    You can use Macrium reflect or AOMEI backup freeware to clone the SSD. Then disable secure boot by first setting a BIOS supervisor password and see if you can rearrange the BIOS Boot tab priority order to boot from the SSD. Jack E/NJ

    Step-by-step guides for a successful clone operation:
    1. Verify the actual used space on the current drive is significantly below the size of the new SSD
    2. Download and install MiniTool ShadowMaker.
    3. Power off
    4. Disconnect ALL drives except the current C and the new SSD
    5. Power up
    6. Run the MiniTool ShadowMaker
    7. Select ALL the partitions on the existing C drive
    8. Click the 'Clone' button
    9. Wait until it is done
    10. When it finishes, power off
    11. Disconnect ALL drives except for the new SSD
    12. This is to allow the system to try to boot from ONLY the SSD
    13. Swap the SATA cables around so that the new drive is connected to the same SATA port as the old drive
    14. Power up, and verify the BIOS boot order
    15. If good, continue the power up
    It should boot from the new drive, just like the old drive.
    Maybe reboot a time or two, just to make sure.

    Hope this info helps.

    Hey New User.  Did you get your SSD to work?  Does it boot from the SSD?  How/what software used to make it work?
