bought a new PSU more my computer, pretty sure I put everything in correctly wire wise, and I got a Disk Boot Failure! Insert System Disk and hit Enter. Message.

Did my Hard drive fry? I used an anti-static wristband so I hope not. Any help would be appreciated

Did you by chance forget to plug power into the hd or maybe knocked the data cable off while working inside the system?

Totally possible, as I'm a complete and total computer nub and was only upgrading the PSU because the one in my desktop when I bought it was a total piece of crud. I -thought- I'd made sure to connect something in place of everything I unplugged, but totally possible I missed something

Will have to double check everything when I get home, at work at the moment.

Not a problem and honestly it's easy too miss one.
Is your hd a sata or IDE?
It could be possible if it is sata you may have just pulled the sata cable loose from the mobo.
