    2nd and 3rd hard drive aren't always powered?

    So I have a SSD as my main drive with w7 on it and everything so of course this is always powered.
    My problem is, is that when I click on another hard drive it takes about 10-20 seconds to open since it's loading...
    My guess is that the 2nd and 3rd hard drive aren't always being powered? How can I change it so they are? O.o

    Also while I'm here I'll ask this too:

    I have W7 installed on my SDD (main drive) and I also have W7 on my 2nd drive.
    I boot off of my ssd all the time but have it on the 2nd as a backup sort of thing.

    Okay here's the problem:
    When I turn on my PC the splash screen comes up and then after that a screen comes up asking what Windows I want to boot (both w7)
    This annoys me since the 1st option is Windows one the 2nd hard drive so if I'm not there, it'll automatically select that one..

    Is there anyway I can make my PC boot straight into windows on my ssd instead of me having to choose erry goddamn time?

    ​Go into your BIOS and change the default boot disk.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    Pretty sure I've done that before... But I'll do it again I guess


    Edit: Ahh, there was 3 boot options and I just had to disable the other 2

    If you go into Device Manager, then under DIsk Drives, right click on your HDD, then go Power Management and disable "Power off when not in use" or whatever it is. Should work.
