Depending on if you have an M.2 slot populated or not, some SATA to PSU cables will be disabled. It's really dependent on your motherboard too. But you perhaps could've plugged in a disabled SATA cable. Double check to make sure your SATA to Motherboard cable is in the SATA 3.0 and not 2.0 as well.

Check the connections and make sure it's plugged in properly then.

Ive never heard of an hdd not working when switching psu. Only thing I can think of is it somehow fried the HDD? But incredibly unlikely unless user error.

All I did was install some fans and switched the psu, powered up fine but for some reason the hdd is not on options for boot, could I have fried the hdd?
