Windows 10 Install

I'm trying to install Win10 to a M2. I made a USB installer using wintousb. I can start the installation, but the installer says it can't install to the SSD because it is not formatted to NTSF. Is there anything I can do short of removing the SSD? My computer doesn't have an M2 slot in it, so I'd need to buy an usb adapter for it and if I'm doing that I may as well install the windows image directly to the M2 as has been suggested here.

I would think Windows would format it NTFS for you.   You could make a gpartd flash disk and use that to boot and repartition and format the ssd

I would think that too. It gives me the option to format the 9 or 10 partitions on the 800’s nand, but the option is grayed out for the ssd. I will try gpartd, thanks. 

That is bizarre.   Are you fofllowing the instructions posted in this forum?   I haven't install Win 10 myself,  but seems like there's a trick to it so people wrote up docs on how to do it.

I had to hook up the M.2 SSD to a cheap external USB enclosure to do a fully normal Windows install on to it. Then I moved it into the M.2 internal slot on the VCS 800 and it continued to work just fine.
