Acer Boot Issue

I have a Acer Aspire V3-571G-6602 model. I am experiencing an issue where I receive this message: no bootable device - insert boot disk and press any key. I have googled for many potential answers. The situation started when my original HDD had a disk error. I backed that up into my tera drive... and bought a SSD. I started my laptop with the new SSD and booted/installed Linux Fedora. After the next boot, I received an error of "no bootable device... blah blah". In no case can I get my laptop to even boot Fedora with the new SSD. I tried my old HDD, and that still boots my semi-broken version of Windows 8... So I know I might have messed something up with SSD. With the "no bootable device..." error, I've seen many FAQs/forums that say I can try and use an Acer recovery disk to solve this... But I have no idea what's going to work. Can you help?
Somethings I tried.... : buying an ENTIRELY new SSD, rebooting, changing boot order in BIOS, taking the SSD out and putting it in repeatedly.
