Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today.
Where are you uploading files? What site, and what browser are you using?

usually the repair doesn't help, but worth a shot
F8 repeatedly on startup, try safe mode with networking for the on screen options
Hard drive may have gone bad if it says no bootable devicestry the F5 for diagnostic
yes you would need a sata to usb connector tho
yes it would act like a flash drive plugged in
something like this; https://www.walmart.com/ip/SATA-7-15P-to-SATA-Data-7-Pin-USB-2.0-Male-Adapter-Y-Splitter-Power-Cable-55cm/46565551?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=571&adid=22222222227034230990&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=55652783978&wl4=pla-86827250978&wl5=9018274&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=111838760&wl11=online&wl12=46565551&wl13=&veh=sem
