So I get an error message whenever I start my computer (image attached). To bypass this I have to press f11 and start with my hard drive (which is damaged and incredibly slow). I am replacing this hard drive soon and I want to make it so that my computer actually starts through my ssd instead of having to use the current loophole which utilised the damaged hard drive I'm replacing. How do I get rid of this and get my computer to start normally.

OS: Windows10. In the past CP/M, DOS, Windows 95, 2000, 98SE, ME, Vista & Windows 7

My System

Bios>Boot>Change Device

The stability of an OS is in direct proportion to the stability of the user.

OS: Windows 10 64 bit

My System

As stated, boot into Setup (Bios) Go t the Boot tab, Move the SSD to the First Boot Device and the HDD to the lowest position or not in the boot order at all.
Or you could just unplug your HDD until you replace it.
