I cannot boot into windows with any disk other than 3tb disk 0
If I try to add my other hdd's it will not boot. You still want screen of the one disk?

A screenshot of 3tb would be good, but it would be better to boot free Partition Wizard
bootable CD to take a camera snap of the full drive map and listings with all drives attached.

Did you set SATA controller in BIOS to AHCI? What are the CSM or Legacy BIOS settings? Try each CSM setting to see if this resolves the problem?

Were the other drives previously or currently OS drives? If so had they been wiped of boot code which prevents them from being able to interfere?

This could also be a hardware issue having to do with the SATA ports being used, and in which order. I'd try rearranging them.

The other drives are and have always been storage only. I use the pc for a media server and have 4 1tb drives with movies and pictures. I will try the partition wizard. Yes set to ahci. I will get screens asap. I am currently doing another fresh install on main drive. Once I get that finished I will try to upload all the screens I have.
I really appreciate your help

Once again. . Do a fresh install with only the 3tb drive installed,
Windows loads fine. Shutdown and fry to add other drives and poof no boot. I attached 2 shots of what I get after installing drives

Again, we need the Partition Wizard boot CD screenshot showing full drive map and all drive listings expanded.

Is it possible the addition of other drives is changing the BIOS boot order? Check in BIOS setup after attaching each.

This seems a logical explanation since a single drive blocking boot might point to code needing wiped, but all of them sounds more like the boot order is being changed to another drive that cannot boot.

It could also pertain to the CSM or other UEFI settings so we need to see the BIOS setup screenshots that were requested earlier. If you have errors uploading them then you need to tell us what they are so we can get them done, rather than just ignoring the step and expecting us to continue with multiple steps ignored.

Here are shots of bios. I have to reload windows again. And download partition wizard so I can get shots of drives. I don't see how they could have any boot info as they have always been used only for storage.

Mate, how many times Greg asked for the "Partition Wizard" screen shots ?. That is necessary to understand the partition structure of your main drive as well as slave drives.

I understand, and I will get those asap. I had to take a break from it as it has consumed my life the last 3 days lol. I downloaded the bootable iso? I assume that will be the one I need once all drives are connected.
