    I recently installed a second hard drive into my 2010 MBP 15" so I could use both an SSD for OS files and an HD for bulkier files. I had Windows installed on my 500gb HDD before installing the SSD, and it was working fine. However, after moving the SSD into the main hard drive bay and the HDD into the optical drive bay, windows no longer boots; it just sits there with an endless blinking white cursor. I've tried booting from rEFIt, etc, but nothing is working. Has anyone encountered this and is there anything I can do short of reinstalling windows completely? I'm running Lion BTW. Here's my partition scheme if it helps:

    Boot into OSX from your SSD. Go to System Preferences > Startup Disk and select Windows Bootcamp and click restart. That should resolve your problems.
