BIOS not recognizing cloned SSD

Hi everybody.

 

I just purchased a 1TB WD SSD to replace the 1TB HDD that came with my laptop. The OS was able to recognize my SSD, so I had no trouble using EaseUS to make  a clone.

 

The problem began when I tried to go to BIOS to make it boot from the SSD. It just doesn't recognize my new SSD, only the 256GB SSD where Windows is installed.

 

Is there a way to fix this?

In BIOS/ UEFI, there should be a SATA setting you can change. AHCI / IDE are the options, ensure its on AHCI.
