    Ooops!
    For item 2) when you hit F12 key, you will get the Boot Menu, not the BIOS Settings. Anyway, there should be two Windows Boot Managers at the Boot Menu, try the top one first, see is it booting to the M.2 NVme? Then skip to step 5) to continue.

    Thank you all for your help, Ive got a clean HDD and bootable SDD! I do get a bluescreen "stopthiscode" from windows once in a while so may have to reinstall windows or look for solution later but mostly running stable without issues. Thanks again, so happy to finally got this ssd running.

    I had a machine come in earlier this week having a stop code like that after a SSD upgrade. I updated her from the 1904 version or W10 she had to 20H2 (the latest) and the issue completely went away.

    So I have the same model pc and I’m having a hard time figuring out which ssd to order. Will this one work?: Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD 500GB - M.2 NVMe Interface Internal Solid State Drive with V-NAND Technology (MZ-V7S500B/AM) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07M7Q21N7/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_2875CHM5VRY5NF3PXKJD?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

    The Aspire GX-785 models support an M.2 SATA 3.0 SSD, the one you link is an NVMe instead, so likely will not work.
