"Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key"

Long story short, my PC worked fine literally minutes before I started it up again. Now it just won't boot. I've cleared the BIOS, but can't think of any way to fix it. It is detecting my ssd, that's the REALLY strange part. Would be mega useful if someone could find a solution.

That means your bios can't detect your OSs boot loader, this can happen due to multiple reasons, like screwing around with device manager in windows(happened to me), a corruption in the boot loaders data, a malfunctioning drive, etc. The easiest fix is almost certainly reinstalling your OS, though not everyone has the possibility, luckily I was just about to do that when it happened to me.

Yeah, that is not a possibility for me. I have a storage drive, but I still have a lot on my ssd for quick access. Do you think windows recovery could fix it?

Maybe just make a bootable 10 ISO and run "startup repair".. would be easier.

... but I'm no expert.
