Custom Build gaming pc troubles

Okay y'all see here's what's going on I custom built my own PC. This specs are as follows ryzen 3 2200 G, MSI b350 Tomahawk motherboard, 16GB ddr4 3200 megahertz G skill Ram, a fryer rig M9 a CPU Cooler, a Corsair CX 450 power supply. So when I first build it what I did is I had bought a solid state drive that had Windows 10 already installed on it yeah I know big mistake. So initially I had trouble after trouble codes. Finally I reset the computer completely and that fix most of the problems, however I am still not able to add additional storage to it I've tried to different hard drive. I know for sure one of them works. And then I tried it with the dock plugged in by advice. I know it's not the SATA ports because I plugged into different Ford's that I knew for sure worked. But I can't add storage that right now is about the only problem there's some really aware of I wanted to play games on it and it started real bad when I install GTA V but I think that would be fixed now since I reset it the problem is, my SSD is only a hundred and 80 gb now right now 70 is taken up by just the Windows 10 operating system thanks a lot windows. But if I completely uninstall the operating system from the hard drive and then reinstall a brand new copy of Windows 10. Will that fix the problem I talk to a friend whose does computer science and is way way smarter than me when it comes to computers, and she said that most likely it's because I installed the Windows operating system that was pre-installed on the SSD how do I completely remove the operating system from that and where can I get a legitimate copy of Windows for cheap price. As in about 80 bucks. I appreciate your help and thank you

80GB of Win10??? there are surely junk files like updates or restoration files lying around.

When trying to make the HDD work, did you ever visit this menue:

Yes but it did not list the drive at all

does the hardware-manager show an unkown device?

if so, that is probably your HDD with the status "not migrated"

which basically means there are several drivers interfering with each other

I recommend a clean re-install of Win10

download official iso file: https://www.microsoft.com/software-download/windows10

I recently found out that the problem has to do with the master boot recored I. Basically it's corrupted drama which considering how bad that can . got off pretty light with just not being able to reinstall Hardware new hardware. I have read that it has bricked peoples systems. Or stuck in an endless boot Loops, all kind of s*** so basically my first thing I'm going to do is buy me a Windows key. already got the Windows installation well USB. going to wipe everything and then reading reinstall windows with a clean windows key it turns out my device was activated through a product file or something. The opposite of a key.
