    @zbook, I disconnected all drives except for the new SSD which is the INTEL SSDPEKNW020T8 NVMe. Then I booted with the Windows 10 installer disk and typed the command bcdedit command. However, that returns (without the pipe)

    "The boot configuration data store could not be opened. The requested system device cannot be found".

    I then reconnected the SSD that I need in order to boot. When I then type the bcdedit command with the filter I get

    osdevice partition=C:


    @NavyLCDR the BIOS error I am getting is "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key_"

    Detach all drives except the NvME.

    Boot to the Windows 10 iso > command prompt

    type:

    diskpart
    lis dis
    sel dis 0
    (make sure this is the NvME)
    exit

    type: bcdboot C:\Windows /s C: /f BIOS

    reboot

    After diskpart return to X: by typing exit

    X: <------- change this drive letter to the drive letter of the installation USB flash drive.
    CD \boot
    bootsect /nt60 C: /force /mbr <------ change C: to match the drive letter of your installed Windows partition you found in diskpart
    bcdboot C:\Windows /s C: /f ALL <------ change both C: to match the drive letter or your installed Windows partition
    exit

    reboot

    @zbook, I did detach the drives and booted into the installer CD. Then I did the diskpart, lis dis, sel dis 0 (the new SSD is indeed #0). Then I typed "bcdboot C:\Windows /s C: /f BIOS" but that just showed me the options of diskpart. See attachment. So I exited diskpart and entered the command in the main prompt. Then I rebooted but still got the error "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key_"

    These are all of the steps:

    diskpart
    lis dis
    lis vol
    (this should display the drive letter for the flash drive and the drive letter for Windows)
    exit

    X: <----- change this drive letter to the drive letter of the installation USB flash drive.
    CD \boot
    bootsect /nt60 C: /force /mbr <-----change C: to match the drive letter of your installed Windows partition you found in diskpart
    bcdboot C:\Windows /s C: /f ALL <-----Change both C: to match the drive letter or your installed Windows partition
    exit

    reboot

    @zbook, I tried this but now my system broke down. Please see the screenshot for the results of what I got. After rebooting I got a blue screen saying " Your PC ran into a problem and needs to rrestart. We'll restart for you". It restarted a few times and then I got "Your PC couldn't start properly. After multiple tries.... Error code: 0xc000001...".

    Find a flash drive that you can format.

    On a working computer create a tool to troubleshoot the drive:
    Kyhi boot rescue flash drive:
    Toolkit Item: Kyhiís Rescue Disk Ė Win10.Guru
    Toolkit Item: Kyhiís Rescue Disk Ė Win10.Guru

    Boot using Kyhi boot rescue.
    It has Windows enterprise with many installed software.

    If these software are not already installed they can be downloaded.

    Run HD Tune (free version) (all drives)
    HD Tune website
    Post images into the thread for results on these tabs:
    a) Health
    b) Benchmark
    c) Full error scan

    Download HD Tune 2.55


    Run Sea Tools for Windows
    long generic test
    Post an image of the test result into the thread
    SeaTools for Windows |
    Seagate

    How to use SeaTools for Windows | Seagate Support US


    Backup any important files to another drive.

    @NavyLCDR may have some additional troubleshooting steps.

    Were there any other steps or commands ran that were not in the images?

    Was the old SSD (N:) reattached?

    The image in post #17 displayed C: RAW before running both commands.
    Were there unexpected shutdowns?
    or power offs?

    @zbook, I did not run anything additional besides what you listed because I didn't want to create confusion by doing something you don't know about. The only thing I did is running the items listed in your post #16 twice before rebooting. Both of them gave the same exact result. On the first reboot the old SSD was still disconnected. Then when I got this blue screen I connected the old SSD again to see if it would boot. As expected, I got the same blue screen. I then disconnected that old SSD again.

    I am running the HD Tune 2.55 now. The benchmark didn't show anything interesting (Min 399.5, max 916.0, average 754.6, access time 0.2ms, burst rate 182.7, cpu usage 7.4%). Health is all empty and there is no Start button to click to start a health test. I am running the Error Scan now but I suspect it will take a couple more hours. So far everything is green. Also the only drives that show up is the NVMe INTEL drive, the bootable USB stick I created and another USB stick that I used to transfer HD Tune 2.55 from another computer to the one with the issue.
