2nd HD Windows Start Error No Bootable Drive Found? SSD + HDD Both with OS

HP Recommended
Zbook 15 G3
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


I have a computer with an original HDD which windows loggs into fine. Win10

I purchased a M.2 SSD and have installed windows on this and have been useing it for some time. The install was clean and outside of the original HD information.

When I remove the original HDD the computer does not find a bootable drive. I am certain all the windows informations is on each disk seperately. I get an option to dual boot when both are connected.

SSD is detected in BIOS

Unsure in legacy is supported enabled or disabled but didnt seem to make a difference. There is a possibility i didnt enter the correct sequence of digits at promt to enable legacy but that prompt screen has not come back again.

Is there a way to make this SSD work without the original HDD? Would i need to copy over a partition or certain file without disruptiing my SSD user specs?
