Original Config – Lenevo Z410 Intel Core i5, 6gb DDR3, 1TB HDD
I have replaced the original HDD with 256gb Kingston SSD and have placed the HDD in optical drive bay using HDD caddy sourced from the local market. (similar to https://amzn.com/B0058AH2US )
When both SSD and HDD are connected, the laptop boots for 1 second and then powers off. I will not power on even if I hit the power button. Only after resetting the CMOS jumper the laptop boot again. (the same problem everytime)
The laptop works fine when only SSD or HDD is connected.
[I was once able to boot up with both drives and it worked fine but then the laptop shut down after some time]
Please let me know what the problem could be ?

Hey danparkar did you manage to get this fixed?
I have the same issue on Z50-70 with either the new SSD or the old HDD installed it boot just fine but whenever I try to boot with the caddy on it won't even boot into the bios from the side switch. Does this have to do with the fact that I changed OS to Linux and the BIOS "hardcoding" the windows license?
Any help will be appreciated.
