Samsung includes cloning software, but I find it easier to start from scratch and just reinstall windows clean.

So, what are you trying to do? Install windows then clone the drive, or just clone the drive?

Also if I can get it to clean install I want to just wipe all data from my other ssd and just start fresh

Download the program here:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows10

 

Use this to create a bootable windows 10 installation device  out of a 4GB + USB

 

Plug it into your computer, boot from it and it will walk you through the process

Click it and that will format your drive for install.

You just need to click on the drive and then click next. Don't worry about the other options.

 

If there is a popup saying the drive needs to be GPT I've help people through THAT problem before as well.

Thanks that worked!!!

Now when it is finished do I just connect the other ssd and format it to new? Or do I need to go into bios and select the m.2 as the only boot drive? Or what?

rookie mistake, never create a new partition to install windows, delete all partitions and click next on the unallocated space.

The drive the OS is installed to will be the boot drive by default.

 

If the other drive (not the NVMe one) is also new, get into Windows, right click on the windows start button in the bottom left corner of the screen, and click on disk management:

Then go to your other drive that has a black label and the text about unallocated space, right click it, and then click "new simple volume." Just follow the setup wizard from there. Don't forget to name the drive and select your desired drive letter in the setup wizard!
