I bought a WD Blue 3D Nand 500gb SSD and ive been trying to get windows on for over 15 hours now. When i install windows trough bootable usb stick after install it asks me to "Reboot and select proper boot device". Even though after checking in the ssd there indeed was windows installed. I've tried cloning the old HDD but the sector sizes don't fit together and the softwares ask you to pay 60€ to get the pro version. Any idea how to get windows working on the ssd?

That WD is a SATA III drive?

For the fresh install, is this the ONLY drive connected?
If not, disconnect all other and try it again.

If you mean the way that the media creation tool does it to the usb automatically then i've tried that and had the same result.
