Hello Community,
FIrst of all, I apologize in advance if this thread is in the wrong place.
I started having trouble with my PC. I usually put it in stand by over night instead of shutting it down. One day I had to restart it, but then it wouldn't boot into Windows. Instead it remains frozen at the motherboard screen.
I managed to get into bios and manually select the SSD that has Windows installed on it and got it to work. The problem is that each time I shut it down or restart it, I bump into the same issue and I have to go to boot menu and select the specific SSD in order to get to Windows.

Here's what I tried so far:

I changed the boot priority, but it doesn't work unless I click it manually from boot menu.
I tried removing the CMOS battery for at least 10s and putting it back in. Before putting it back in I tried it on a flashlight and it didn't turn on (maybe the battery is dead, but I didn't get any CMOS related error).
I checked the RAM sticks on other PC and the memory slots and seem to work fine.
I also updated the BIOS from F8 to F10j. Didn't make any difference.
---------------------------------------------
This is my configuration
ASUS Z390UD
i9-9900K Coffee Lake-R, 3.60GHz
Gigabyte GeForce® RTX 2060 SUPER 8GB, 256bit
Corsair Vengeance 64GB, DDR4, 3200 MHz, CL16, 1.35V
SSD Kingston A400, 480GB, 2.5", SATA III
SSD Adata XPG SX6000 512GB PCIe M.2

Take a look at Disk Management and see if all partitions required for BOOT including C: is on only one disk and second disk is not set to active.

Second disk is set as Recovery Partition.
I am still facing the same issues. In the boot priority list I have:
  1. Windows Boot Manager (the other SSD, not the one with Windows installed on it)
  2. The actual Windows SSD
  3. USB Device
Even though I changed the boot priority, when I restart, it won't boot because the first option is always the Win Boot Manager with the other SSD - so I have to get to boot menu and manually select the SSD that has Windows on it.

Has anyone got into this problem before? I must admit, I am not very good with BIOS settings. My Bios Mode is set to Legacy (not sure if this info is helpful).
