Question SSD showing up as "Generic Loader SATA Device"

Today I got a service exception error BSOD and when my computer restarted I was hit with the select boot device option. After doing a clean install of windows on a separate drive to get back in I see now that the initial drive is not showing up on explorer anymore but it is showing up in disk management as Disk 1, but it doesn't have any information and I can't do anything with it. It's also showing up as Generi Loader SATA Device on device manager and windows says it's functioning properly but I can't access it or even format it.

I've tried power cycling, I've tried changing the data and power cables to see if its a cable problem, I've tried updating my BIOS, I've tried everything I can think of. It's very strange to me that windows appears to be picking up that the SSD is plugged in but it won't read the data off of it. It's as if I need to correct a driver error but I can't even get into the drive to do anything like that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

SSD/HDD:
