Hi guys, I have a custom built PC and I recently just tried to install a new another HDD due to the post steam sale madness. during the process of installing my HDD I did end up moving all my sata connections to the mobo around to make room as things get cramped. after installing the HDD and two fans I tried starting up my pc and all the error light on the mobo flashed red and the pc hangs at screen with the mobo logo where all the options are offered. after solving the issue with the memory my mobo still doesn't detect any boot device. I continued to switch sata port connections but still got nothing. I even tried flashing the bios thinking that if I still didnt get the configuration right I could just redo the settings and after doing that I get past the boot screen but then I started to hang at a black blank screen where at this point you'd normally see windows start up. I tried everything I could and I am pretty much out of Ideas. what do you guys think the problem is? can it be fixed ? or is my system ready to go to the big mobo in the sky?

Parts list:
EVGA 02G-P4-2761-KR GeForce GTX 760 2GB (GPU)

Antec EarthWatts EA-650 GREEN 650W ATX12V(PSU)

AMD FX-6300 Vishera 3.5GHz(CPU)

Kingston HyperX Blu 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3(RAM)

Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM (primary drive)
ASUS 24X DVD Burner

ASUS PCE-N53 Dual-Band Wireless-N600 Adapter (wi-fi)

Asus M5A99X EVO R2.0 (motherboard)

Seagate ST1000DM003 (the secondary drive I want to install)

Update 1: Also I forgot to mention that getting into the bios is not working. either my keyboard will not respond, or I can get past the first screen that has the Asus logo and options to go to ufei bios to a second screen that doesn't respond to keyboard strokes.

In you bios look for a section that specifies which hard drive drive is your boot.

In the BIOS under "Advanced BIOS Features" first entry should be "Hard Disk Boot Priority"
Should sort it out.
