I've 2 hard drive in my Asus A45V laptop:

  1. 240GB SSD (for OS)
  2. 500GB HDD (for personal data)

I placed my SSD in HDD slot, and replaced DVD RW with HDD (using caddy).

So here's how my problem showed up:

  1. My SSD have two paritions, I have Windows 10 installed in the first partition.
  2. I turned off windows fast startup.
  3. Then I installed Ubuntu in second parition. Dualboot worked fine using grub as bootloader.
  4. I turned on windows fast startup again
  5. Now my laptop can't boot, it stuck in Asus logo and I can't enter BIOS using any key. It's completely stuck.

And here's what I've done so far:

  1. I removed SSD and reboot. Didn't work.
  2. I placed again my SSD, removed my HDD and reboot. It works.
  3. I removed Ubuntu and grub. Then placed my HDD again, the problem still exists.
  4. Removed my HDD, boot windows via bootable USB and doing startup repair, Windows said it can't do a startup repair.
  5. Delete hyberfil.sys from my HDD, didn't work.
  6. Replaced my HDD with my friend's HDD. It works fine.
  7. Put my HDD into USB dock (making it external HDD) and plug it in USB port, works fine.

So I think it's the problem with my HDD but i don't know what the problem is.

Additional info:

  1. Before I have SSD which is just 3 days ago, my Windows 10 is installed in my HDD. I moved it in SSD using mini tool partition > Migrate Os to SSD.
  2. Before I have SSD, I enabled paging file for C: and D:.
  3. After I moved Windows to SSD, I merged C and D partition on my HDD.
  4. There's a silver sticky paper, alumunium foil like that 'protecting' my HDD, the SSD seller moved it on the new SSD.
  5. Boot mode is UEFI with legacy support enabled.

UPDATE So i've tried command given by @Hannu and this is the results:

EDIT I fixed this by reformatting my HDD

  • @Hannu sorry but I've said that I've removed Ubuntu – Risal Fajar Amiyardi Dec 25 '18 at 8:20
  • Boot the Ubuntu install media in "try it"-mode and run it from there. and now I believe sudo fdisk -l gives better and relevant info, skip lsblk. – Hannu Dec 25 '18 at 8:22
  • @Hannu okay I'll try it later. Still got deadlines to catch. I'll comment again and post the result. – Risal Fajar Amiyardi Dec 25 '18 at 8:31
  • ok. Others may chime in as they see the output from fdisk. – Hannu Dec 25 '18 at 8:33
  • @Hannu I've updated my post, please check it – Risal Fajar Amiyardi Dec 25 '18 at 9:02
