So the 64gb emmc windows install stopped working after i created a bootable usb. After doing this i restarted the computer and didnt hit my bios in time and it tried to boot windows and i get an error that windows cant start and that the computer will restart itself. (without trying to boot from the usb)

I tried using the usb to reinstall windows on it and it doesnt allow me to install to the emmc

please help

You can create "Windows installation USB flash media". Note that it is just for installation purpose only.
USB drive is not for installation of the full Windows Operating System onto it. It is the Microsoft Windows limitation!

Re: install Windows on eMMC
I forgot the actual procedure. But I thought the correct way is to make sure BIOS setting is correct such that EMMC is recognized as a storage media (almost like a hard drive.)
Once that step is done, install the Windows through USB installation media (the flash drive) as a fresh install. It should recognize the EMMC as a possible target for installation. Choose that then continue.

Now i need to fix that, and even though i removed the ssd during the windows install and deleted the microsoft folder from the efi folder. My boot options show the windows and the macos seperately but it also shows a UEFI os on the macos ssd and that didnt use to be there not sure what it is
