Title.

My pc has been booting straight to bios recently and I thought it was probably because my pc wasn't using one of my storage devices. Turns out they both work but only one can be used at a a time(?). Both work fine but only one can be recognised and used at a time. Whenever I use one, my pc tells me to plug in the other one and when I only use the other it says 'undoing changes made to your pc' and then goes straight to BIOS.

I'm desperate for some help. Anyone?

It seems it recognises them but doesn't want to use both at the same time.

A faulty GPU shouldn't do that...although it could.

Download a program called CrystalDiskInfo:

Have both drives plugged in, run a check, if crystal disk finds both drives then it may be a windows issue. If not then it could be a variety of faulty hardware ranging from a bad MOBO to psu hdd power cables.

Oh and I guess this should be said too in case its a "oh duuuh" moment.
You can only boot using 1 Drive, you can access the other drive via file explorer but you can't boot both devices at once.
Host drive + the Mass storage drive is how most people use 2 drives. 1 is typically an SSD for Windows while the other is a
large HDD for games and programs.
