SSDs cause restarts

Pavilion 590-p0044
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am trying to upgrade the hard drive that is in this system.  I have tried to add a msata and a sata SSD with the same results.  I have tried both as a secondary drive and a primary drive setup.  Windows installs fine and gets through setup fine but once in Windows it crashes/restarts.  If I plug the original hard drive back in by itself it works fine.  Is there a BIOS setting I need to change?  Is there anything else I can try as the BIOS is up to date also.

@YeahToast,

What size are these msata and a sata SSD devices?  The original HD is 1TB.

How did you "create" the install?

Please close this thread.  It ended up being Windows update grabbing the wrong drivers as soon as the PC was booted.  I had to pull the machine off the network initially and updated the AMD drivers first before butting the PC back on the network.

My boot is one of the SSD's and I've not had any restart issue at all. Question, did you use the connection and cabling from the CD/DVD drive? If not, I would do that first and go USB on the dvd. Then split that to run the 2 additional HDD's. There's plenty of pwr. in the 300 W supplied supply to run them all.
