Hello and welcome to TSG!!

It would appear that Disk 1 (drives I:, J: and K:) is your SSD. Disk 2 is a 2TB(?) HDD comprised of drives C: and F:.

Have you got anything you wish to save? If not, remove the data and/or power cable to your HDD and install a fresh installation of Win10 on the SSD. During the installation, when you get to the point of selecting where to install, do a Custom install and delete the existing partitions first. Once Windows is installed and running, you can add the HDD back and remove the existing partitions and create them as you wish, or leave it one single partition. I'd install programs and save data to the HDD since the SSD is fairly small.

Can you disable any type of secure boot in BIOS (or UEFI)? That may be preventing you from booting from USB devices. Just be sure to disconnect the HDD prior to Windows installation. That will prevent any interference, or accidental erasures.

secure boot is disabled already and USB's prior is higher than others
