PC won't boot into OS with the OS installed on SSD connected to the motherboard
Steps taken, but have been unsuccessful?
check the bios.
I have 3 hard drives connected to my PC, but if I try to boot into the OS with the OS installed on SSD only without the other 2 hard drives, my PC refused to boot into Windows until I plug in other 2 hard drives which is a typical hard disk drive not SSD. My SSD has AHCI mode enable as well. The Sata cable that connected with the OS installed on SSD plugged into Sata cable 1 port on my motherboard. So if my two hard disk drives die, I won't be able to boot into the OS with the OS installed on SSD. Please help guys. I don't know what to do.

Yes, but by 350MB. You can follow the steps from the article above. Please backup important data if you are unfamiliar with partitioning.

Note : It's a lot easier and safer to manipulate partitions from outside of Windows. I use Minitool Partition Wizard Boot CD, version 9.

I can't type any number on Resize Partition tab, and I get the error at the end. Help please?

There is a lesson to be learned here. When you install a operating system, only attach ONE DRIVE.

Then when you are all done installing the OS, attach the other drives, as they are probably for data anyway.

I believe I did that and that's how my Hard Drive Number 2 got the OS system partition drive in it.

SamTingWong, when you install an operating system, don't attach any extra drives, only your main SSD, I hope this translates better for you?
