Windows 10 Windows stuck at Booting

#1
Hello, currently my Computer (wich is running Windows 10 on a SSD) is stuck at the loading screen. I guess it's my hard drive that is causing this. It is constantly working and working and I have no Idea why. It all worked perfectly fine until I started my PC today. I already booted the system with my hard drive unplugged and it worked perfectly. What should I do? All my Games, Pictures and Videos are installed on that hard drive? I also can't acess the boot options of Windows 10 (Pressing F8 or SHIFT doesn't work). Please help me. (Yes I am using a boot-wallpaper)

Has it worked perfectly with the same SSD or have you just replaced another disk drive with the current SSD?

Do you have a Linux live-CD/DVD? You can use one to try to access your SSD and save everything you have on it. Then we can continue to troubleshoot.

I unplugged my hard drive (HDD). That is the drive that is not working like it should. Windows is installed on my SSD. It also keeps running with the SATA cable not even connected.

Sadly I don't. And just in case you didn't understand ( I don't mean to be rude but I don't know a different way to say it). My SSD is working fine. All the data on it is perfectly fine. I can't acess/boot my HDD/with my HDD.

No problem, it was my misunderstanding.

Ok. Here is a video tutorial about how to use Linux :

As you can see in that video there should be a computer icon on your screen when you are running Linux mint, just double click that icon and you should also see the HDD (hopefully if it still works). You should prepare a Flash drive and connect it to your computer when you get to the main Linux Mint screen in order to save your files on it.
Let me know if you don't understand something!
