    Need help with SSD issue unknown issue

    Hello everyone,

    I will try to make this as short as possible.

    My laptop is having a weird issue. let me explain.

    everything was working fine. finished work and turned off the laptop. next day back to work turned it on it goes straight to BIOS. looked through the issue and BIOS can't detect a boot drive. tried everything on the internet but nothing worked. so I uninstalled windows then reinstalled fresh copy. it worked but then as soon as I restarted the laptop same issue happened.
    replaced the Sata unit and replaced SSD (Samsung evo). installed windows and everything worked fine then one restart and again BIOS can't detect boot drive.

    to be honest been searching for answers for the past week. no one can help. the weird thing is that BIOS can't detect the boot drive SSD but when I load windows installation the SSD is detected there.

    p.s windows, bios and all drivers are up to date. I did memory test and it pass. I did SSD test and it pass.
    can't rebuild boot from cmd because no SSD is detected.

    I am helpless at this moment any help will be appreciated.

    Thank you very much.

    then one restart and again BIOS can't detect boot drive.
    It would be great if this was simply a CMOS battery problem- at least worth checking.

    Unless I am not fully the drive shown in the uefi/bios? You have two drives in it? UEFI/GPT or BIOS/MBR style? I'm thinking Windows has installed the boot files on one drive and the OS on another and when you reboot it is looking at the "Windows" drive but the boot files are on the other?

    Windows just loves to do this crap, especially if you have an NVME/PCIe SSD. I had to physically remove every drive except the "Windows " drive when installing on mine or it would do this crap every time.

    Test: Try going into the bois/uefi and setting the other drive as first boot device and see what happens.
