Can't choose the 256GB SSD I installed as boot derive

HP Recommended
Omen 15-en0xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I just bought and installed a 256GB HP S700 SSD. I cloned everything to the new SSD using Macrium Reflect. But when I try to change the boot drive, it only shows the default Samsung SSD. How can I solve this issue?

First off, remove the Samsung and boot only from the new drive.  If that works, you know the new drive is bootable.


Second, you can use a utility to migrate the boot files from the old drive to the new -- and while I know you do not need to do this, the utility should then change the default boot to the new drive.  You get the utility from here:
