Can't boot from HDD after i plugged a new m.2 SSD in.

hello guys i dont have general hardware knowledge and i need help.

I build a windows 10 PC a while ago, and i bought a m.2 SSD today.

i wanted to clone my OS from my HDD to the new m.2 SSD, so i just simply plugged the SSD in and turned the PC on.

But the BIOS boots every time after that.

So i guessed that i should change the boot option to HDD but only 1 boot option shows up.

Also PC booted normally when i plugged out the m.2 ssd.

How can i boot from my HDD?

    Change SATA port for HDD, on some systems M.2 would incapacitate one SATA port.
