Hello!

After successfully cloning the original disc of LattePanda Alpha to my Corsair MP510 NVME SSD, using Macrium Reflect software, I would like to disable in some way the original eMMC drive in that way to be invisible in the new Windows cloned version.
There is a safe way to disable from BIOS but, all the time I want to back to it to be re-enable?

Thank you!
Ioan

YMMV

press <ESC> to enter into BIOS Configuration MENU
Third tab "Chipset"
Select "SCS Configuration"
"EMMC 5.0 Controller" change to DISABLE

In later time, when you reenable it, the on-board EMMC (64GB) should be recognized again. However, at that time, the Boot Manager configuration might have been changed. You may have to do something to set it correctly. <-- it is beyond the eMMC (adding a bootable disk) scope

Thank you very much!
I found a simpler method to accomplish my goal: without modifying the BIOS, but just delete the drive letter of the original eMMC disk (using Windows Disk Management) it became invisible and inaccessible. If I make it offline or deactivate from Device Manager a lot of the drivers will be modified / missing (I don't know the cause but for sure is related with nonexistence of the original disk). I suppose that problems with the drivers could repeat if I disable it from BIOS, in my initial approach.
