I have this motherboard https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-A320M-S2H-rev-1x#kf
ryzen 2200g apu
and i bought 500 gb ssd of WD blue nvme m.2 :-
Western Digital WD Blue NVME SN550 500GB M.2 2280 PCIe Gen3 Internal Solid State Drive

I cloned the C drive to ssd and tried to boot with it, It doesnt work.
At first when i have HDD and ssd connected it shows the ssd as boot drive in bios but when i remove the HDD and and select the SSD only it doesnt boot with it.
I have tried disabling CSM support, tried changing Sata to raid and other option.
I have formatted the ssd in GTP format tho at the first.

Today i have decided to give the option and try to install fresh windows on the ssd following these steps

The first and only thing you should've done after getting an SSD was install the OS from scratch after creating your bootable installer. Cloning your existing installation is always hit or miss and a lot of troubleshooting is needed.

You don't need to be in CSM mode, leave Fast Boot on, Secure Boot off, make sure your bootable USB installer is the first device during boot priority.

True I installed windows latest version by Media creation tool. That worked very well, My OS is loading quite fast now but the issue is my bios is kinda slow. It takes around 1 minute to boot.
my bios version is F32

they have released F50 but i dont wanna update this bios unessecary and updating would not make it faster either.

Secondly i have fast boot off, But doesn't fast boot simply stops keyboard etc and saves like 1 or 2 second.
