    Because there was no option to install windows on any SSD, only HDD.

    Did you check if SATA port used on the SSD is enabled?

    Where do I find that setting?

    Is it this?

    Well, everything looks good in BIOS (hot plug should be disabled, just like it is), so it is a mystery why Windows is not detecting it. What do you see in Device Manager under disk drives?

    Have you ever been able to use this SSD in Windows?

    Yes before my reinstall my SSD was working fine.

    I noticed my motherboard seem to be malfunctioning or needs new drivers, is this something that might have to do with it?

    It's possible, yes, but that does not explain why the SSD is not showing up when you boot from the USB flash drive. I would try swapping the SATA data cables between the HDD and the SSD and see what happens. What is the exact make and model of the motherboard?

    Here is the chipset driver:

    I don't think that will fix the SSD problem, though. Did you swap the SATA data cables between the HDD and the SSD yet?

    Will try the driver.

    Switch these two SATA cables?

    Of course, ASUS picks this moment to take their website down for maintenance. Yes, try switching the cables.
