    Hello guys!

    I've had Boot Camp running Windows 8 in my Macbook Pro Mid-2012.

    This week I upgraded it with a 240 GB SSD and put the original HD in the optical bay. When I turn my macbook on with Option key hold, I can choose to boot to my previous Windows 8 boot camp, but it always gets stuck in a black screen with cursor blinking.

    I've been searching for a workaround to make Windows boot for the past days, but no success. Some people say Windows will never boot on the second HD bay, some people say it will, I'm confused.

    Is there a way to make Windows 8 boot from second bay (it is already installed)?

    Thank you!
