    Everything is running as smooth as butter, so though I really appreciate you pointing out the boot manager location issue, I’m wondering what the benefit would be of moving it. If likely to cause a problem I will absolutely move it.
    With the boot manager in one drive and the OS on another, you need the two drives to be able to boot.
    If you follow the instructions I gave above, you will install the boot manage on the same OS drive. It will take 5 minutes. Up to you.

    Disk 3 is merely a flash drive. This is odd as I 100% removed both the power and sata cables from the 2tb drive. The 500gb drive was the only one showing in bios.

    If I had the ssd drive it would be slotted into the motherboard and its not there.

    Ideally you want the boot on the same drive as C: which is on Disk 2. That way you should be able to boot with only that drive in the computer. With the boot on Disk 0 you will probably not be able to boot if you remove it for any reason.

    I found out the hard way when I cloned my old hard drive with C: onto an SSD. The SSD wouldn't boot because the the boot was dependent upon some other drive that I had removed. Apparently in my case the boot wasn't on the hard drive I cloned.

    There is no problem with keeping your computer the way it is but understand why somebody suggested you change things and understand the repercussions in the future of keeping it the way it is.

    No, it won't boot faster.
    It's only to correct something that isn't right.
