Unable to automount favourite encrypted non-system partition

Hi.
I have 2 hard drives in my computer : 1 for the system (SSD, Windows 8.1) and 1 for data (HDD).
I have encrypted both of them, and now I'd like to automount the HDD just after having mounted the SSD.
Both hard drives have the same password.

This article looked promising, but it does not work: after opening my session, veracrypt asks me again the password to mount the HDD.

Furthermore, I need the HDD to be mounted as soon as possible, because the "Desktop" folder is stored on it so if that path is not accessible at the opening of the session, Windows displays an error.

Any ideas?

Thank you in advance :)

The article you referenced is meant to mount the volumes when you logon (enter password) for Windows and not the bootloader.

You need to use System Favorites. See the link below.

FYI: Be aware that if the "data" partition is unable to mount, you may be unable to boot Windows. Someone on the forums was having this problem because they moved the user profile from the C drive to another encrypted drive.
