I had Windows 10 installed on my SSD. After that I decided to install Ubuntu on a Dual-Boot so I can have a Linux also. I installed de GRUB on the SSD with Windows 10 and the Ubuntu system on another disk. /dev/sda --> Boot GRUB with options to boot Windows or Ubuntu /dev/sdb /dev/sdb1 --> Windows partition to storage DATA /dev/sdb2 --> Windows partition to storage PROGRAMS /dev/sdb3 --> Linux partition

When I shutdown the PC from windows, and try to boot again the system I get to a black screen like this one: Black screen

I checked and the UUID shown on the image is the one of the second disk (HDD) where is the linux system and both partitions of DATA and PROGRAMS for windows.

While I'm in this screen, I tried some solutions that I found around internet but I got nothing. When I run the command "ls" in the grub rescue, I get only partitions on HD0, which is the SSD I think. After I press CTRL+ALT+SUPR I get to the grub menu, and I can boot normally.

Can someone help me to solve the black screen process? Why does GRUB doesn't see the HDD while booting?
