Windows 7: BSOD w/ cursor when SSD/HDD plugedin; Windows loads fine with just SSD

BSOD w/ cursor when SSD/HDD plugedin; Windows loads fine with just SSD

I have been searching the last couple days for the solution to my problem:

System will take ~10 minutes to load windows after post. Results in Black screen with cursor. This is with the SSD and HDD plugged in. I have Windows on the ssd and all my user info and programs on the HDD. I set my computer up using Sean's Optimization guide. I can plug my HDD into an external port and ready everything on my Mac. So I was able to pull my main files.
I only get the BSOD when both drives are plugged into my tower.

This started on Sunday when my system was doing multiple updates and a system back up and lost power.

Things I have tried:

reset explorer.exe in regedit
added TDRdelay in regedit
SFC /SCANNOW which only went to 16% and would not complete
And reset permissions
Tried a system restore, would get error 0x80070057
None successful
