2nd HDD Ultrabay drive detected in BIOS but NOT in Windows/File Explorer

I have the Lenovo Ideapad Y410p
I upgraded/installed to DDR3 16GB Memory,
Samsung 850 EVO 500GB 2.5" SATA III SSD as the main drive,
1TB HDD SATA II HDD via Ultrabay for storage
9 cell 7800mAh battery
With Windows 10 Pro x64

 

I installed the SSD as main and HDD in ultrabay,using SATA WIRE 3.0 to copy HDD drive to SSD. Everything worked great... SSD & HDD show up.
See attached Screenshots.


OK, so I take out the HDD ultrabay so I can run some benchmarks on the SSD, then when I put the Ultrabay with the 1TB HDD back in and it won't show up in Windows??? Took it out and put it back in 3 times now and no joy... it worked the first time I booted up both the SSD & Ultrabay drives... you can see that in my screenshots I posted.
Any ideas what happened?

Adding to my post above, when I went into BIOS setup, the HDD shows up there. So why isn't it showing up in File exploer with the SSD?

Re: 2nd HDD Ultrabay drive detected in BIOS but NOT in Windows/File Explorer

I'm still very surprised that no one has experience the problem I had or a solution to it... anyways, here is how I fixed it.

 

The HDD in the ultrabay was booting fine when it was the main HD. And it showed up the first time I put it in the ultrabay. Then when I took it out for some benchmarks, it wouldn't show up again in File Explorer, Device Manager or Disk Management (only in BIOS) when I put it back in ultrabay until I disabled USB booting in BIOS. I looked all over the web for a solution with no joy, then finally figured it out when looking in BIOS. Go figure.
