First off, I originally had my desktop dual booted with Windows 10 Pro and Kubuntu, each were installed on separate 1tb Samsung evo SSDs. This worked great, except for the fact that I didn't really like kubuntu. The other day I tried to install Manjaro over my kubuntu installation and ran into some serious issues. I ended up wiping the disk (/dev/sdb) using blkdiscard command while in the live boot disk. After I did this, I was able to install manjaro onto the disk. The only issue was that I must have somehow deleted or modified the boot management system because I was unable to access grub and choose which operating system to boot into. I tried to fix the boot issue using a windows installation USB, recovery utility and the command prompt. None of this worked. At this point I was at my wits end, so i decided to through in the towel and reinstall windows and then install manjaro using a different partition configuration. I've tried this 3 different times with 3 different partition schemes. Nothing has worked. Today I thought I would try and return the disks to a factory state using hdparm. Sadly this also didn't work because both drives are frozen and hdparm will not format a frozen disk. I am at a loss as to what I should try next.
Below are screenshots of the partition schemes, update-grub results, fdisk -l output, and hdparm security output that applies to both disks.
