I've been using the same Kingston A400 120GB SSD as my boot device for Windows 7 for around two months when my computer abruptly shut off, and when it tried to reboot it booted into a USB drive with linux I had made a while ago and not removed. Whenever I try to force the computer to boot into the SSD it says to insert a boot device, but when booted into linux it still recognizes the SSD, shows files, and nothing seems to be corrupted. Does anyone have any idea what's going on / what I can do to find a solution?
