I think Windows 10 on my system drive is corrupt

For reference, my PC build is a Ryzen 7 3700X on an MSI X570 motherboard, paired with an EVGA GeForce RTX 2080Ti.
I have a 500GB Samsung SSD, which is what my Win10 OS was downloaded on. This is part of my first PC, which was bought second-hand, so I’m not the one who purchased the OS originally. I also have a 2TB Hybrid drive and a 1 TB HDD.
My friend is building a PC, and I gave him my 1 TB HDD to compliment his build. In addition, since I am getting a new PSU, I am giving him my current 600w PSU, which I know is horribly underpowered for my setup, hence the new PSU. Yesterday I took out the PSU and connected it to his buid to make sure it works, and install an OS. After that, I put the PSU back in my build.
I went to power my PC on after reconnecting everything, and I am confronted with a black screen saying no OS was found on any of my drives. I disconnected the rest of my drives besides the SSD, and that didn’t work. I removed it and plugged it into a laptop with an adapter, and all the files are there including the windows folder, it apparently just won’t boot and I don’t know why.
Is it corrupted? What do I do to get this working without losing all my data?
Edit: The SSD with Win10 on it is from my first PC which was bought secondhand, meaning I did not buy and install windows personally
