    The easiest solution is probably going to be to install EasyBCD:
    EasyBCD - NeoSmart Technologies

    Scroll down the webpage and you will see the option to "register" for the free, non-commercial use download. You don't really have to register. Click the register button, then on the next screen just click the download button.

    Change your boot partition to C: drive, which my understanding in your screenshot above is Windows 10?
    Changing the Boot Partition

    Then you might have to change your boot order in BIOS to boot from Disk 2 instead of Disk 0. That will make your Windows 10 completely self-contained and whatever you were using to try to clone it should now work.
