Hi,

I’be recently upgraded to some Ryzen hardware and tried to clone my old drive into my Samsung m.2 drive using Clonezilla. It said it failed because of the drive size. From 256GB to 250GB.
I tried various things to get it working but it just didn’t boot so I decided I would just reinstall Windows fresh into my new m.2 drive.
It goes through the process of installing then it asked to restart and after that it fails to proceed and asks what I want to do - start windows normally, boot into safe mode, last known good configuration, etc. I tried all the options but it just doesn’t work.
I tried disabling CSM in bios, removing all other drives, reinstalling a few times but it just doesn’t work.

There’s also this device Samsung boot manager in Bios, this this normal?

My machine specs are:
ASUS TUF B450M-PLUS Gaming motherboard with the latest bios
Ryzen 5 3600 CPU
32GB RAM
Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 SSD

Can someone help me with this?

Thanks
