Ive been working on a project laptop i have for a neighbor as a gift, but ive run into an issue, i bought a hardrive caddy off amazon for 10$, put a brand new WD caviar black 500g in it, and a 128gb kingston SSD as boot drive Now, onto the problem, the SSD works flawlessly, boots super quick (fresh install of win7) now.. when i remove the CD-Rom Drive from the laptop, and insert the HDD caddy with the WD caviar black in it, i dont even get fan spin... No lights, no Post, Nothing. I remove the caddy insert the CD rom drive, i get fan spin.. and boots to windows in like 20 seconds (if i put the boot mode to IDE i get BSOD, upon returning it to AHCI boots fine)

In short: i cant install a second HDD into an Asus x54c
