    It is possible to boot from the M.2 SSD slot on MINIX NEO N42C-4.

    You need to re-install the Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) OS on the M.2 SSD, and disable the eMMC in the BIOS.

    NEO N42C-4’s Windows 10 Pro OS is available to download from the link below:

    or

    Better use a download manager. One of the best is Jdownloader 2.

    1- Install Java : https://www.java.com/en/
    2- Install JD2 : http://jdownloader.org/jdownloader2

    JD2 will catch all valid download links. It will resume downloads after errors.

    Hi folks. New N42C owner here... I just put an 250GB EVO 850 in, and it is visible. For now I was downloading the OS file there as linked above, and would move it to a stick to install. I'm 0 for 3 as it keeps crashing in the FTP Transfer at just over 1 GB. I also have tried to download to my downloads directory.... Any idea what is going on? Using FileZilla...

    Thoughts?

    If the Key is stored in the BIOS, could you use the Win10 "Re-Install A Clean Copy of Windows" option, or would it just try in the same place vs. on the new drive? I don't know if it gives you a selection option to where it will re-install....

    Hi,
    Do you download the file on a NTFS partition ?
    I tried it 2 times without any issue

    That 1.2 gb is the failed (incomplete) file..... is it odd that it shows as 0KB here?

    Yes, it is downloaded in a TMP folder before copied in destination folder.
    Maybe you TMP folder is on a small of full partition (1,2 GB left)...
