So i recently got my new hardwareupgrade, which contained a Ryzen 5600X, 2 DDR4 Corsair Memories, and a A520M-K motherboard. Ive been told that i need to update bios in order for my motherboard to be able to acknowledge the CPU, and so i have done. The trouble i have however, is that when i try to run my PC after ive done all that, it wont start windows from my harddrive. I use the same harddrives that i used prior, one is a 120 ssd which i have W10 on, and an older 1TB drive for storaging. It will not recognize my W10, it doesnt show in the Bootmenu. I even tried running a fresh W10 installment from a flashdrive, but then instead i got a message saying "Windows Cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style ". One thing to note is that the BIOS recognizes the harddrives. They are both shown in the BIOS options, but it cannot find any bootable device.

Needless to say, im in need of help here! :)

New hardware = fresh OS install.
Deleting ALL existing partitions on the desired drive as you do this.
