How did you get this working?

Here are the steps I took...
1) attached my Amazon.com: Inateck USB 3.0 Hard Drives Docking Station for 2.5 Inch and 3.5 Inch HDD SSD SATA I/II/III, Support UASP and 10TB Drives, Optimized for Ssd(Fd1003): Computers & Accessories[^] to the Mac Mini USB port. (I had this device from previous windows-based HDDs that I've cloned to SSDs.)

2) inserted the new SanDisk 250GB SSD
3) The disk wasn't readily recognized and I had to look around to find out how to do that-- finally found the disk utility and I had to erase and reformat the SSD - https://support.apple.com/guide/disk-utility/erase-and-reformat-a-storage-device-dskutl14079/19.0/mac/10.15[^]

After that, I could see the drive was attached, but I tried the EaseUS software and it said it could not create a bootable clone.

4) searched for and found the Copy Cloner software and it did the rest. Pick your source and your target) and Copy Cloner takes care of it.

5) I was quite nervous after taking the entire thing apart and re-assembling because there was no way to know for sure that Copy Cloner had gotten everything correct, but the computer booted up perfectly from the cloned SSD.

That's it.

It's probably that first thing that you need -- the Mac Disk Utility.
Good luck. Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
