    Laptop won't boot with fresh installation of Windows 10

    I have an Acer Aspire E5-575-33BM and I can't get it to boot correctly from a new SSD with a fresh installation of Windows 10 for the life of me. The laptop originally came with a 1TB HDD which I still have and still works but naturally, I wanted a more responsive experience and got a 250GB SSD (PNY).

    I know that cloning is iffy, especially when going from a larger storage device to a smaller one but I've made it work before so why not. No dice, I get a blue screen with various errors.

    I think okay, cloning is weird anyway, and move on to plan b which is freshly installing Windows 10 onto the SSD through the laptop. I have my media creation tool set up on a USB drive and have my SSD in and start the process. It's going fine and then the computer prompts a restart so that the computer can boot up to freshly installed windows on the SSD and continue the setup. However, once the laptop restarts and attempts to boot to the SSD, I get a blue screen with the error number 0x0000185.

    Sometimes it says:
    Your PC/Device needs to be repaired.
    The operating system couldn't be loaded because the system registry file is missing or contains errors.
    File: \\Windows\system32\config\system
    Error code: 0xc0000185

    and other times it says something is wrong with the BCD

    I'm unsure of what the problem is, I know the SSD works as I tried to install windows on it through my desktop and it worked perfectly fine, booting up into windows and everything. Does anyone have any solution?

    Also, it seems this guy had the exact same problem as me but there was never a solution posted: Clean Install Troubles; Error code: 0x0000185

    Win 10 Pro (22H2) (2nd PC is 22H2)

    In this case which seems somewhat similar it tuned out the SSD was defective:
    Laptop won't boot. Can only access UEFI. Installation usb won't work.
