Hi guys,

Today my m.2 SSD arrived and I wanted to clone Win10 to use it on another PC but when I boot it automatically takes me to the BIOS. It doesn't show in BIOS as well. I have 2.5 SSD with Win10 installed on it and when I remove m.2 SSD It boots normally.
I guess it's not formated or something?
I don't want to reinstall windows because I don't have a USB at the moment...

P.S. Sorry for my bad english

Aorus B450 Pro lastest BIOS ver. installed. I can't get into Windows to use clone software. The M.2 SSD model is Team Group MS30.

First off, that's probably not going to work.
Windows is not modular, and you can't just move a drive or a clone to different hardware and expect it to work.

Yes yes...sometimes it does. But that is by no means the most common outcome.
Put the drive in the new system and do a real OS install.

Put this current system back together, and use it as it was.

Need details on the system.

Motherboard, make/model of all drives, what tool you used for this cloning, etc, etc.
