What do you mean install via SSD?
Please follow the instructions contained within the PDF carefully.

What changes compared to the original microsoft image? Whenever a new version of windows is released, do I have to do a clean installation with your image?

The difference is our image offers full driver compatibility.
Necessary drivers will be missing if you download the Windows 10 image from Microsoft's website.

Well I finally managed to install it, however the system is not as stable as it was before.

I am having problems with bluetooth drivers, the bluetooth suddenly stop working then dissapears from the system and make my minix to crash (blue screen) and when it does not crash the system go sloww (animations, youtube videos etc) so I have to restart windows manually.

Is there any possibility to have the original image from MINIX rather than this one? The original was running perfect without any issue.

Many thanks.

Just updated to Windows 10 1803 using the USB image approach. It should be noted that this is a complete wipe of the system and a new install (which I expected). Any irretrievable data in the device should be loaded onto an external device/drive/etc. That said, the installation did take about a half hour using a USB 3.0 stick in the USB 3.0 slot. No problems noted.

I'm not sure what bloat was present before, but the fresh install cleared about 8-10 GB of memory!

is there any way to force install bluetooth drivers provided by this forum, cause windows bypass the folder and install what it consider most opportune... still having problem with bluetooth

thanks

The file is big and needed to be downloaded without any wrong data.
Sometimes a download manager could help to guaranty file integrity.
