At this point, would it be better to just wipe the m.2 drive and do a reinstall without HDD plugged in?

It's not using an SATA port would be my guess, it lists those first I guess.

I'm not familiar with them though so I could be wrong.

On boot it says HDD first then mSATA

AW18 bios A12 (UEFI + CSM)

I've heard that with win7 uefi+csm install, it's not recommended to store system reserve and C: in the same disk, why?

Well I guess he's lucky the m.2 ended up with C on it sort of ?
So yea start up repair after removing the 2 other disks should work

Windows 7 was developed well before uefi was and does not support secure boot
