Preferred Solution: AHCI Not found in Bios

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,
I doubt it has it
I would imagine an old computer would have old legacy bios.

Why do you need it ahci ?

A:No devices found, AHCI BIOS not installed, blue screen issues and problems restarting

Do you have a single drive or multiple drives setup in a RAID configuration? The message you are seeing is fine (and normal) if you have no RAID. It usually will just pass it so quickly that you didn't notice it was there. How long have you let the pc set at that error message?

see second post.

I have a 3TB drive D: for data formatted with GPT.

Had BIOS OnChip SATA Type set as "RAID" "As SATA Type" from back in the day. When I took out the RAID, I forgot to change this to AHCI when I reformatted and got rid of RAID drives!

Changing to "AHCI" "As SATA Type" as shown in image in second post, causes Windows 7 x64 to lose / not see the GPT on my drive D: and it wants to "initialize" it as MBR or GPT-- no way!!

A:cloned C:, installed AHCI drivers, changed BIOS to AHCI, D:'s GPT gone

ok, returning to BIOS and setting back to RAID, as AHCI typeenabled me to view the drive D: again
C: drive seems to be running much more slowly again.
these drives are plugged into the OnChip SATAWith AHCI as SATA typeno drive D:

With RAID as SATA typehave drive D:
but C: definitely dog-tired-slow
I really should not have fiddled with this at 3AM on a Sunday morning!!! Bah, I'm a pro, what could go wrong???

I'm not sure why changing to AHCI causes windows to miss the GPT on the D: drive.
Can I back this GPT up and restore it? Detect it after changing to AHCI? this is my only large drive, I can't back up the entire fricking thing.

The other question this makes me ask is how do I keep my GPT when I move to another motherboard? I don't trust the GPT like I do MBR hm....

edit: changing back again, it does not seem any faster. Doing more reading, it's ok to leave it as RAID because AHCI functions are still available no? So I really shouldn't gain/lose any performance?

I bought a brand new SSD, installed it in Windows 7, and there is no option in my BIOS for the SATA controller (to switch between IDE and AHCI Mode). How do I determine whether my computer's sata controller is using IDE or AHCI?

I want to make sure that my AHCI controller is enabled and not IDE when using TRIM.

If anyone can look at the picture below and determine whether my computer is default in IDE or AHCI, then I will mark this as Solved.

Thanks.

What is the proper way to set them?

Hello.


Just be advised if you change the settings at all you may lose access to all the data, especially the RAID, if you're not very aware what you are doing then it's best left as is.



The tutorial linked below will give you some of the basics, but you have been warned.

I understand that if I wanted to get a SSD (such as the Vertex 2), I would need to enable AHCI in the BIOS.

However, I have pullout chasses in my PC which allow me to swap in and out about 7 different hard drives that I use for various data storage. I also have one hard drive which is an XP boot and another which is a Windows 7 boot. I am currently using plain old SATA in the BIOS.

Can anyone please explain what effect turning on AHCI would have to my system? Would I still be able to access the data disks? Would I still be able to boot off the bootable disks?

Thanks!
 

A:AHCI in BIOS

It would be best to start the Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI) with a fresh install of Windows. All 3 of my drives are SATA and configured in a 1TB striped RAID. ACHI is automatically enabled when using a RAID array. The data on all your drives may disappear when they are connected when you enable ACHI

Hello to all, I found a 960 GB SSD with AHCI that boots fine with my X1 carbon 3rd Gen.It is pretty expensive, but AFAIK it's the only one in that size, that will work flawlessly with the 3rd Gen X1. It is a Kingston HyperX Predator 960GB and it was about 530 Euro. Comes with a PCIe adaptor and Acronis TrueImage 2014 backup/cloning software. https://geizhals.de/kingston-hyperx-predator-960gb-shpm2280p2h-960g-a1495637.html After switching the built in Samsung SM951 with the Kingston SSD, it was recognized immediately and I could install Windows 10 with no problem. Regards,Jochen

A:AHCI BIOS Not Installed

Look at this helpful Thread that relates a little to your issue.

http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic18329.html

Seem that error is the raid bios, according to that thread you need to go into Bios and find the SATA operation and turn it from "Raid Autodetect AHCI" to combination. At least that is what that thread says, I have no personal experience with this but if you are not using raid why leave it on to cause issues.

Hopefully that helps.

A:AHCI Bios Setup for SSD?

It is possible that the registry setting that you changed only supports the Microsoft AHCI drivers, not the Intel ones.

I don't know whether it'd be practical to uninstall the Intel drivers.

If all else fails, a re-install of Windows with the SATA controller set to AHCI in the BIOS should work fine. You should not need to install any third-party driver to install Windows on a drive that uses one of the Intel SATA ports.

A:No AHCI mode in BIOS?

Concealed10,
Welcome to SF. You will want to visit the Dell site to see if a newer bios version doesn't address this very issue. If it does then you will want to back up all data and research in the Dell manual the proper way to do a bios update as any false move can brick your rig. This isn't to say that it's not straight forward but you must adhere to the procedure.

A little while ago I noticed that my motherboard's BIOS was configured to use IDE instead of AHCI I don't know if I installed Windows while it was in IDE mode and didn't realize it or if the BIOS just switched it by itself can it do that I've BIOS Issues and AHCI read there's a way to switch it back to AHCI mode without requiring a reinstall by going into the registry and modifying the values for msahci and pciide before restarting and switching to AHCI That doesn't work for me though BIOS and AHCI Issues What ends up happening is that in the POST screen the motherboard will detect the DVD drive fine but when it tries to detect the hard drives it'll say something along the lines of quot Auto detecting SATA quot and then just stay there I don't know BIOS and AHCI Issues if it actually progresses after that since I didn't have the patience to wait but the point is that it shouldn't be taking that long It doesn't even boot into Windows My real question is this Is there something wrong with my motherboard My computer is getting a bit old years and I have noticed that the motherboard is taking longer to detect devices Before the computer would show the motherboard splash screen immediately but now it displays quot Loading ASUS Express Gate quot for a few seconds before doing so Afterwards it also tells me that it can't detect a hard disk for a split second before booting into Windows I think all of this started happening after I unplugged everything to clean out the computer I might've rearranged some SATA plugs too and then plugged everything back in If this isn't a problem with Windows is it possible that the motherboard's AHCI or SATA controllers failed Or maybe it's a problem with my hard drives' SATA controllers I can boot in IDE mode but not AHCI mode

A:BIOS and AHCI Issues

This is the tutorial for how to switch to AHCI if W7 was installed in IDE mode:
AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista

As for your boot problem, it sounds like the BIOS setting reverted to default and Asus ExpressGate was enabled afterward. The BIOS can reset if you removed the 3v battery from the motherboard, but it can also reset if you caused a short circuit while removing parts, even for a brief second.

You can disable ExpressGate in BIOS. That 'feature' will slow down boot time. Also enable 'Quick Boot' and disable 'Full Screen Logo'.

If you moved things around in the PCI slots it is always a good idea to perform a ClearCMOS (CLRTC) procedure afterward. This forces the system to re-recognize all devices and it resets the BIOS defaults too. It may also clear up any configuration errors that are delaying boot.
The procedure is in your motherboard manual, or ask here.

to get it faster. also the tests results show 250 when it was supposed to hit 520-540, and i think it's due to not having
AHCI mode, but i tried to change it in my BIOS, but i only have these 3 options:

- S-ATA (which is the one i'm using now)
- P-ATA

Isn't there any other way to change it to AHCI mode?

Hey All,

I'm purchasing a new SSD next week. I've been reading up on it and it looks like I need to enable AHCI in my BIOS. I can't find any option for AHCI though.

I currently have my System setup as RAID0. This was how it was set up in the factory and I haven't changed it.

The only option I have is under SATA operation and I can either set it to "RAID Autodetect/ATA" or "RAID ON".

Is there anyway I can check to see whether AHCI is already enabled? If not will one of the above options enable it?

A:How to Enable AHCI - No option in BIOS.

Some motherboards incorporate AHCI SATA automatically. In the early days of SATA there was a lot of confusion in terminology. "RAID" - "AHCI" - all the same thing.

For your motherboard it looks like you want to choose "RAID Autodetect/ATA" to use a non-RAID setup with AHCI.

So I made a bit of a mistake... I threw windows 7 on my new SSD. without having AHCI mode already enabled.. well I found you could do a little registry edit and bam it works... not.. it caused my system to constantly restart until I went back to IDE mode. my mobo is a MSI 870 G45


Question...

Should I just reinstall windows in AHCI mode. I have not installed much at all except for drivers no biggie I'd like to stomp this early. but I'm worried about re-installing will just cause system to go back into rebooting like crazy.

I have an older Gigabyte mobo, still on SATA2. There were 3 settings in the mobo that deals with IDE vs AHCI, I changed them all to AHCI. I also notice in the BIOS where it says "IDE Master 0", my SSD isn't listed there, it just says None. When I rebooted, there was an additional post screen that says it's searching for AHCI devices, then it says it didn't find any. I installed windows 8 anyway and it worked. I used AS SSD benchmark to confirm that it is running AHCI and aligned properly. So, according to that, I'm running on AHCI, but everytime my computer boots up I still get that same message: searching for AHCI devices and not finding any. What's wrong here?

A:SSD seems to be running in AHCI but BIOS not detecting?

Same is happening with my MB (check my sig), it doesn't show in boot menu but it's there when choosing default boot drive. My guess is that they were not ready for SSDs at the time. I scared me first time I put SSD in, thought it was DOA. It does show properly when in IDE mode but that's not good for SSD.

I have tried everything, from trying to install AHCI drivers (didn't work) and trying to edit registry files (changing all AHCI group files' start values to 0). Nothing has worked.

I just upgraded an HDD to an SSD in a HP laptop. The BIOS does not show any SATA options at all. How can I figure out from within Windows 8.1 if AHCI is enabled?

Relevancy 55.47%

Hi all
It will mean a fresh CLEAN install of Windows I'm afraid but if you have decent SATA disks change the default setting in the BIOS from IDE to AHCI.

It really WILL improve system performance --one of my big bugbears on any discussion on performance is how the I/O subsytem (generally Disks) is forgotten - yet on most home computers the I/O subsystem is often the real cause of dreadful performance.

You'll have to do a windows CLEAN install as the system will BSOD if you just change the BIOS so you won't be able to run the installer from within Windows itself. (If you can you are very lucky).

It won't effect any Virtual machines you may have however (apart from improving disk performance).


Cheers

A:Change IDE to AHCI in BIOS - Much better performance

I went back and forth between AHCI being on and being off on my new box that I built in July. Honestly, with almost ever task I did and with any benchmarking tool, I didn't see any real performance gain with AHCI enabled.

Unfortuantely, with AHCI on, I do have about an 8 second delay on each boot as the storage controller initializes. And since I do boot daily, and it was costing me 8 seconds which I didn't pick back up elsewhere, I just run with AHCI disabled.

As far as I know BIOS update doesn't offer some additional options. Please check BIOS settings again. In advanced BIOS options there should be SATA option and there you can change between compatibility and AHCI mode.

Bud,

Your manual should explain the difference. Unless you are using a RAID configuration, and your Motherboard can handle it, select AHCI.

You may need to install its drivers.

I have an Apricorn SOLO-X2 with SSD drive as my boot drive (cloned from my IDE drive). The setup required setting AHCI mode in both Windows and BIOS. It works great.

But NOW I may have to re-install windows (due to problems unrelated to the drive). The official installation disk does not see the SSD.

I think I can pull the SSD from the SOLO adapter and connect it directly to the SATA cables and install from there, setting AHCI off in BIOS, then setting it back on again in BIOS & windows after the install.

BUT, I'd like to know if there's a better (less painful) way.

A:reinstall win7 from CD AFTER setting AHCI in BIOS

You most likely need the pre-install drivers. But I can't see such a link on Apricorn website. Perhaps you have a CD that came with it?

- Anyway you should be able to install Windows by removing the SOLO-X2 (and the SSD) and attaching the SSD to a SATA port.
- After the installation reinsert SOLO-X2 to PCIe port (keep SSD connected to SATA port).
- Log into Windows, drivers will install automatically.
- Shut down PC, put SSD in SOLO-X2
- During boot up, enter the BIOS of your computer and assign the SSD on the Velocity Solo as your boot device.

I installed the most recent version of Win 7 7229 on my vertex 60Gb V 1.3 SSD the other night and after the first reboot the bios stopped when trying to discover the drive which is on '0'. The bios is set to AHCI (as it has always been with previous builds). If I change it to IDE then the drive is recognised and things go smoothly from there although the drive transfer rate in windows experience has dropped from 7.3 to 6.8. I have reflashed my bios but still the problem remains. I've swapped the leads round on my HD's but it still hangs when it reaches the Vertex drive.

Can anyone shed any light on what might have happened

Are you referring to the Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI)? I have never heard of HCAI as an acrnoym in computer terms. If you want to change from a RAID (dynamic) to basic disk it will require formatting the drives.

See the following article for some information;

I wanted to be able to hot swap drives, on a Gigabyte GA-Z97-GAMING 3 M/B. Seems the Gigagbyte BIOS has 3 SATA MODE SELECTION options:
IDE, AHCI and RAID. It was set to RAID, which makes sense as the D drive is a pair of matched SATA III drives in a BIOS (software) RAID 1 pairing. C drive is an SSD with the OS on it. However this option doesn't seem to allow hot swapping, even though all drives are set in the BIOS with hot swapping enabled.
Setting the SATA MODE SELECTION parameter to AHCI doesn't allow booting, and I am afraid of enabling AHCI in the registry in case "something bad happens" to the RAID. What will happen if I both set AHCI in the BIOS and set the Win 7 64 bit registry for AHCI? Will the RAID1 Intel Rapid Storage Technology software RAID 1 pairing still work, and will I then have hot swappable drives? Thanks.

A:BIOS, RAID 1 and AHCI hot swappable drives question

Edit: Putting the edit in the beginning, but do read till the end please. You have a separate controller named Marvell? 88SE9172 chip, try setting this as AHCI in BIOS and attach the drives you want to hot-swap to GSATA3 ports 6-7(grey ports?), see if it works. Maybe you wont have to change to AHCI on your Intel chipset after all.

Hey, I have an older AMD Gigabyte board but things may be similar. I will share my experience.

First of all, in BIOS I have 3 different sets of options for IDE/RAID/AHCI. Namely, E-Sata ports (x2 SATAII), GSata (x2,SATAII) and OnChip SATA (this is the SB850 SATA ports,x6 SATAIII). E-Sata and GSata are both controlled by Jmicron chipset.

When I installed current OS a month ago on my new SSD, I installed with OnChip SATA mode set as RAID as I had 2x1TB BIOS raid0 and 2x640GB BIOS raid0 that I didn't want to break. The RAID option in theory is just a subset of AHCI and should have the same functionality. However, Samsung Magician program for the SSD had problems recognizing the SSD properly. So I had to change to AHCI.

You can definitely change the registry to load msahci(and IAStorV on intel?) on startup, it is just another driver to be loaded, OS will continue to use RAID drivers as long as BIOS is set to RAID. However, you will lose your BIOS raid once you switch to AHCI in BIOS, they will be back if you change back to RAID once again (just don't do anything to them in windows ). I backed up my data and set-up a new windows raid0 in disk management and it is working alright atm. So losing your BIOS software raid is not that much of a problem imho.

Now the interesting part is, although OnChip SATA ports are set for AHCI, non of the drives attached to these ports are hot-pluggable. They simply don't show in Safely Remove Hardware. Not that I want these show as removable mind you.

For hot-plug ability, I use E-Sata ports which are set to AHCI as well and had to install the corresponding JMicron drivers. The HD I use for backup purposes is connected to the PC with a SATA-to-ESata data cable and I have an adaptor that can supply 12V+5V 2Amps that has a molex ending, which in turn has a molex to sata power converter. I can hot-plug this disk and just use safely remove hardware like any usb stick/hdd. Now, this may not be what you are looking for, I just wanted to show you even though both chips are AHCI one of them doesn't list drives as hot-pluggable and the other one is.

The above setup is working alright for me so I have not looked into it further but there may be one other option that you can try. 2 weeks ago I had to work on a friend's laptop and his internal drive was showing as removable and I had to do a registry edit to mark it as internal. Perhaps the reverse can also be done?

My internal SATA device appears in Devices and Printers and in the - Microsoft Community

Also, keep in mind that when 2 drives are connected to the same power cable, if you hot-swap one drive it may kill the power to the other drive that is supposed to be keep working.

By the way, you didn't mention why you want hot-swap. Do you have some other drives for backup? You can't hot swap the OS or raid drives anyway.

Hopefully someone more knowledgable with your board will come along and answer proper.

Today I used the AMD CCC overdrive utility and found my processor clocked at 4 GHz from the standard 3.6 GHz...very unstable. I reset the BIOS to default and lost my SATA controller setting of AHCI. When I set the BIOS to AHCI windows crashes with "can't find device error".
The registry setting for msahci is still at the value zero.
The system was rock solid with a Samsung 840 EVO. Samsung Magician indicates it is unable to detect SATA interface details.

Hi everyone I've got a Latitude D820 and I really like it. I'm really interested in getting an SSD to put in this system but I have my doubts. I have been told that SSDs only really like being in ACHI mode but the D820 doesn't have this option in the BIOS. I've also been told that SSDs running in IDE compatibility mode will cause bluescreens and have slow performance.
I did some digging around and discovered that Dell have hidden this option from BIOS setup for the sake of saving time, answering costumer support calls regarding SATA operation and drivers.
So my question is, will Dell be able to release a new BIOS revision with this feature enabled? The D820 is still a capable and i would hate to see it crippled in this way.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
George.

The answer is that this system is long since end of life - it will not see any further BIOS updates.

A:W540 SATA Option (RAID or AHCI) gone after BIOS up...

Did you order your system as RAID model?  W540 does not come with RAID by default.  Lenovo has to license RAID option ROM (costs $) so it is only provided if you order RAID model from Lenovo.  As far I as I know, the only RAID model in Europe is 20BG001Sxx.  And your 20BG001Cxx model came with only 1 disk.  If I am wrong about this, please let me know.
 
I believe there was a bug in 1.05 that mistakenly enabled RAID on some non-RAID models.  The bug was fixed in 2.05, so unless you really have a RAID model W540, then RAID would become properly disabled on your system.

I get the following message ' this computer is not supported"? The current installed bios version is 1.5 , date 7/5/2007

This error message appears if you want to update a BIOS which is not compatible with your notebook model.
Toshiba European driver page provides the 2.10Win BIOS for this notebook model.
So you used definitely wrong BIOS.

> there's no response when pressing the ''FN' key and one of the f number keys
Common modules controls the FN buttons.
So the issue should be solved installing Common Modules v 6.06.00, Utilities 4.30.15
Note; You have to press FN + 1, 2, 3 etc? DON?T press FN + F1 etc?.

Firstly be sure that AHCI is enabled in BIOS!!!
Furthermore the Intel Storage Manager controls the AHCI so you should slipstream the AHCI driver to the Win XP CD as described here:

The last two times I started up the computer, it started up MUCH SLOWER than before. It took forever to get through the Dell splash screen. It used to take 10 seconds to get through it, but now it takes more like three to five minutes. After I get past the flash screen, it flashed "AHCI BIOS not installed"

This is the first time I've seen it, and I haven't touched the inside of the computer or changed any settings. The only thing I've done is upgraded to Windows 7 Professional.

Does anyone know how to get this to go away? I hardly shut down my computer now so I can avoid the extremely long startup process.

This keeps on going continuously until I shut it down. I've read suggestions on forums to run chkdsk but I can't get as far as the Advanced Boot Menu; I can get to the setup and regular boot menu and when I boot from my hard drive the computer restarts.

Any suggestions?

I partitioned my hard drive a week ago and installed Ubuntu on it. However, I think the error is due to my update today.

AHCI is an advanced controller interface for sata drives and it
is usually a setting for the raid controller.
If you are not using it,might want to disable it in the bios setup.
If you are using it,I can try to find the registry hack that enables
it in windows without reinstalling,but you still need to see if you
can disable it and get into windows first.
Set it to sata or ide,whichever is available.
Not raid or ahci.

A:Switching BIOS SATA RAID/AHCI setting causes BSOD at Windows Start

This is a hard one. As I'm sure you know, there should be no difference (to Windows) for RAID vs AHCI. It is normally the same driver, and the same registry setting.

So here is my WAG: maybe you need to have all 3 hard drives connected to break the RAID and change to AHCI.

Once completed, you would then remove the extra drive. Hopefully you have not formatted or changed that drive at all.

Hi.

I have the GA-EX58-Extreme Board and have just installed the pre release of Win7 7600 64 bit. Normally i have experience to get the BSOD when in staling with AHCI active in bios so i change to IDE mode. Installation went flawless and also the change to AHCI mode on Intel ICH10R controler went normal. As always i got problem to change the J micron controller to AHCI and of cause i got the BSOD again. I installed the latest R1.17.48.16 driver and tryed again but no luck. Can some tell me what i am doing wrong. ? I have a hardisk and a dvd drive attached to the J micron Sata connection.

A:Intel Sata controler ICH10R AHCI + Jmicron AHCI error

You may not be doing anything wrong...or at least, you're doing the same wrong thing that I am. I've never been able to get that jMicron deleted to work in AHCI mode.

So, I hang the optical drive and the port for the e-SATA connection to the external backup drive off it and run it in IDE mode.

Relevancy 49.45%

After installing an SSD, I found that the motherboard was set to use IDE emulation mode instead of native SATA (aka AHCI). Upon switching over to AHCI, however, I just get an error message right off the bat saying "Active Partition not Found!".

I'm using Windows 7 SP1 on a Lenovo Motherboard with an AMD southbridge (BIOS is up to date). Before anyone asks - there are no blue screens of death, just the error. And yes, I did doublecheck that the "msahci" option was enabled in the regsitry.

Anyone know what might be causing this or how to fix it?

Dear Experts, 
I am unable to find 'ATA' option in dell optiplex 3040mt. Hence could not deploy Windows 2008 server image on it. In dell 3020 i can deploy the image using ATA mode. Please advise how to enable 'ATA' option in Optiplex 3040 and install windows 2008 server.Thanks!

A:Dell Optiplex 3040 MT - In BIOS there is No option to select 'ATA' for SATA Operation!!! (Unable to deploy Windows 2008 Server Image in AHCI Mode)

Jesse There is no such option in 3040 because ATA mode is no longer supported.  The F6 drivers are REQUIRED for windows 7 or 8 or 10.   XP/VISTA aren't supported at all and will not install.
AHCI is the only option available in Modern Bios and chipsets.  
INTEL RST F6 drivers are REQUIRED for all advanced format 4k sector hard drives. Most all drives

A:SATA DVD not found in BIOS but HDD is

i would first check if there are jumpers on the dvd drive (probably not as i dont think sata needs jumper settings).

If not, it is probably an issue in the bios, in the drive setup see what other options you have besides ide, also check that the secondry drive setting in the bios is set to auto and not disabled.

then post back

Hello all, after struggling for two months I have found a workaround to storage controller not seeing SATA HDD. First off I had to learn Linux. Ubuntu Studio 16.04 to be exact. THEN I got to using a small flash drive (FD). Upgraded to working with a 64 Gb SDXC card as my hard drive. I NEED my storage controller to work. I have replaced the Motherboard to SATA wire to no avail. HP Driver site is a joke unless I run Windows.... which incidentally got wiped when the HDD started acting glitchy and promptly failing altogether. Any suggestions to trouble shoot or get a linux driver or a way to use the AMD/ATI driver in ubuntu would be greatly appreciated.

Hi everyone :)

I'm currently working on a netbook and I've had a complete nightmare with it. Basically the owner didn't leave it plugged in whilst it was running Windows Update and it switched off thus corrupting the registry.

I have reinstalled Windows 7 on it and the owner has just contacted me to say she had to force a shut down (switched it off by holding the power button down) as she was installing Avast and it was just hanging / not responding. Now it's saying 'No Operating System Found'.

This is the third time I've reinstalled Windows on the netbook and this problem keeps arising, but the HDD is detected in the BIOS.

I've advised the owner that I think the hard drive is on it's way out but just wanted a second opinion before I go ahead and order a new HDD for her.

Thanks in advance :)

A:XC-600 hard drive not found by BIOS

Probably you deleted the EFI partition (if your BIOS is set to UEFI) or MBR partition (if your BIOS is set to Legacy/Launch CSM). when you installed windows 10 on the SSD, it read the EFI partition on the 1TB HDD and now that partition is gone. try to run startup repair under advanced options with the windows 10 installation media.
