Why does Ubuntu see my hard drive as an SD card?

Am a total newbie, so apologies if this is a stupid question, but I've just installed Ubuntu via a live USB and cannot get it to boot from the hard drive. If the USB isn't in, it won't work.

I can see that the files are installed on my hard drive, but the hard drive shows up not a hard drive but as a 32 GB SD card. I'm presuming this is why it's not loading up from there. I've tried running boot repair, but this won't work either – the terminal tells me that ''yannubuntu' user or team does not exist.

For background info, the laptop previously had Windows 10 on it, which I erased to replace with Ubuntu.

Does anyone have any idea what has gone wrong and how I can fix this so that I can permanently boot from my hard drive?

Thanks in advance..
