so this PC is booted in UEFI secure boot mode

after the clone get boot working with only 1 boot drive present, the new drive  cloned

then if secure boot go to boot order

and set the the windows boot manager there to new DRIVE code, in the list there.

 

if old drive cloned  is corrupted so be the new drive.

some cloning apps do not work right,  use current and best brands.
