having trouble with SSD on Asus M32 desktop

Hey guys, I just got my Asus M32 Desktop from an earlier deal.
http://slickdeals.net/f/8151024-asus-m32-desktop-pc-quad-core-i5-6400-8gb-ddr3-1tb-hdd-win-10-430-free-shipping?src=SiteSearch&page=11#comments

I am trying to move the OS from HDD to SSD, but I can't get it to load/boot. I tried using a Samsung Evo 250gb from the recent deals.

Tried Samsung Data migration and EaseUS Todo Backup to clone the drive but didn't work. When I boot, the computer keeps on going back to the UEFI(?)/BIOS menu. I am able to see SSD in the UEFI(?)/BIOS menu.

Also tried to use the SSD as a completely blank drive, used the recovery CD and system image. The process would fail in the beginning and said something along of the lines of no usable disk.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Safe Boot Off in Bios? Just a thought.
i don't see a "Safe Boot" selection in BIOS. have "Fast Boot" and that's enabled. There's also "Secure Boot" and that's also enabled.

How are you 'moving' from the HD to SSD? Problem is, if you make an image of the HD that has the OS and try to put it on a drive that is smaller, it won't work. It has to be of equal or larger size. If you want your OS to be on a smaller drive, you are going to have to load it up from scratch.

Not necessarily true. Most of your cloning software will automatically resize partitions for you.

OP We need to know more of the process you are following and any errors you got.
