    1. Using Macrium Reflect Free, make a backup image of the current C: drive Windows partition only (which I think has already been done). If the entire drive was imaged with all partitions, that is fine too.

    2. Using an 8 GB or larger flash drive that can be erased, and is not the Macrium Reflect Rescue Drive, because you will also need that; make a Windows 10 Installation USB flash drive using Microsoft's Media Creation Tool:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10

    3. Boot the computer from the Windows 10 USB flash drive created with the Media Creation Tool. Do a clean install of Windows 10 to the new SSD. Make sure to delete all partitions on the new SSD until it is just one big unallocated space, select the unallocated space and click next during the clean install:
    Clean Install Windows 10

    4. Boot the computer into the newly installed Windows 10 and make sure the computer is booting from the SSD as desired. Now there are two choices:

    a. Just you the clean install of Windows 10. You can re-install Macrium Reflect Free, mount the backup file of your previous Windows 10 to extract and copy data files you need. You will have to re-install all your apps and programs and redo any custom personalization settings.

    or:

    5. Reboot the computer from the Macrium Reflect Rescue USB flash drive. Restore only the C: drive Windows partition from the backup image over the top of the newly installed Windows 10 partition on the SSD. You only want to do the OS partition, not any other partitions.

    6. After you restore only the C: drive Windows partition, then run the utility to fix Windows Boot Problems from Macrium Reflect Rescue.

    The above steps have the advantage that you will end up with the standard partitions in the standard order on the SSD. You will have to use some reagentc commands to reinstate the Windows Recovery Environment, if you want to, though. Or just delete the recovery partition that will be created and expand the OS partition to fill the empty space.
