Allow booting from Micro SD card on HP Stream 14

HP Recommended
HP Stream (14 - z010nr)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have seen several posts here on the forum. Unfortunately all just 'dead ended' into incorrect/no answer or the classic  "Thread is locked".

I have a fast (U3) 500Gb micro SD. that is formatted correctly. Additionally I have made it bootable and set the boot flag in G-Parted. The BIOS on the stream is not seeing the card at all. Once I boot to the OS though, the card is immediately seen along with its contents.

I need to be able to boot and load an OS from the SD card, as the soldered hard drive is too small to hold any type of OS and take updates.

The Stream does not support booting from SD cards -- so claiming this is incorrect does not help.

 

As to doing updates on Streams, they can be done but it involves a lot of work:  https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebooks-Knowledge-Base/Updating-Windows-10-OS-on-an-HP-Stream-with-3...

 

Also, as to doing routine Windows updates, if you run the utilities shown below, you should be able to free up enough "disk" space to do those:

Also, the community Win10 Forums has the following suggestions:

Finally, there is a freeware app known as Wise Disk Cleaner. I use it every day to get rid of junk files: https://www.wisecleaner.com/wise-disk-cleaner.html
