Question Device keeps on booting using the HDD instead of the SSD?

I managed to install an SSD in my laptop with a 1TB HDD pre-installed. I cloned the boot partition to the SSD, as well as the Recovery partitions, using Macrium Reflect. However, the laptop won't seem to boot using the SSD. In the BIOS, only the current HDD is the only option when looking at the UEFI boot order. When I enable legacy boot, the SSD appears there and is first in priority compared to the HDD. But since UEFI is always preferred over legacy, it won't boot using it.

How do I fix this?

Apparently when I cloned the partitions I wanted using Macrium Reflect, something failed so it wasn't actually 'bootable.' Found this out by enabling Legacy boot option then manually selecting my boot device during startup. Using the SSD, it says that no bootable device can be found.

Used EaseUS to clone again and the SSD now appears under the UEFI boot order.
