Alienware M17xR3..
Adata 256g SSD replacing the oem 750g hard drive

Once installed I get no bootable partition in table. I have Win10 Pro on a USB ready to go. Changed raid to ACHI.
I followed every step by step guide/troubleshooting article I've found on the process but it seems like short of cloning the HD first, nothings going to work and I cant figure out why or what Im doing wrong. I'd prefer not to clone because my current Win10 is getting blue screen due to a cumulative update that wont install, unless that could be the problem?

Im honestly at the point I think Ive done a full circle and just over confusing myself

My hope it to install the SSD with fresh Win10 Pro(Win 7 would be ok too) then use the oem HD as extra storage

Any information on this process would be Extremely appreciated
