boot from the secondary drive with no windows install? Anyone have any ideas on how I could get this working?



if needed:
Mobo: Asus p8z68-v Gen3
CPU: I5-2500k OC'd to 4.5ghz
GPU: Gigabyte Gtx670
OS SSD: Crucial M4 64gb
Secondary SSD: Crucial M4 64gb
PSU: Coolermaster Silent Pro 850w


Thanks in advance.

You will need to go into your bios and change it so it uses your original m4 as the boot drive.

Also, since you have already formated your main drive you may as well used both of the m4's in raid 0 to get better performance and 128GB of space on what windows would see as 1 drive.

Ive heard people mention Raid 0 but never knew that was something you could do. One of those things I just never looked into for some reason. But that definitely sounds like the way to go. Ill do some research sometime this week and get that figured out. Also did what you said a forced it to boot to the main drive (took some trial and error as they both showed up with the exact same name) but so far so good. Thanks, and thanks for the suggestion about using the ssd's in tandem. Ill get that figured out on my days off.

the proformance boost is minimal, when raiding 2 ssd together. IMO, only real reason to raid 2 ssd's together is to have 1 large drive instead of 2 small ones.
