Can not Boot

My main hard drive shot craps so I replaced it with a Samsung SSD 870 EVO 1 TB. This is a totally blank hard drive. I tried to install windows with the Media Creation Tool from Windows. I tried using a USB stick and a DVD disk. I also tried using a system repair disk I made about a year ago. None of these worked. It seems like the computer isn't even checking the USB drive or the DVD drive on bootup.
When I let the startup run I get the following message: "Boot device not found. Please install an operating system on your hard drive. Hard disk (3FO)
I run the system diagnostics (F2) and every thing is ok.
I got into BIOS and the boot order is as follows: 1. USB, Floppy, hp BD-RE; 2. My SATA hard drive.
The legacy option is disabled. The secure boot is disabled and the fast boot is disabled. Under Storage Options it says "SATA Emulation AHC1".
I'm at a loss as to what to do next.

I would try removing "floppy" from the boot-order.

Does your USB-stick light-ujp when it is reading/writing files?

When you try to boot from the USB, does its lamp blink a lot?

When you try to boot from the DVD media, do you hear the disk "spin-up" and make noise?

 

Is "boot only from UEFI" enabled?

 

When you power-on, can you press a key to "temporarily select a bootable device" ?
