I think I have your disk schema in my head, but ....

I'm going to recommend a Clean install, mainly because it is superior to an upgrade. But also because it's faser and easier for both of us.
A perfect install requires some planning - All of the information is in the tutorial
1) backup your personal data
2) gather your license keys for 3rd party programs that you purchased
Belarc Advisor is what I use
3) Remove all devices that did not come with the machine
If the machine came with 2 HDDs, disconnect the 2nd one
- Only have the one drive you'll install Win10 on connected
4) When you boot the Win10 install media (USB or DVD)
Press Shift+F10 to launch Command
Launch Diskpart and enter the following commands
sel dis 0
Do a Custom install to the currently raw drive
Let Windows Update do it's job - you might want to run it manually
Make an image of the Clean system
Install your favorite programs
--Download new install pkgs if available.
Update the UWP Apps thru the MS store
Check for any flagged devices in Device Manager - visit the OEM for the driver
Make an Image of your Base System
Do your customization
Make a 3rd image if you want.
Now your machine is squeaky clean and you have good images.
What about the 2nd HDD? Your call ... it's a clone of Win??
If it's your previous OS, then let it remain unconnected and serve as a backup.
If it's a clone of Win10 ... well not anymore it isn't. I do not recommend cloning - Macrium Reflect Free images are what I suggest instead and you already made a few images. So that drive can be cleaned, formatted and returned to service as a Data Drive
What about the USB drive?
Now that you Clean installed, see if the problem still exists. If it does, then scrap the 128 MB Reserved part on the USB drive, reboot and see how it operates.
You can try it backwards, testign a boot between each
Disk 2 (USB): scrap the 128 MB
Disk 1 (HDD): clean & format
Disk 0 (SSD)
scrap the Part 1 and 2 on Disk 0
Create a System Reserved part size=500 MB
Fix the boot
Those are very terse instructions - somethigns to think about
I take great caution when I manage my machine ... helping members in a forum doesn't allow for but I thought you meant errors.
Don't take any action without conferring with members on this side of your monitor.
