    Windows 10 build with tangled HDD allocations

    Running Windows 10 pro V.1909 OS build 18363.657. The PC was home built using a M5A78L-M PLUS USB3 mother board that does not support UEFI. Drives are 256GB SSD, 1000GB HDD and 2000GB. The two HDDs are from from a previous win 7 system.
    As it stands now the system takes 2 minutes to boot and it does so off C:. I suspect it has to do with the way the dives are set up.
    See the attached screen shots.

    One thing I now realize is that I should not have deleted the win 7 OS from G:. How to fix the MBR?
    Why does D: show empty in file explorer (I did move all the data off it with cut/paste) yet This PC shows only 132MB free of 578?
    What is the significance of Disk 1 being GBT?
    I am hoping to have only the OS on the SSD in a single partition.
    Any help to climb out of this mess will be much appreciated.

    In addition the BIOS boot sequence is set to DVD, SSD and USB. It's amazing it boots at all!

    Yep. Your system is definitely a mess. It is booting from disk 2 partition 1 which is G: drive.
