I have an acer pc running windows 10 I got a 120gb sandisk ssd and installed it. Cloned my hdd to it and don't know where to go from there. I want to have both in my computer but need the ssd to run my OS and a few programs (3ds max, zbrush, marvelous designer). When I go into the BIOS setup utility it shows 1st boot device as windows boot manager and under hard disk drive priority it has 1st boot device and 2nd boot device and both have 3 options
Windows boot manager
Windows boot manager
So I have no idea what is the SSD and what is the HDD I can include screenshots if needed

Choose one and see whether Windows boots from the HDD or the SSD. Then you'll know which is which.

If you go into the BIOS options for disk detection...you probably set the order there.  1st drive listed will be first in the boot order.
