    I'm experiencing a weird issue with my computer. I have two SSDs Samsung 850 and Samsung 860. Each of them contain a linux OS (Arch and OpenSuse). Whenever I want to boot one I just go in the BIOS and choose which drive to boot.
    After the OS fully loads it freezes and I can't do anything until i shut the machine down. Now, if I disconnect the other SSD the OS works OK. I don't see why it would do this. This also happens vice-versa.

    What could be causing this?
