As you have read in the title I can't boot into my computer with the hard drive plugged in. This is a new PC build and the computer boots fine without the hard drive plugged in. I thought this was a hardware malfunction so I returned the previous HD and recieved a new one but the same issue persists. If needed I can provide a parts list. I'm honestly unsure of how to proceed, any help would be greatly appreciated!

[SOLVED] It seems I had a faulty SATA cable. Rather unfortunate that I didn't try replacing it before
running other diagnostics.
