Lenovo Legion t530-28ICB m.2 ssd upgrade

Hi, I bought a 1TB Samsung 970 EVO NVMe m.2 for my Lenovo Legion T530 to replace the existing 256GB Samsung M.2 drive.  I cloned the new drive but the new drive will not boot properly, it says operating system not found.  I see the drive fine when connected to my external usb adapter.  Is the Lenovo Legion T530-28ICB motherboard compatable with:

Hi, I fixed this I just wanted to let people know if they had the same issue.

 

I had to change the BIOS to boot into Legacy instead of UEFI, and I found out my new HD was formatted MBR instead of GPT.  Once I changed it to GPT and reenabled UEFI in BIOS, it booted fine.  Thanks!
