    Whoa, what happened to that system disk, was it like that from the beginning ? You would need to backup whole disk and SSD would have to be of same if not bigger size.

    Only drives/partitions with a letter will show up in File Explorer, Disk management shows everything. Run > diskmgmt.msc and you will see all.

    For OEM windows users all you have to do is download clean copy of Windows .ISO from MS and install cleanly on your computer. It will be registered thru your BIOS serial number automatically. Before that, I would suggest to download all the drivers for your computer from it's manufacturer in case Windows do not pick them up correctly.

    I usually prefer to install clean to repairing a mess some mfgs make on their laptops and brand name computers. If nothing else, if you do it right you get rid of all the junkware mfgs ad to their systems. Some mfgs also offer to download OS or send you a disk as it was installed for free or some nominal fee so you can get to pristine condition as it was when computer was bought without any personal stuff you may have added or done.
