    First thing I would do is verify for a firmware update on the m4.
    I can't see anything else than the SSD being bad unless you broke the RAM while swapping the drives..

    Since you left the original hdd there, means you bought another cable to fit the 2nd drive in. In this case, your sata cable might be defect.

    You can also use software like DriveDX to very the status/health of your drives...

    Also run the free program EtreCheck. Run it and it will dhow you in RED what is not compatible with your "upgrade". The program will the show you the path to the incompatible files when you highlight each one to manually delete that file. After all the deleting please reboot so OS X never again run that incompatible service again then enjoy the speed.

    Your EtreCheck file says you have Adware installed! So download AdwareMedic and see if it finds it. This might be the cause.

    I can 't find any thing at this time. Maybe trying a fresh intstall and only transfer back pictures/documents & music back. The reinstall the apps with fresh download copies from MacUpdate.com one at time with theupdTed copies. Just before doing this remember to print out you codes to register problems before erasing.

    Also and look for the files describe in the Apple Support document (and bookmark it) Remove unwanted adware that displays pop-up ads and graphics.
