In theory (I haven't tried it), this should work:
- Download latest-available Windows 10 64-bit ISO file from Microsoft.
- Use Rufus to put this ISO onto a flash stick, choosing GPT partition scheme.
- Start Windows 10 installation process.
- At the scene where you pick where to install, use commands provided to delete all existing partitions on the eMMC (this is to ensure GPT partition table is created).
- Select to install to the unused space (which should be all of the drive now) on the eMMC (this allows Windows 10 to control partitioning).
Hope this helps,
Thank you so much !!, the system has finally started and it seems to work all right!
I had already done exactly what you said, except for the cancellation of the previous partitions, which evidently blocked the system's departure.
I'm in doubt now .... can the deletion of these partitions lead to system instability in the future?
I really thank you, you saved me.
No. Only by deleting all partitions can we guarantee that a GPT partition table is laid down. The fact that it worked after doing this tells us that the drive previously had a MBR partition table -- which would only be bootable if using Legacy (non-UEFI) boot.
By deleting all partitions, you did lose the ability to recover to the 32-bit Windows 10 image, but that shouldn't be an issue because one for recovering to the default 64-bit Windows 10 image was created instead.
You are good to go. If you have problems running Windows 10 upgrades (because of additional space 64-bit system files take on disk), you can use a SDHC/SDXC flash as (temporary) extra space for the O/S during the upgrade process.
Hope this helps,
