    Does the GLK allow for the primary partition to be moved to a SSD in the accessory slot?
    Recommendations for procedure?

    Thank you,

    Yes, you have to fresh install your win10 pro into SSD (NVMe), and go to select boot priority in BIOS (click DEL when power on).

    Can't say I tried it but in theory it seems like this should work

    Haha... I used "clonezilla" to do it from eMMC 64GB to my NVMe 500GB, but remember to extend the size when cloning, it's work to clone original OS to NVMe SSD, now i'm using 500GB as primary, eMMC 64GB had been disabled to hidden for spare (disable in BIOS).

    If you haven't disabled eMMC 64GB, you can see two "windows boot manager" in list after clone your OS to NVMe SSD.

    This worked brilliantly, once I did it correctly. When cloning it is imperative that you drag and drop the volumes such that the main volume is at the end so you can expand it via windows disk management. A direct 1:1 clone leaves you fighting the partition gods and windows won't boot without the recovery partition on the drive. Basically, watch the video and do what they do. Rather than automatically shrinking last partition to fit, you clone it to the end and expand later once the cloning operation completes. Alternatively you can spend money and they, or others like them, allow you to shuffle the partitions after the fact.
    Thank you!
