New hard disk - Grub always boots into emergency mode

I attached a new SATA hard disk. Since then, Grub always entered into emergency mode. If I detach the hard disk, Fedora boots without problems. When I logged in and then attach the new disk again, I can access the disk.

My setup is the following:

  • one SSD containing the OS and grub
  • one hard drive containing /home/
  • the new hard disk

BIOS detects the disks correctly and the boot priority is also correct. Grub is even listing all OS correctly.

Can you tell me how that happens and what I might do? Thanks in advance!

Booting Windows 10 via Grub works fine.
