Question M.2 with winload.exe error detected in bios but not anywhere else

Hello
So last night I accidentally hit the power switch while my M.2 SSD with Windows 10 was booting up. Tried booting up again and I got the winload.exe error 0xc000000e . Pressing any of the options other than a different operation system didn't do anything. I tried fixing it by getting the Windows Creation Tool on a USB and trying bootrec and startup repair, but my M.2 is not shown at all and nothing worked. The M.2 shows in bios, but not in device manager or disk management when I checked on a secondary SSD. I thought I could fix it myself, but this is beyond my knowledge and I would like some help recovering the M.2. Thanks!
