I have an HP Laptop with 64GB of onboard storage, windows 10 is occupying 75% of the storage and client wants more storage, i was thinking to get an SD card with 512GB of space, insert it into the SD port and install a copy of windows 10 there. Is that possible? i tried but the installation would not boot to the SD card.
