My ssd isn’t booting

So I just got a new motherboard, and my when I plugged in my ssd, I didn’t boot, I didn’t even show as a bootable device, then when I went to put the ssd in a completely different computer it didn’t boot, so what do I do?

Check the bios. Does it show up there?

It's probably UEFI boot. That style of boot requires entries in the BIOS because it boots to a file located on a special partition instead of searching for a drive to directly boot to. Most BIOSes have the option to create new entries.

Don't put it into Legacy mode. Switch it back and let's figure out the real issue.

You really shoul stop using legacy mode, and reinstall Windows rather than trying to boot an old Windows installation in this case.
