Is Windows installed on the SSD properly?
Are you referring to the boot list in the BIOS?
System manufacturer and model...or motherboard manufacturer and model (if not OEM system)?

Remove the SSD...install it as a secondary drive in a different system...see if it can be read and accessed properly.
If it can, I would be inclined to check for other hardware "errors" or situations that might have been due to a failing CMOS battery.

A failing CMOS battery provides several clues, IME. The clock/time display is only one clue and it's not necessarily the most important clue. IME, sudden unexplained configuration problems...hardware errors...or anything that seemingly arises out of the blue and impacts hardware components...may indicate a failing CMOS. Considering that the price of a new battery is well less than $5...it's well worth a try to neutrlaize/resolve whatever may be amiss. IMO.

I stated that it was to be a secondary drive...not a boot drive. I would not expect a boot drive from a different system...to work in another system...as a boot drive.
