Your current OS is on disk 1 as well.

disk 1=SSD as you told me. So what's the problem?

OK... that would explain some of it.
Except the fact that I chose the other disc off of the boot list and, until I did that, the computer wouldn't start up - instead, the recovery utility tried to fix something, failed, and shut the machine down.
The drive letters are the ones I assigned, yes, and they haven't changed.
I'm not sure what to make of that situation.
Does it make sense to you?

You're right. It's now booting. From that disc.

Problem... well, if not solved, at least - vanished.

Time for a comprehensive back-up and test of this system.
How bizarre.

If you have any advice or guesses, I'd appreciate them.
If not, thanks for your time and help.

Does lenova recovery environment work? I mean does it start from SSD? If you don't know how to test... disconnect hdd temoprary.
Assuming all is working fine: Now it's time to delete partitions on HDD because you put the files on SSD. Recreate one or more partitions on HDD (not active partitions!)

What is on SYSTEM_DRV partition on SSD?
