how to add a boot of windows 2016 operating system in a vhd to a computer running a windows 10?

I have a computer running windows 10 in disk C.
I installed another OS: windows 2016 server. This windows 2016 was installed on a VHD disk.
The VHD file is located in the same disk C where my Windows 10 OS.
Now I have a dual boot system and I can choose one of this 2 options at startup:  1) windows 10 and 2) windows 2016. All works fine.
Now I added a new SSD disk to my computer. I run the Acronix software and did a backup image copy of my system disk C into the new SSD disk.
The SSD disk now contains a copy of windows 10 system disk which includes also the VHD file.
After reboot with new SSD disk I get again 2 options to choose the OS: windows 10 and windows 2016.
When I choose windows 10 it works ok running faster from the new SSD disk.
When I choose windows 2016 it works ok also but it is running from the original VHD file location i.e. in the hard disk .
Now comes the question:
How to fix the boot so that when I will choose windows 2016 option at startup, it will run the OS from the VHD file located in the SSD disk and not from the VHD file located in hard disk.?
Thank you
