You would need to go into BIOS and configure it as bootable. Then you are going to have to install Windows 10 on it or clone it from another drive and then make it bootable.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

✔ Best Answer
you cannot clone a 1TB HDD into a 512GB SSD (M.2/NVMe whatever)

yes you can use Macrium Reflect, seems like a professional tool
