GPT disk partitions not in recommended order with Windows 10, SSD and recovery

Hi,

I have a Laptop with SSD and HD. I am doing Windows fresh installation with removing all partitions.

Windows 10 were installed in SSD. While installation I see an error message as

GPT disk partitions not in recommended order.....

And I found a link

Before following steps explained in the above link, I would like to know,

SSD has Recovery partitions. If I follow steps explained in the above link, what about Recovery partitions?
Will it affect the recovery partitions?

Moreover, please let me know, how to delete HDD partitions as I am not able to delete HDD partitions.
In the pic 231.6GB is SSD.

Pls help me to resolve the issue so that I can install Windows as Windows partition deleted and formatted and I am unable to use the system.

With Regards

Hello,
Which drive is the Drive 0 and drive is Drive 1?
What the the partitions on Drive 1?
Setup may be trying to install the System and MSR partitions to Drive 0 since that is the first drive detected and reported by the BIOS to Windows

Hi,
If you are reinstalling or wanting to Clean install, you may need to delete the Critical Partitions and leave unallocated space in that area.
The Critical partitions are the Recovery, EFI System, MSR and OS. You can only see the MSR partition in Diskpart or during an install on the Partitions window.
