I operated with C as disk 1 and an HDD as disc 0 for years and never had a problem.
But I have heard it can cause problems in certain circumstances.
It's up to you, but I would start all over and get it right.
Disconnect the HDD, boot from the Windows disc, and delete all partitions from the SSD when you come to the partition screen. Look for "drive options, advanced" in the lower right portion of the screen. Take that choice and delete all partitions. Then continue reinstalling Windows.
Don't connect the HDD until all is well with Windows on disc 1 on the SSD.
I'm not sure why it is doing this.
You might take a look in the BIOS right now to confirm that it sees things in the same way shown in Disk Management---SSD as disc 1; HDD as disc 0.
