Is that even possible?
Make sure the cable connections are snug. It could also be a bad sata cable.

For post below, bad hard drive or bad connection to motherboard can freeze Windows boot. It happened to me.

Just started the computer with only the SSD and suspect 2Tb... before I even get to the point where I can access the BIOS, I get something that says the 2Tb SMART health is BAD, reccomend replace.

Could this be the cause of all my problems?

Turns out it was a bad hard drive. Remove suspect drive and everything's hunky-dory.

Apart from losing 600Gb of sensitive data. *sigh*

Thanks guys.

Reps given.

Wow...
trouble shooting a computer problem is sometimes more tedious than performing self-surgery on an open wound...

Something dies and the very last thing you wind up checking is the item responsible...

Pull the drive, does it POST?
