    Lets do the basic
    Open a CMD window as administrator and type:
    chkdsk c: /f
    It will say your disk is in use and if you want to schedule to next start = yes
    Restart

    Version 3.4 is installed, that should be the latest available update, right?. (ASRock > Fatal1ty X99X Killer)

    I checked for firmware updates from the UEFI as well but it says it's up to date.

    Ok, not sure if this is good or bad news. Any suggestions on what else to check?
    not necessarily good or bad news.
    It means, in my opinion, that something has to be done in the Bios level to solve this issue.

    First, your Bios release date is 2018. check for new Bios version.

    Second, check the boot order; make sure that none of the data disks are listed in the boot order.
    Also make sure the PXE is not listed before the SDD disk in the boot order.

    The installed BIOS is the latest available one from the motherboard manufacturer's website (ASRock > Fatal1ty X99X Killer)

    In UEFI boot settings, the SSD is the first and only option. I have removed the other disks from the boot order.
    I don't know what PXE is, but there is no such option.
    Now that I think about it, is it possible there used to be Windows Boot Manager as an option? I only have the disk drives as options now.

    Looking at Partition Wizard, everything seems to be OK
    I would have Win 10 installed in EFI- GPT mode rather than Legacy-MBR.
    You can still convert Convert Windows 10 from Legacy BIOS to UEFI without Data Loss

    Well, this solved it!

    I ran the conversion and when I opened UEFI settings, Windows Boot Manager was already set as the first boot option. I disabled CSM, saved and rebooted.
    No more black screen, it went straight to the login screen!

    THANK YOU!!
