Make sure you have rearranged your boot drive orders. That drive needs to be detected at first when you boot to your desktop screen. I would ask you to enter your BIOS screen - go to Boot - secure boot and then your options- save and exit.

it was working then stopped. BUT eben when it was working there were some problems like i could not select auto hide taskbar
You can try a different SATA port but since it's detected in BIOS and was working you might need to try and reinstall windows.

You have made no changes in BIOS correct.

Most of the time if it's a windows problem it trys to go into repair at least.

EDIT. When reinstalling windows make sure no other drives are connected but the SSD.

If you set it that way during the install, yes.
