Reboot And Select proper Boot Device

I built my first rig a few years ago and haven't had too many major issues with it until today.

Here are the specs:

Asus P9X79 LE ATX LGA2011 Motherboard
Intel Core™ i7-3930K
SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III Solid State Drive
Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

Windows was installed and running off of the Samsung SSD

Here's the issue:

I drove it from Florida to New York last August and had no problems upon setting it up. It's pretty much been fine all this time. Last week I moved it to my new place. It worked fine for a few days. I used it last night, it was perfect, nothing out of the ordinary. This morning I wake up and turn it on only to be greeted with "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key."

I've tried so many fixes that have been posted on here and various other sites. I disconnected all drives but the SSD windows is installed on and tried to boot. Dusted off the insides. Reconnected the drives. Changed the boot order in BIOS so my SSD was first. Overided the boot to the SSD. Still, I get the same problem. To make matters worse now I don't see my Seagate drive in BIOS anymore now that i've connected it again. I haven't checked the drives to see if they've failed, which I know is the obvious first step, but I don't have a Windows disk so I can't really do that.

I included the info about the move because I'm guessing that has something to do with the problem but I'm at a loss. Any advice would be appreciated!

Going to try to go ahead and burn a Windows disc so I can check my drives, though i assume they haven't failed.

Before we say there is something wrong...

with your SSD, maybe you can try a linux-live dvd or some other bootable devices, and see if it does the something or not.
