I have seen a few instances similar to yours.
Some HP consumer PCs have issues with some SATA SSDs. I don't know why this is true.
You should be able to enter the BIOS to check if the new SSD is detected in the BIOS. A SATA device is a SATA device. You should be able to enter the BIOS when the new SSD is connected to the system.
Connect the factory HDD as the primary boot disk and connect the new SSD to a second SATA port then boot to Windows installed on the HDD to see if the BIOS detects the SSD as a secondary storage device.
Try cloning the SSD using Macrium Reflect free (Link).
Try a different SSD: HP, Crucial, Team, San Disk, or others.

Thank for your advice.
I tried connect new SSD via SATA USB cable and boot the PC (HDD remain as primary), no issue at all and it able to enter BIOS.
Once enter BIOS, it able to detect both HDD and new SSD.
I have tried to cloned using Samsung migration software and Macrium Reflec software, both give the same results (cant boot /Hang/cannot enter BIOS)

You're very welcome.
Connecting using a USB/SATA adapter verifies the SSD works.
But try using a internal SATA connection with this device to see if you can see the drive in the BIOS.

Your PC could fall into this category if you cannot see the drive using a SATA connection.
