@Ignazio1, welcome back to the forum.


The best way to clone the SSD is to leave the HDD connected as it came from the factory.  Connect the SSD to another SATA port on the motherboard.  Install Samsung's Data Migration software on the HDD and run it.  It will ask you for the Target drive and you choose the SSD.  Once the HDD has been cloned to the SSD, disconnect the HDD and boot.  The computer should boot to the SSD, since it is now the only drive.  When the SSD boots, you can change the boot order in the BIOS and reconnect the HDD for storage.  I would connect the SSD to the SATA port where the HDD was originally connected.


When the SSD is working as the boot drive you can use Samsung's Magician software to tweak it for best performance.
