[SOLVED] Plugging in SSD unrecognises all HDD's and doesn't boot.

I bought an Inland M.2 1TB SSD to upgrade my mom's 2016-era Microcenter Powerspec PC from windows 7 to windows 10. I was initially going to connect via a M.2-PCI-e x4 adapter, but then I realized my PCIe slot is actually an x1 slot. So I got a M.2-SATA adapter , and want to connect it like a regular SATA SSD. I have an optical drive and toshiba HDD connected currently to the SATA ports.

MOBO: AsRock H110M-HDV
CPU: Intel Core i5-6500 quad core 3.20 GHz
OS: Windows 7 64 bit
HDD: Toshiba DT01ACA200 2TB 7200 RPM
VGA: Gigabyte Nvidia GeForce GT 1030
PSU: 400W


Yet when I plug in the SSD SATA cable, suddenly the motherboard BIOS does not see anything in the SATA ports and wont boot. I updated the BIOS to most recent version, and reset to default settings to no avail. I unplug SSD SATA cable and everything boots fine. I have 2 SATA modules with 2 SATA ports, so I have 4 total SATA ports and it seems to only work when I use the top port from each module for my SATA and Optical.

Is there a fix or should I return the M.2 SSD/Adapter and get a regular SATA SSD?
