On some systems, Windows will not boot if a failing/failed hard drive is attached to the system as a secondary drive.

I'd run the appropriate hard drive diagnostic on that drive, using the tool for such available at the website of the hard drive manufacturer.

SeaTools for DOS

Please follow Seagate instructions for use.

FWIW: NVRAM refers to your BIOS detection, has nothing to do with hard drive...other than to possibly indicate a problem with BIOS detection of the drive, IMO.

The NVRAM is more commonly referred to as the CMOS.
