Reset all the setting back to the way you had them set before the flash.
This why it best keep the BIOS at default.

I set to UEFI defaults but it still doesn't show the hdd. Should I try setting it to AHCI?

Nevermind, I got it.

I went to the boot section, and there was something called Hard Drive BSS priorities. I went in there, and it showed my 2 HDDs. The 1TB was the 1st priority. I switched it with the other one and now windows is booting.

Weird...
