    How to configure that my eMMC as boot disk and HDD for storage


    Microsoft Windows 10 Version 1909 (OS Build 18363.592)
    I got a connex laptop from my friend as a gift. I installed WIN 10 on the 32GB eMMC Flash Micro SD card expansion which is obvious not enough space. I'd only +- 9 Gb of space left. Also, the laptop is fitted with a 500Gb HDD. Some software is fine as I just delete the C and replace with D (didn't check it yet, but I guess it will work.

    How can I configure that software being installed on D drive (the HDD) and not on the eMMC which is my C drive (boot drive). I hope that there is an easy way.

    Thank you in advance

    Louis

  2. eMMC flash storage/ windows repair.

    sorry but this does not work. I have a Dell inspiron with a 32gb eMMC and ive tried everything. if you completely delete all partitions on the HDD your pretty much lost. Nothing works. I've tried all formats in Rufus and ive tried disk-part with several
    different configurations and nothing works. when you partition the thumb-drive for GPT it doesnt boot into it.

    Windows 10 install don't boot : EMMC drive set as Storage Space Device

    Hi,

    I'm trying to reinstall windows 10 x64 on a HP notebook after malware, but have a problem with the EMMC drive that doesn't appear in boot manager and gives an error "Boot Device Not Found" at start.

    I have done a lot of tests and follow all usual methods to reinstall windows, but not any worked. I don't put here the list of all i have done but Bios and EMMC drive seem healthy, so i don't think it is a material problem.

    I tryed to reinstall different versions of Windows 10 and 8 with a boot key (made with Microsoft MediaCreationToolbios and Rufus) and Bios settings set to UEFI (security boot and legacy boot desactivated) and EMMC drive completely reseted with DISKPART: clean. The partition table of EMMC drive is well GPT(not MBR).

    All the time the windows install is doing fine, but at restart there is no boot. But all the 4 windows10 partitions (especially the UFI Boot partition) and windows files are well written on the drive, so the Windows installation seems ok

    Where i am now is to think that there is a problem with the EMMC driver, because DISKPART command "Detail disk" says that the EMMC drive is not bootable and the driver of the disk is "Microsoft Storage Space Device" (normally used only for "Storage Pool" Windows feature that i don't use) instead of a normal SATA driver :

    I'm not sure it is normal, as this notebook has only one internal EMMC drive, so it doesn't make sense to create a storage pool.

    I found a post here that seems to correspond to my problem, but the solution proposed at the end doesn't work for me :

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...0-abcf1621fab8

    I used a WinPE boot key to start powershell and delete all storage pool (that could have been made by windows installation) with command "Remove-StoragePool" as it is proposed in the post, but this doesn't work.

    To be sure i'm not going in the wrong direction, could someone tell me if it is normal that an EMMC drive is recognized as a "Microsoft Storage Space Device", that could explain why it is not seen by Bios and declared not bootable.

    In particular if someone has a HP notebook with EMMC drive, could you please look in its properties (like in picture 1) to see how it is recognized by the system in a healthy configuration.

    Thanks a lot for any help
