[SOLVED] PC won't boot from Hard Drive after hardware update

Hello,

I just upgraded my system and now, on boot, it immediately launches the BIOS screen instead of running from the Windows 10 HDD. The hard drive is showing up in the BIOS but nothing else. I've tried changing boot order, replacing SATA cables, rebooting with no drives to try and refresh it. The only other problem I can see causing it would be that it shows the RAM running at 2666Mhz when it should be at 3200Mhz.

New hardware includes: Intel i5-10400F, MSI GTX 2060 OC, 16GB Crucial Ballistix 3200Mhz, MSI Z490-A Pro. and a new Seagate Barracuda 2TB. Hard drive in question is a Toshiba DT01ACA100

If the drive shows up, try toggling UEFI/CSM mode function and seeing if the drive is now seen as bootable.

However, like was said above, a fresh installation of windows is almost always a good idea when changing hardware significantly.
