No Boot Device Found

Just replaced my hard drive with a new one from ifixit, when running diagnostics it now shows no errors when previously it said there was a problem with the hard drive. On boot up it states: No Boot Device Found. Press any key to reboot machine

On the boot menu after pressing F2, I only have the following options:

LEGACY BOOT: (which is gray)


When selecting UEFI BOOT:

UEFI Onboard LAN IPv4

UEFI Onboard LAN IPv6

It doesn't seem to matter which order they are in

After reading all other forums, I have not found a solution to this.

Is this a good question?

did you format your drive re-install your Operating system on the new hard drive? When you boot to BIOS check if the hard drive is getting detected there or not. Here are the steps:

Restart the system and immediately start tapping the 'F2' key to enter the 'BIOS'.

Please check what is written next to 'Fixed HDD'.

Double check your installation and your drives compatibility
