    i put the SSD i removed back in my computer but now i can't boot to it. i'm assuming this has something to do with removing it from the msconfig boot screen on my other SSD but i'm not sure how to make it boot to the secondary drive again.

    When you disconnect a disk from the PC then later on re-connect it. The boot order & priority in the BIOS might get messed up. Double check this.
    If it still does not boot then connect the disk to another PC running Windows. Take a screen shot then post it.

    Boot order is not enough. What about Boot priority ?
    BTW, is your Windows installed with Legacy or GPT ?

    boot priority is what i was referring too.

    i'm not sure i know what you mean legacy or GPT. i installed windows normally and did not do anything out of the ordinary.

    EDIT i looked in my bios and this is what i see.
    launch cms enabled
    boot device control uefi and legacy
    boot from storage device legacy

    not sure if it matters but the main drive in my pc is an m.2. one thing i noticed is there are 2 boot priorities listed for the m.2 which is something i've never seed before. one says microsoft boot manager and the other says samsung 960 pro. i've tried disabling all boot priority except the crucial as well as setting the windows boot manager before and after the crucial.

    There's 2 modes that Windows can be installed: Legacy (MBR) and UEFI (GPT). If your Windows disk is initialized with MBR then your Windows is using the Legacy MBR disk layout. Try the boot priority to: Samsung 960 Pro.

    BTW, do you have Macrium rescue disk on USB or DVD ?

    is there a way i can check if i'm using legacy or UEFI?

    boot priority samsung boots to my main os. i use to get the boot manager screen that asked me which windows i want to boot but after i removed the secondary os from the msconfig boot screen i no longer get asked what disk i want to boot.

    i do not have a macrium disk.

    Do you have the Windows installation disk ? if yes, boot it up. Press SHIFT + F10 then type:
    diskpart
    select disk 0
    list partition
    exit

    Post the result.

    OK that means your Windows was installed using GPT disk layout.
    Boot the Windows installation disk, press SHIFT + F10 then type:
    mountvol U: /S
    cd /d U:\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\
    bootrec /fixboot
    ren BCD BCD.old
    bcdboot c:\Windows /l en-us /s U: /f ALL
    exit
    reboot
