Hello,

 

When you changed the battery on the motherboard the bios settings were reset to their default values. The first thing to do is to go to the "Storage" menu of the bios (F10 at startup), sub-menu "Storage Options", and look at the SATA mode which must have been set to "RAID + AHCI" (the default setting). If you did not choose this mode when you installed your Windows then this could explain this. Try the other options ("AHCI" or "IDE"...). Then check also the boot disk.

 

I may be wrong but it's worth a try.
