A "factory reset" should only work on the "C drive".
Unless the system came with both drives preinstalled.

I'm not even going to ask Why you did this....

I picked to wipe all drives and I want to wipe the hdd that I accidentally unplugged so will it still work? And it happens because I have some HDDs and SSDs that I don't want resetting so I have unplugged them and the cable to the hdd that o want to reset was loose and unplugged.

'will it still work'?
Absolutely unknown.

I suggest starting over.
