Well done Terry,
I would move the SanDisk to Sata port 1 and the Port 1 to Sata port 2, move the Hitachi to Sata port 3 and the DVD to Sata port 6, this will put the undetected ports as port 3 and 5. This will keep your active drives in order.
You need to expand or enter the "Sata Configuration" tab and hopefully their will be a setting their to configure how the Sata drives are being configured.
Also, expand the SanDisk tab and see what settings are their.
Take a screenshot with these two tabs opened.

Terry
Don't worry too much about what port the drives are on. I believe your BSOD may be tied to the mode your Sata drives are in (AHCI or IDE.
My Asus mobo had the same BSOD after I installed the Fall Creator update. Somehow Windows changed all my mobo's settings back to UEFI and AHCI for my Sata mode and I was able to boot my SanDisk SSD but not my other drives, until I changed back to Legacy boot and IDE Sata drive mode.
I really need to know what mode your Sata drives are in?

SATA drives are in IDE mode. I changed them to ACHI but got a BSOD on restart.

I have just about decided to upgrade to W10 . Before I can do that I need to enlarge my system reserve (E).
I have some software to do that but I can't seem to accomplish that simple task.

OK
Now that you have AHCI enabled unplug all other drives, except for the DVD Rom, and see if that SSD will then boot. You might have to use your Del, or F8, or the F10 or whatever key that brings up your boot menu, and chose the SSD to boot.
Good job, that is the setting I have been wanting to see.

Leave in AHCI mode, turn off PC and unplug all other boot drives. Reboot and chose the SSD to boot from. W7 should boot if the AHCI drivers were installed when OS was installed. This might take a couple of reboots to get the bios right.

Terry,
At this point all I can tell you is to reformat and reinstall whatever OS you wish. I would caution you to reinstall to a disk that has already been formatted with a partition for Windows.
The only other thing I can think of that you might could try is to go back to IDE mode, disable UEFI and Secure boot and disable fast startup and go back to Legacy boot.
Sorry I could not help more.
