Question newbie bevel question

Hello, this is probably a very basic question but I can't seem to figure it out :(

I want to modify a cube, so that two of its edges have a large bevel, and the rest of it's edges have a small bevel.

I've done the edges with the large bevel first, and selected the edges I want to do a smaller bevel on (image 1):



But now when I try to bevel those edges, this happens (image 2):



I know im missing something obvious here, but can anyone help?

For reference, im trying to model the large computer on the right in this image:

Thank you! !!

You'll get a better result if you check the "create ngons" box when you bevel. Afterwards you can use the "remove ngons" command if you like.

dissolve the extra edges on the side of the cube first

You could also just extrude it. 1

Connect and delete splines and use a half round cap option. 2
