Need help installing new SSD!

(Disclaimer - I know the bare minimal about PC's)
So, I've basically purchased a 500GB Crucial SSD card which I have successfully installed into my PC, my PC does pick up that it is installed, however I'm struggling to understand how to make the SSD the boot drive. I understand how to enter the BIOS mode on the start up screen using DEL and reorganising the boot sequence there, however when I set my SSD first, it provided an error. I tried using EaseUS and successfully cloned my whole hard drive to my SSD before trying the BIOS step mentioned.
I'm now back to square one after cleaning my SSD. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Is this a PCSpecialist PC, can you post your full specs from the order page?

It is not a PC Specialist computer no, apologies if it needs to be from PC Specialist to post on the forums, can delete the post if that's the case.
However, I bought the PC little over a year ago now I believe so don't have the full specs to hand.
The basics would be MSI A320-M Pro-E Motherboard, 1x 16GB Ram, AMD Ryzen 5 2600X Six Core Processor, GeForce GTX 1660 GPU. I have a 1TB HDD (unsure exactly what brand etc) and the new SSD I purchased was a Crucial MX500 500GB 2.5 inch.

As PCSpecialist build and sell custom desktops and laptops we can't advise on self builds or competitor builds, you may want to check out Tom's Hardware which is an open forum

Check out about cloning a drive, lots of free tools available, just clone your c drive to the new SSD.
