A disk read error can indicate a failing drive. You can download the iso of UBCD and either burn a CD or create a bootable USB flash drive with Rufus. You may need to enable Legacy Boot in your UEFI settings in order for UBCD to boot correctly. Your MB may have a boot menu available that will let you select Legacy Mode.
Boot UBCD and at the menu screen select Parted Magic. At the Parted Magic desktop select Disk Health and run the short/long tests. Disk Health starts GSmartControl. UBCD also has memtest+86 to test memory. Run it for at least six passes.
If you need data off the SSD you can pull it using Parted Magic per this guide.
If you have your Windows 7 key you can download your version of Windows 7 in iso format using this tool. Your AV may flag it but it's a FP. When you run the tool it takes a bit of time before you see the selections.

If the disk is a System Repair Disk for Windows 7 do a startup repair. It may take up to three attempts for startup repair to rebuild the BCD.

Did you run the disk and memory diagnostics using UBCD?
