    I've just received my Advanced Plus and performance pack and successfully assembled everything and installed Ubuntu on the eMMC for a start.

    I'd like to now install Win10 on the SSD, but getting stuck at the drive selection. The drive is there, but Windows barfs when selecting it:

    Formatting the partition doesn't help, deleting it and selecting the free space either, recreating either...

    I also tried partitioning and formatting the drive from Linux, trying GPT/MBR partition tables... Everything works correctly but Windows installer still doesn't want to move past this step...

    Any idea?

    So you have 32 GB SSD?

    Correct, the 32GB M.2 from the performance kit.

    I usually delete all existing partition on the same drive, select it and click on "next", without creating any partition. Just installed W10 on my UDOO yesterday on 32G M2 without any issue

    OK got it - you need to first set the SSD as default boot device in the BIOS. Windows will refuse to install on a drive that isn't set as first in the chain, and does so with this world record of an unhelpful error message o_O

    Actually i didn't need to change anything in the BIOS about it and i could install it without any issue. Was I lucky, maybe?

    It's possible my default boot device was changed by the Ubuntu install.
