after removing and replacing PSU does it matter what order you plug things back in?

I think I got the order right but my computer is now doing a "Startup repair" and said it may take hours to compplete?

you did plug everything in with the PC switched off and Unplugged?

The old PSU blowing may have damaged your hard drive hence the repair, let it complete and hope the drive is not so severely damage it will not boot.

no it should not have done that, but if it as you should leave it running as you may foul up the operating system
