Also nice is that I got a new Windows 10 license because my old license was still owned by my old employer.
I'm not sure if they knew or if they'd find out, but now that I have my own license I don't care about that anymore
The Dell empoyee is required to check if the Windows license is valid and he saw that it was a corporate volume license.

I got a new SSD and everything worked again.
I'd bet $1000 bucks that there is nothing wrong with the old SSD drive. I'd bet that the partition was protected by bitlocker and the UEFI BIOS had secure boot enabled.

Congratulations on fixing the PEBKAC error.

Best Wishes,
