It is possible that the power outage forced the BIOS SETTINGS back to some "default" values.

Check that your disk-drive is listed as the first item in the list of "bootable" devices.

 

Note that the "quick test" only confirms that the disk-drive is present, and is capable of reading/writing. 

It does not confirm that all the "essential" files to start Windows are present and uncorrupted.

Boot from Windows Installation Media, and choose "Repair", instead of "Install Windows Now".
