    In a command prompt with admin privileges try:

    select disk 3
    select part 1
    assign letter=w
    bcdboot F:\Windows /s W: /f UEFI
    And you need to delete the second 100MB EFI system partition on disk 3. If you cloned disk 1 to disk 3, how did you get two EFI system partitions on disk 3? And where is disk 2?

    Don't clone - image > restore image.

    Forums all over the internet are full of posts seeking help after cloning, but not too many after after > re-imaging

    There are several solutions you can try:
    1. Remove the original system disk so that your computer can only boot from the cloned SSD.
    2. If you have cloned an MBR disk to GPT disk or cloned a GPT disk to MBR disk, you should change boot mode from Legacy to UEFI or from UEFI to Legacy so that you can boot from the cloned SSD successfully.
