    So I'm looking for a way to boot up an emmc laptop from an ssd. (Yes the laptop can support an ssd) But I've seen one review online which says you cannot change boot order of the laptop.
    But my main reason to put the ssd in the laptop is to reduce boot time and increase overall perfomance.
    I've seen you can clone an emmc into the ssd. So does this allow the laptop to boot from the ssd? So is there a way to boot it from the ssd through cloning?
    The laptop I'm talking about is called "iBall Merit G9" it's a very cheap laptop but is perfect for the type of work I need it for.

    I looked at the manual. It says it can support a SSD. However, it also said not to upgrade the OS, so you must clone the hdd of the unit.

    You need 2 USB memory sticks to do this: you can use Macrium Reflect Free to create a drive image and store it on one USB memory stick. Then have the program also create a bootable Rescue USB memory stick. Then replace hdd with SSD, boot the Rescue USB; insert the memory stick holding the image and restore the image onto the SSD.

    But there is no HDD. It's an emmc which is soldered onto the laptop. And don't mind my lack of knowledge. But if I do what you said, does that mean it'll boot from the ssd?

    Don't know if for sure it will BOOT from the SSD. The manual only mentions it briefly saying it is supported. Try contacting their support -people: [email protected]
