Dell inspiron 13 from Ms store - ssd not booting

Bought the 13 " dell inspiron from MS store in march. Bought a transcend ssd. Cloned it using macrium software.

When I put the ssd in, laptop says no Bootable drives found. Anyone have the same issue? Tried few troubleshooting options from the top Google search results. But no luck. The drive works when plugged in through USB.

>> The drive works when plugged in through USB.

What do you mean "works"? Can you boot from this usb-attached ssd?

Did BIOS see the new SSD drive when installed inside?

What exactly did you already try?

In general, you can clone disk one more time with another
software, may be Acronis or similar.

I had similar experience:
new Samsung SSD was cloned by Macrium and failed to boot.
Then I repeated cloning with Samsung Migrate software and it was success.

To be fair to Macrium -- I used it successfully 3-4 times before.

Most likely Marium failed to clone the recovery partition from Dell. (you can compare number of the partitions from both ssds) Like other have mentioned, you can try different cloning software. It would probably be easier just reinstall the OS from Dell recovery media if you havent put a lot of app/data on this new laptop.

Thanks. Tried again by copying all partitions and it worked.
