Finally managed to get the m.2 to boot to windows. I'm a noob to all this.

I cloned the emmc to the m.2 using macrium reflect. Make sure you clone all the partitions from the emmc. I was just dragging the windows partition at first. (I expanded the main windows partition on the m.2 at this point too)

In the bios, change the hard disk boot priority near the bottom of the boot section. I was expecting it to be in the boot order section but all you can choose on there are things like, usb, drive, hard disk etc.

The actual hard disk boot priority decides which hard disk option you use and is lower down (2nd from bottom)

Working like a charm now. I bought the kingston 240gb m.2. It was showing as faster than the wd Green.

My opinion on the laptop. The screen is fantastic for the price as is the keyboard. My only gripe is with the speakers. Mine are crackerly when I turn up the volume. YouTube does not sound good.

Anyone else have poor speakers or is it just my laptop.

Can this run Minecraft pls? And can you increase the storage easily?

Hi, Don't know about Minecraft but looking at the specs it states it has slot for M.2 2280 SSD drive, copied and pasted as below.

Sometimes, a little outside assistance helps maximise your potential, SPIRIT comes armed with a USB Type-C port, USB 3.0 port, mini-HDMI port and an SSD window allowing the addition of a solid-state hard drive up to 1TB in size. Coupled with a MicroSD extended slot, Bluetooth 4.2 and WiFi, CODA SPIRIT is ready for additional screens, headphones or speakers (directly or wirelessly) and much more.

Thank you
Looks similar to the Fivetech device's on ebay - hehe rebranded Geo's and come up on the 20%off deals when they come around on ebay. I picked one up a mint refurb for about £76
any good??
basic ms office tasks and roblox??

thinking about one for my 9 year old
I would even consider a laptop with only 32Gb of storage.

This can cause real problem when Windows 10 tries to do a full update (which it does every 6th months or so) and then there is not enough room to hold the OLD Windows and the NEW Windows so it runs out of space

Steer clear.
Recently bought this device & I'm so pleased with it! Great value for money, I'd recommend this
Hot. Why? Make it bootable from the m.2 slot... (m.2 ssd purchase required!).

It's a far smoother process these days, use a 16gb or largee usb stick.

Hmmm, updating Windows10 on a laptop with a 32GB disk, unless you've already got 1903, is not trivial. 1903 will let you specifiy external devices to aid updating...but the best option is to clean install (ensuring you've copied any data files off first).

Or for this deal laptop, add a 128GB m.2 ssd and boot from that.
What is the battery life of these like?
Good for streaming and youtube?
PS. this deal still on @Ebuyer
Also, check out similar 32GB laptops that can be booted from m.2 drives (additional ssd purchase necessary!) from these ebay stores

What's the keyboard and battery life like on this? Is the bottom side underneath metal or plastic?

Most reviews have said the speakers are poor mate.

I'm looking to get one of these, I'm also looking to get an m.2 and/or SSD expansion. I'm not sure of the pros and cons to each. Do you know? I'm a bit of a noob.

Am I right in thinking the m.2 is more easily accessible?

I've looked at WD Green, but also saw the Kingston. I was thinking of sticking with WD due to reliability though. Though I'm considering 480GB instead of 240GB. I'm just trying to determine if it is definitely compatible before ordering.
I can confirm that upgrading your CODA SPIRIT to an internal M.2 Drive and cloning the eMMC drive over to the M.2 drive to make the M.2 your system/boot disk is possible (and worthwhile).

I bought a samsung EVO 860 M.2 2280 and installed that, lots of hassle with the BIOS/EFI getting the system to boot from it... but got there in the end!

Kudos to Sheep34 for giving me the will to go on when I was about to give up, thinking it impossible.. thank you for your post.

I disabled the eMMc drive to save a little battery life, resources and CPU cycles plus I don't want Windows getting any ideas about paging on that slow drive :-)

Obviously everything is a little faster and smoother on the M.2 drive, but I wish I had chosen the WD Blue and saved myself £25, because the difference in speed is marginal between those drives.I feel like I put Pirelli's on a Vauxhall, but let's see how it pans out!

Overall an excellent purchase and one happy customer.

Where do you disable the eMMc drive in the bios? I'm probably missing something obvious :-)

I did the same. The added 240GB m.2 drive is the C: windows boot drive and the original 32GB emmc drive is now D:

Been trying and failing to boot from a usb drive with chrome os on it... anyone managed this? Wanted to install chrome os on the emmc storage but without being able to boot to usb i'm a bit stuck...

you just change the boot order in the bios...
OK, so I bought this laptop. It's got a great screen, nice keyboard, decent I/O for a really low price. It won't break any records except for price but it's fine for simple stuff.

I installed the WD 240GB WD m.2 drive, cloned the original windows install over to this bigger, faster drive and then set the BIOS to make the m.2 drive be the default. Fantastic.


My next party trick was going to be taking Neverware's version of Chrome OS from a bootable USB drive and installing it to the now spare emmc 32GB drive, thus giving me a basic windows laptop with a sprinkle of added chromebook when the mood takes me...


But here's where I hit a snag. I've created three USB drives now with neverware's cloudready version of chrome OS (free for home users) but not one of them will boot when I select them under the boot option (F7). Has anyone else tried this successfully?


My guess is that it's something I might have done when buggering around with the BIOS and making the m.2 drive the boot HD, but I'm already at the limits of my paygrade on this. Any and all suggestions will be gratefully received #EnthusiasticAmateur
