After buying a cheap SSD (Sandisk 120Gb) and made a system clone from my current HDD, it worked well (booted faster and whatnot). I couldn't fully install the newest Windows 10 1903 because my System Reserved Storage was not big enough (I used EaseUS to make the System Clone).
I used MiniTool Wizard to try to extend the system reserved by about 200 MB more, but when I restarted and booted using the SSD, I kept getting the error screen, usually getting stuck o the startup repair, saying there's something wrong with "winload.exe," or "\Boot\BCD"
I've tried running solutions with a bootable Win10 flash drive, used CMD to run things like "Bootrec /fixMBR," "Bootrec /FixBoot" (always said access is denied), and RebuildBCD, but no other solution I searched for worked. I'm not sure whether I've corrupted the SSD by trying to extend the volume.

If your SSD is smaller than the drive you cloned I would just start over with a clean Windows setup on the SSD and delete all the existing partitions on it when setup starts.
I thought about that after constantly trying to work it out, but when scanning the OS to try to run off of one, I managed to run the Win10 on my SSD after booting through my HDD. I opened dskmgmt, and it showed that the partitioning worked! However, I can't boot from the SSD, I have to work around it to get into it.
