Hi homberger , 


Welcome to the Community Forums.


As you have tested that the same harddrive works and that a known good harddrive also shuts down the machine, it can be suspected that probale issue with the internal hdd port or circuit may be triggering auto shutdown by the CPU to prevent damage . Booting to via USB show that it would work fine so having the machine further checked by on the board level may be needed. 


Initially turning off and removing the battery, followed by pressing the power button to drain flea power and re testing it may be done but best option is to have it checked internally.


Hope this helps answer your query.
