Manjaro installer not recognizing SSD

Im trying to install manjaro (the kde one)
And ive made the bootable usb correctly but when i try to do the installer it does not recognize my ssd In my pc whatsoever
But i can get it to recognize another usb just not the ssd
Im very much new to linux so I cannot figure out where to even begin resolving this myself
Edit: ive already formatted the partition on the drive but not cleared the partitions but didnt go any further just since i do not want to goof anything

To prevent that do the following first in windows:
