Are you trying to install windows?
No I have windows on one of my hdds and on one of my m.2 ssd
In my bios it doesn’t even detect either of hdds or optical drive and it doesn’t let me boot windows even though it’s installed on my detectable ssd it just shows the select proper boot drive error
I have been trying for a few days to get my drives to read they’re not damaged or anything :(

I forgot to ask...Why you have 2 Windows?
I have 2 windows because my pc kept crashing with a blue error screen so I installed windows on one of my hdds but noticed how incredibly slow startups were and opening programs so I bought a new ssd but once I installed the new ssd the windows on my old ssd was working fine again

Also I finally got around to trying your advice and it didn’t work sadly ):

Omg..Just keep one OS installation in your pc.You are going to get conflicts like that all the time.
I’ve been meaning to uninstall the one on the hdd but I can’t do that now since none of my sata devices can be read and windows doesn’t boot on my ssd :(

So basically you cant boot your pc with any of your drives..
Right it doesn’t read the sata drives and my m.2 with windows pops up in the bios but it says I need to restart and select a bootable drive or something and my optical drive doesn’t show I can’t even install windows on my new m.2 ssd

Do the same thing with all the other drives.And tell me if it reads one of them in bios.

Thats ok the point is that you got you pc back on again.Just keep you pc running with your working drive.DO NOT CONNECT THE OTHER ONES YET.Update you CHIPSET DRIVERS and then go to control panel>ADA/ATAPI controllers and tell me what it says or better post a screenshot.Take your time.
