Hello sir, I'm using acer aspure 5740 and i replaced my CD drive with HDD. I'm using SSD as my booting drive. When i turn laptop ON, it stays blank with Acer logo and also not enter Setup. When i remove second drive HDD, it enters OS and Setup. When i plug my HDD after entering OS , it works well. Kindly give me the solution.

SSD was already set as 1st boot device. How can i disable second hard drive? The only way to enter setup is unplug second drive.
