Windows won’t boot. Need help decoding Boot Repair report

So I did something REALLY stupid and used a different cable that did not come

So I did something REALLY stupid and used a different cable that did not come with my PSU to try to plug in a new GPU. Turned computer on and saw a quick flash and then totally dead. This is a PC I built about 10 years ago, but was running still extremely well. I replaced one part at a time to figure out the issue, first PSU, then RAM, then motherboard, then CPU. Finally looked into the hard drive and it’s pretty clear that the boot drive SSD is damaged. I couldn’t get it to mount, but power cycled it a few times and got it to be recognized through USB on another PC I have. BUT, it still wouldn’t boot on its own.

I ran Boot Repair off an Ubuntu flash drive and got the results below. Still won’t boot. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
