PC won't boot after replacing CPU and Motherboard, with same HDD

Long story short, I replaced my CPU, and had to replace the motherboard as well for compatibility. It’s an ASRock H410M-HDV, if that makes any difference. I’m still using the same hard drive as I was previously, and haven’t made any changes; I’m using the same SATA cables, same power cables, even the same PSU. But now, when I go to boot, it won’t boot up. It takes me to BIOS, and when I go to the boot menu it says “no boot device found” or something like that, even though my hard drive shows up in the BIOS as being plugged into SATA port 0. Probably irrelevant, but I upgraded the RAM as well. Anybody ever experienced this? It seems rather bizarre, the hard drive should boot and I’m thinking it has something to do with the motherboard but not sure what.
