So I just upgraded from an i5-8400 to a Ryzen 5 3600x as my CPU or mobo went bust and i was waiting to swap to AMD anyways, I got an ASUS B450M-A motherboard and all was working fine, I can boot into windows and access the BIOS when I only have my boot m.2 (970 Evo 500GB), however I tried to plug my 1TB barracuda drive and I get stuck on a screen with the ASUS logo and text that says "Please press DEL or F2 to enter UEFU BIOS setting" and when I press either of the keys, nothing happens. When I then unplug the HDD it boots fine again. The bulk drive is definitely working because I had it working before and I just rebooted my pc and this has happened. Before, to fix it I turned on the "AMI Native NVMe Driver Support" and it booted with both drives. Now, even with this option enabled, it does not work.

Specs:
ASUS Prime B450M-A
AMD Ryzen 5 3600x
Zotac 1060
2x8GB Corsair Vengeance @3000mHz
Samsung 970 Evo 500GB
Seagate Barracuda 1TB
