Want to install an SSD in my HP PC

HP 24-e080na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Tried to install a Samsung EVO 860 1TB SSD, but just hangs at boot at the HP start up screen.  Can't get into the Bios either. Tried everything and the cloned disk definitely has MBR. 


Seen another post where someone else had the same problem and used another brand. On the Crucial Web site it says my model HP PC is not compatible with SSD drives. 


Is this true? Please advise.

According to this UK site, you need an adapter tray and a Kingston SSD.
