on the screen it says

How did you do this migration?? Was it with a Samsung provided program - which seems to be not working. You would not be the first case of failure.

Apparently it did not work OK. Activated could refer to activation with the product key or to the active partition. No idea what they refer to.

Have a look at my tutorial;. If you want to go the easy way, get the Paragon Migration Tool. It's linked in the tutorial. That does the job with 3 clicks and is 100% reliable. I have used it many times.

System setup is where the date and time are stored and where startup preferences like NumLock or Passwords are defined. In addition, many hardware settings are defined in System Setup.

In particular, Solid State drives are often controlled here. At the simplest level, SSDs are numbered in Setup as Drive 0, Drive 1, etc or sometimes as Primary Master, Primary Slave. Whichever way these are named, they have a basic ON / OFF setting (sometimes AUTOMATIC or something similar).

If your drive is not detected it may be because it is turned OFF in System Setup.

In most cases, the boot drive is Drive 0 or Primary Master. When you add a second drive to the system, it may be need to be enabled by turning it ON in System Setup.

For the SSD to be detected in a new installation, the drivers for the add-in SATA controller/motherboard must be loaded at the beginning of installation.

The drivers for the controller/motherboard can probably be found either on the CD that came with it or on the manufacturer's website.
