I currently have an NVME drive with Windows 11 installed on it which is the main drive.

Previously I added another SATA SSD and installed Windows 10 on it.

What happened was that the Windows 11 bootloader was corrupted and after disconnecting the SATA SSD I could no longer boot into the main drive, so I ended up fixing it using Method 2 in this article: FIX: A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed 0x000000E on Windows 10/8/8.1 - - Windows Tips & How-tos

But now I want to try it again, but make the bootloader ( the window on startup that let's you choose between the OS's ) be on the main drive.

Last time it just did that automatically after I installed Windows 10 on the SATA drive so I am not sure how to manually make it not install the bootloader from the secondary drive
