hi all.
i have a dell inspiron 3551 laptop.
i dont think the specs will matter on this thread but if required i can provide.
the laptop came with a 5400 rpm hard drive and i am shifting to a samsung 860evo.
i have made a backup image of the hard drive using [email protected] image and windows 10 is installed on the laptop.
so after i install the ssd and restore the image do i need to make any settings to windows 10?
also is any change in the dell bios required?

Not knowing active disk image it's hard for me to say. But, generally, if you've taken a complete image of all partitions, including the hidden ones, you should be able to restore without issues.

yes the entire drive is imaged.
but we need to stop disk difrag and all that so what all are the settings i must make to improve performance and to tell windows this is a ssd.
also is any change required in the bios?

It's a myth that SSD's don't get optimized. Windows 10 will automatically recognize the drive. Here is a link to a article regarding that issue.

Also, there should be no settings in the Bios specific to SSD drives. As far as I know anyway. You should be able to "just" burn the image and start using the SSD.

You used to have to make a number of changes in windows; ie defrag, indexing, etc. This is not necessary for modern ssd drives and win10.
I have never used the program you refer to above however I would highly recommend using the samsung data migration tool. This will clone your drive and make sure any needed partition offset is correct.
