Performing clean Windows in mSata
#1
Hi,

I just bought an ACEPC AK1 that will probably arrive in some weeks. I also bought a 240GB mSATA SSD for it.

I want to install the mSATA and make a clean install of Windows on it.

Are these steps correct or I am missing something?

1) I will turn on the computer, get the Windows key (using getkey for instance).
2) I will create a USB bootable install disk for Windows using the Microsoft Windows 10 Media Creation Tool.
3) I will install the mSATA SSD.
4) I will enable the mSATA and disable the eMMC at BIOS.
5) I will install Windows on mSATA using the USB media created at step 2.
6) I will activate Windows 10 using the key obtained at step 1.
7) I will reactivate eMMC and I will format it (I am planning to install libreelec on it).

Are these steps correct?

Where can I get the individual drivers to install?

Finally, I would like to emphasize that I prefer to make a clean install of windows. I don't want to clone my drive.

Thank you in advance.

First of all, prepare your SSD from the version of Windows that will be pre-installed on the eMMC = this is done from the disk manager.
Then, it seems unnecessary to disable the eMMC. No chance to confuse the two storage media, since they have different sizes.
For the rest you seem expert!

For the drivers, you can donwload those I uploaded on Mega.
You can also easily save your own drivers, using "double driver".

Thank you for the answer.

I will make the installation once it arrives.
