I bought all new components except from the hard drive as it already had windows installed on it, I replaced all the parts booted to bios with everything working fine however once windows had booted my keyboard and mouse became ‘dead’ in the sense they were powered but the led’s didn’t show and they weren’t receiving any inputs despite working fine in the bios. Any suggestions?

Try using the old keyboard and mouse, chances are you don't have the correct drivers for the new ones.

The keyboard and mouse weren’t new, I switched the keyboard for an older one to see if the issue was with the keyboard and the same thing happened

Unless you follow the procedure outlined at the top of the forum, this is almost always going to fail. You cannot take a windows install, change major hardware and expect it to work; not going to happen unless you do the steps in the guide. Even doing all of the steps, you will have to activate windows. If this windows install was from a big box system ie dell, hp, whatever, you are going to need a new windows lic. If this was a full retail ver of windows, you can install that as many times as you want as long as it is installed on only one system at a time.
