Cloned ssd so slow won't boot

Hello,

I recently cloned a small SanDisk ssd to a larger capacity crucial ssd using Macrium Reflect. Everything went fine, everything was cloned properly. When I select the crucial ssd as the boot drive it starts to boot, goes through the windows 10 logo, but gets stuck on a black screen with the spinning circle loading screen. It took 15 seconds to boot from the old ssd before, but I've waited close to 10 minutes for the cloned add to boot, but it gets stuck at a black loading screen.

I've reinstalled the old ssd and removed the new one, and everything works fine.

Any suggestions on how to get the cloned ssd to boot properly? Any help would be appreciated.
