My computer was freezing randomly for around 20-30 seconds and it was a faulty SSD. I cloned the contents to a new one. When I disconnected the old one I could boot from the new one and the freezing problems had stopped. But when I try to boot again I get 'Reboot and Select proper device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key'. I reconnected the old SSD and booted, then disconnected it again and booted into bios where I could select the Windows Boot Manager. But it disappeared again the next time I wanted to boot. So I can only boot once after I disconnect the faulty SSD.

I cloned the SSDs with Macrium Reflect. The SSDs are the same size so I just dragged the four partitions that appeared to the new drive. The partitions are:
1 - Recovery NTFS Primary, 2 - NO NAME FAT32 (LBA) Primary, 3 - Unformatted Primary, 4 - (C) NTFS Primary.

So why can't I boot from the new SSD?

I've cloned it again. Now it boot's properly at least the first couple of times. I'll come back if it happens again. For now it's solved.
