Decided to give my little brother my wife's system after she left me about two weeks ago. Put everything in a new case for him and now neither the SSD or the regular hard drive i had in it are not showing up. ive tried swapping Sata ports and checking the power connections to the drives themselves but nothing is showing up in the bios.

All i get is a notification on boot that no hard drive is detected and goes straight to the efi shell and informs me that the efi shell cannot find required map name and requires me to type exit to even get to the bios themselves.

What could be the problem? I could understand if it was a faulty drive but i wouldnt think both would go out at the same time. Figure it may be the Sata cables themselves or that the Sata ports died on me. Is there a simple solution that im overlooking?

Does the BIOS have Legacy/UEFI options? try them out, sometimes drives will only show on LEGACY.

Assuming no BIOS settings were cleared due to a loose battery/etc while moving, I don't see how this would be part of the problem... although it is something that you should address.
I figure, reasonably, if your time/date settings and every other setting you may have adjusted in the BIOS are still applied properly, you're not going to get very far adjusting Legacy/UEFI settings.

If the drives themselves aren't showing up in the drive list, first I'd check is to make sure the drives still function on their own. Pull a drive and hook it up to an external dock, or into another computer, and see if it works.
Also, trace back each cable from the drive and make sure the connections are secure.
If you have a modular power supply, make sure both ends are hooked up properly.

If you have other SATA cables handy, try using those. Maybe the SATA cables went bad during the transfer.
If you have a multimeter handy, check the power coming out of the power supply and see if there are any irregularities with the voltage being provided by the connectors.

Sadly no multimeter but im thinking it has to be the power supply. will pull it and drop another one in the morning and see if that remedies the problem.
