GeneralThinks System Has Dual Boot Pin

I have a problem where my system thinks I have Win10 on two different drives. I bought a self-specced machine into which I transferred the HDs from my old machine. The new machine had an SSD so I used AOMEI Partition Assistant to transfer Win 10 off the old system HD onto the SSD. Everything was going well until I discovered I couldn't transfer photos off my camera SD card. The system wasn't recognising the device. It wasn't there when the system was originally built. So I decided to reinstall Win10 on the SSD. Afterwards I formatted the old system HD to remove everything.

However, every time I boot up, the system displays a screen which asks which system I want to boot up. Even though it offers me the chance to set the default, it appears to just ignore it. AOMEI PA tells me that both drives contains a small primary partition which I assume indicates that the drive contains a bootable system. I am unable to remove that from the reformatted HD.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to clear the old HDD?
